It has been a loooooooooooooooong time since I have visited this forum. I recently had to purchase a new car, and got a 2003 Ford Explorer 4 door. Unfortuantely the stock sound is TERRIBLE and has to go!
I'm reusing my Kenwood MP8017 HU, and my Hifonics Zeus ZX6400 85x4 rms @ 4ohms amp.
I am looking at the Polk MOMO MMC570's and the Polk MOMO MMC525's. According to the Crutchfield "What fits my car", the 5x7s will fit the front doors, and with an adapter ring the 5.25s will fit front or rear doors. I assume that the 5x7s won't fit the rear doors because of the their mounting depth.
Has anyone ever installed either set in a similiar year Explorer? Can anyone confirm whether or not the 5x7s will fit the rear doors? From a sound quality perspective would it be ok for me to install the 5x7s up front and the 5.25s in the rear? Would it be better to put the 5.25s in all four doors?
I'd really appreciate any input, suggestions, or experience anyone can offer.
