    Default Speaks for the truck! w00t

    I absolutely love cheap car audio - because if it gets stolen, I wont lose sleep.

    Either way...

    I just bought some DB series 5x7 speakers - they had a buy one pair get second pair half off...

    And they are perfect for my truck and since I havnt enjoyed the virtue of being able to really purchase something in the last few months - I decided to take the plunge earlier...

    I really liked my old DB Components I bought for the 91 -- I decided I didnt want to go complex on this truck...

    I probally wont go with any seperate amps as this truck is so quiet on the inside at moderate levels it is plenty loud... sound quality is neither here nor there...

    I will eventually get a rocking DVD/GPS/Rear View camera head unit - but that is a few years away and the truck has to continue to run like it has...

    Anyways - just glad to be a Polk owner again! :)

    I received the speakers earlier today ---

    I installed them as well... took about a hour.

    I am very educated on removing my door panels. Well except for the rear ones, I have never removed those before. But the front ones, plenty of times -- and since all you have to do is pop that grill off to get to the speakers, it was extremely easy.

    The speakers thought sound phenominal... good amounts of bass, very tight -- the highs are crisp...

    For 150 for 2 sets, I cant be more pleased...

    Time will tell -- I have alot I want to do with my truck, only reason I replaced the speakers was simply because of the crutchfield deal. So I am happy - much better than the stock speakers, for sure.

    To much - I love this truck and have literally tore everything apart and making it mine...

    In the future (over the next few years) - I will talk about what Ive so far later on...

    I want to replace the headers with performance headers, get true dual side exit exhaust (in front of the rear tires) (two pipes per side)

    20" chrome wheels -- wide 5 spoke

    DVD/GPS/Rear view camera head unit

    I will probally get the exhaust about mid next year - the wheels about a year later - and the head unit will be the very last thing I get because I want it as up to date as possible...

    Im really trying to take my time and do this right...

    And with funds shorter with the economy sucking - it is definitely taking more time.

    About 4 months after getting the truck I replaced the in take and that made such a big difference in the pedal response - not even funny. Drives like a totally different truck. Dosnt lag, lots of pick up to it.

    The next thing I do in the next month or so is get the throttle body cleaned and the inner intake... as it is getting around that time and I want it professionally cleaned...

    I will probally keep this truck for a very long time --- Im hoping atleast 20 years... unless gas gets rediculous... and I might even keep it longer when I get a new vehicle - as this is the truck Ive dreamed about. Dosnt have all the fancy spancy electronics -- not alot that can wear out and break and I can still work on it with my knowledge.. so - lots of perks. Not to mention its a great truck.

    When it gets to 6 a gallon - Ill be a little more concerned...

    3.60 compared to global prices is pretty reasonable.

    Back in 03 - I still had Polk RTi and a Yamaha receiver...

    Back then I was done -- about 10 pairs, 5 amps, 4 preamps, 3 subs, 10 different arrangements, two tvs, two trucks, 1 truck system, 3 different rooms --

    Things have changed. ;)

    what kind of power does your amp have powering those DB 5x7's? I think I need more power. as I have four of them in my car and they don't get loud enough and bass is lacking. I don't have a dedicated sub in my system.. I think I need a sub and a more powerful 4 ch amp.

    Im just using the stock head unit...

    I dont want to listen to loud so I do not plan to add a seperate amp to this setup at any point. I will add a very nice aftermarket head unit and a small subwoofer (8 or 10") for low end reinforcement...

    But the DBs have decent bass about 50hz or so...

    You not going to add a separate amp for the sub?? *scratches head*

    Oh, wait...don't tell me you're going to settle for one of those abominations of a 'basslink' or whatever again, are you??


    But congrats on the process of making it YOUR truck. Glad you're enjoying it. You'll have to keep us updated as your plans become reality.

    Nah I think I am going to get a cheap seperate amp, small 8 or 10" sub - custom enclosure...

    Im over the whole powered sub route. I went that route last time because of space constraints - there isnt that much more room now...

    But its alot better than before! :)

    I dont want to put a seperate amp on the mains because I do not have anywhere to put it.. :)

    And I dont want to blast myself - last time the system got so loud, I refused to listen at low volumes because it sounded so good turned up...

    Those DB components were MEAN.

    So what have you done so far with regards to the mods? I remember you said you were going to get a bed cover or something like that? Or was it chrome bed rails?
