    Any experiences with replacing factory 6x9 with a better 6x9?
    Geek Squad dude states better to replace factory and stay away from components and it the 6.5.
    Got me all confused now.
    Thanks.

    I would stay away from Geek Squad unless he really knows Tundras. Might want to ask how many Tundra installs he has done. I have Infinity components and very happy with them. I have not upgraded the amp yet. I was going to do the amp first but thought I would switch the order and do the speakers first. The tweeters make a big difference. You might get more bass out of the 6x9s.

    Probably because they don't sell speaker adapters and his computer tells him they don't fit. I think the only qualifying question those guys are asked when hired is, "Have you ever sat in a car and listened to music? Good, you're hired!"

    The stock 6x9 aren't exactly the same as regular aftermarket 6x9. Generally speaking, using a 6.5 with an adapter bracket is the correct approach

    What happened to the 6 x 9? Back in day, in the 80's (Dating myself) the 6 x 9's were BOSS. They were the "go to" or before subs it seemed. I remember the Pioneer's 6906 (3 way) or 6907 (4 way) with an amp was all you needed. LOL Kenwood and Jenson had some that were ok, probably others.

    Are the 6 x 9 not ever a "go to" anymore?

    Don't forget the Clarion 100-EQB-2 5 Band Graphic Equalizer. In my late 70's HS circles you weren't chit if you weren't running the Clarion.
