Hey everyone! I am looking to upgrade the speakers in my truck to some loud nice sounding ones! First off What size are in the front doors? (6-3/4) The Rear doors? (4" x 6) Am i correct on the sizes? The truck is a 2006 4 door long bed. no bose or onstar... And Next what speakers do you recommend for nice loud sound.... may be adding two 12" subs. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! :thumb

check out crutchfield Put in your year, model etc. and you can shop just for stuff that fits your truck. They seem to be one of the best places for car audio.

assuming you have an aftermarket head unit. you have to run

power cable from battery

2 sets of rca cables (front/rear) i just ran one and used a "Y" at the amp

one wire for the amp to know when to turn on/off. head unit to amp.

then i ran speaker wires from amp to every door.
