I "Was" going to go to a local stereo place and have them put in a new head-unit and component speakers as well as an amp and sub but after everything else i'm doing i just cant afford $2600 for that.

I do however want to replace the stock speakers since they suck (I have non JBL). I am looking for a set of Coaxials to replace front doors, rear doors as well as the tweeters in dash.

My only requirement for this is I don't want to do any cutting of the speaker grill like for the Infinity Kappa's (While I know the kappas are great, I don't want to cut/maim the interior to put them in).

I'd like to keep it around $500-$800 or less for the 6 speakers total.

Alpine type r's would be a good choice. U will have to get a door shim kit for the front door. The kit will run u about 13 bucks on eBay. The rear door u will have to cut out the old speaker out of its mounting hardware which is easy. Push the cone out with our hands and cut the plastic blamo ready to install

Will u be adding a sub? 6.5 have a better quality sound. They will be more crisp than a 6x9.

I run 6.5 in all doors. A round speaker will always sound better than a non round speaker.

Won't Be doing sub for now, not enough $$.
So would 6.5 Front and back be better?

Having to shell out a lot of money right now for Bed Liner, Tint, Lift, Wheels, Tires, Intake, Fender Flare, Hypertech Speedo Calibration and LED Lights.

I will probably be doing a sub eventually so ill stick with 6.5's

I looked at these brackets on eBay.
They are kind of confusing though. This one says its for the front door, and This one says its for the rear door, but they look backwards.

They say they are for 6.5" speakers.

When I ordered mine I was thinking the same thing. I don't know if they realise they have that wrong. Then again Toyota can't figure out that there vehicles r prewired for a lot of shit lol

I believe platinum sells this stuff as well. I think he could get u hooked up with a dash kit and the harnesses u will need for the head unit. For the speakers just reuse the harnesses that come on our stock speakers. As it will make it simple plug and play for install day

Ok. Well. Im lookin at
I could get that and install it with the speakers and everything for around $600 total.

My question is, will everything still work on the steering wheel? Such as Volume, Mode, Track Next/Prev as well as the Talk Key and Phone keys?
