Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
Did this only happen with the sub and not the speakers?

OK great Jay - If you could send me link to the direct fit 6" ones that would be great (and if they come also in a nice pack with the tweeters I would need that would be great as well) - and I'll source the Memphis Audio midranges or look into other 2.75" midranges for the rear doors and dash

I'm just trying to get my Midbasses from JL right - Prop used a 6.5" JL Audio, Jay you used a 6" one?
Hey- you willing to fiddle with your stock sub? If you are, I took mine apart last night. I discovered that if I can find smaller subs that'll fit, we might have yet another dimension to improve on the cheap. If you're up for it, I may look for a set that'll fit, put it together and send it to you for your thoughts. If it works, that'd be awesome.

I am not sure if my mother in law's '01 has a sub. If it does, I may start there just to ease the logistics. But it would be fun to see if this will work.

I'm going your route X53Jay with the JL C2-600s in all four doors and the C2-075 tweeters in the doors as well.

I got the Memphis units coming for the dash.

I'll run these on the stock OE Factory Nav/HiFi system until I get up the nerve and dough to do the Eonon GA6166 Head Unit install.

Got some good eBay deals from

JL Audio C2-075ct 0.75" Car Speaker Tweeters 356052104 | eBay


JL AUDIO C2-600CW +2YR WRNTY 6" 150W 4 OHM CAR AUDIO STEREO COMPONENT MID WOOFER | eBay

and

Memphis Power Reference PRX275 2.75" Coaxial Speakers 30w/Max 15w/RMS One Pair | eBay

OK. I have guests from out of town this weekend and a San Antonio drive for next week. This may take some time to become real, but it's not due to a lack of interest! Moohahahahha

Prop's deal was awesome
