best door spearker to fit in my 00 F250

running off the radio (no amp) . Well maybe mot the best, casue hell I don't want to pay no $500 for just door speakers. I was told they are 5x7's in the door. I was looking at the new RF's, 5x7's but they were like $250 or somewhere around there. Sounded pretty good though. What else is out there? Not looking for a system for the truck, just better speakers over the stock. Still need to get a head unit for it to.

Thanks Brandon

Fosgate mids and highs suck balls, if you can't tell, ask anyone with a good ear, i've NEVER heard a pair that sounded good, and i've heard one or two.


you shouldn't pay more than 150$ for speakers that won't see more than 15 watts btw, IMO.


honestly, the best way to spend the money would be to buy a small amplifier to put on your two front door speakers and throw a decent (250$ or more) coaxials or components in there.

Power is your friend. Always add a big amp.

Well the reason I don't want to add an mp, is casue there is just not much room for one. And I don't want to put one behind the rear seat sine I usually leave my life vests back there and some other things to .


EW you carry those speakers right? Also how much is it for install?

bear in mind, an amplifier powerful enough to run two front speakers won't be large at all, i have a fosgate punch 60 that is TINY and will run speakers VERY well.

you could put it under a front seat, if you were so inclined, if the floor is flat, and you don't have power seats.

well I do have powerseats, heck in my other car I run a punch 300 for the mids with crossfire speakers. It sounds pretty good to me. I just figure I could get something that would sound alot better than the stock speakers without adding an amp. Never know, I might have to stop by some stero shops to see where they would mount one at.


oh this is a 00 250 crew cab

oh shit, it's in a truck? you can definitely put an amp under the front seats in one, or if you have a seperate console, possibly under there.

i was thinking mustang for some reason.

Amps would have to go under rear seat or on back wall in that truck with power seats.
Install is $45pr.
