F350 extra speakers?

I have an 06 F350 regular cab. I have 4 speakers in it but I want to add more but I can't find a place for them. Has anyone found a place to mount extra speakers? And I'm not looking to add a subwoofer for that stupid "BA BOOM BA BOOM" music.

You didn't give us a lot of info on what you have done already. Do you have upgraded speakers now or just the factory ones what kind of head unit do you have. Not sure what you have done so far but I think you will have much better success upgrading what you have now than trying to add more speakers to a very limited space. If you have already upgraded the radio and existing speakers you could add an amp to the system to run the speakers.

I have 4 aftermarket pioneer speakers and a pioneer fh-x700bt head unit. I'd put an amp in but I'm afraid to mess up the speakers and i don't know how to set up an amp.

Have a 4 channel amp installed to drive the Pioneers you have. You will be shocked!
I was.

What type of amp? And are they hard to install? I don't want to blow my speakers out either.

You want a 4 channel amp. Here you go hopefully this wiil help. Amplifier Wiring Diagram
You need to figure out what pioneer speakers you have and how much power they can handle and pick the amp accordingly.

Obviously this all looks pretty complicated for someone who has no electrical experience. How much does it cost to add an amp? And what would the cost be for installation?

Speaking of stock speakers, what size does a stock super duty come with? I have my RR that rattles. I would presume the previous owner had the volume up to loud. And would like to replace them.

Sorry didn't get back.
I suggest you get the highest quality most powerful amp you can afford at this time. The idea is to run the amp at low power outputs to get the cleanest most efficient sound. The amp will run cooler and will sound better for a longer time.
Just like driving the truck easy or hard. Which is best? EASY! (usually).
I had Infinity amps and really liked them.
Now I have Rockford Fosgates and they are garbage. I already lost one channel in the sub amp in less than two years.
