I'm thinking about replacing my stock speakers in my 04 SCrew F150 Lariat. I don't have the audiophile system and I just wanted somethin that sounds better. Does anyone know what speakers come stock in the front and rear door panels on my truck? Also, suggestions on cheap speakers w/ good performance would be greatly appreciated. I know nothing about my trucks audio system and really need to know the sizes of these speakers as well as the depth.
Thanks and I hope ya'll can help!

[QUOTE=HammerFX4]I took the size you gave,6x8 when I went looking yesterday.I found 6x9 everywhere but no 6x8.Are you sure about the size or did you mean 6x9?
There 6x8 I just replaced mine about 2 weeks ago with Pioneer 3 ways as well. They sound really good although the stock speakers sound good as well before I replaced them. You should be able to get 6x8's anywhere! I got mine at Best Buy, but I see them everywhere...they are not 6x9's.
6x8" is the typical Ford size. They have been using it for many years, in many different vehicles. I dont know what the speaker mount looks like on these trucks, but on past vehicles that came with the 6x8"s, you could sometimes get a 6x9 to work. The selection is not lacking in the 6x8 size either. Check out crutchfield.com for some options. If you check my gallery, you can see what 6x8s I used in a past bronco. I would recommend them to anyone. They have a very crisp sound, with AWESOME bass output for speakers without any sort of amplification.
I also have the stock sound system (non audiophile). It is OK but sounds a little flat. Do the Pioneer's make a big difference?? ... Particularly in the base. The current system just doesn't have the depth.
My other vehicle is an Infinity with the Bose system. I assume part of my problem is simply I am used to the other system. It is very good.
Did you replace them yourself? How involved was it? How did you get the door apart? Where did you start?
The stock speakers are papercone - rated at 25 watts rms. I replaced them with a two way system from infinity - 5x7 I believe. got them from Circuit City off the shelf - they will know your truck model and will reference the odd speaker size. These are slightly smaller but when I replaced the stockers - they fit right inside the stock door PERFECTLY.
Then, I put a custom sub box under the rear seat and an amp to push it - while keeping the stock head unit - more power than you will ever need - JT.
I just got the digital camera for christmas - havent figured it out yet!!! But until then, I ordered a custom under the rear seat box from music moose audio located at http://www.musicmooseaudio.com/. They have a great - perfect fitting sub box. Got two 10 inch subs for the back under the seat (matched the interior color very well too. They also had the subs on sale from music moose - $99 a PAIR. They are dual voice and have like 70 oz magnets on them - JT.
jimshipp don't let all these #'s confuse you. You have been told correct w/ 6x8's / 5x7's fitting our vehicle's. The 6x8 & 5x7 size speakers will do the job because they fit. So if you haven't found the 6x8's go back out & look for 5x7's
Good luck & if you have any ?'s let me know & I'll gladly try
Have not installed them since I just recieved them the other day. As you know Kappa is the top of the line speaker from Infinity. While researching I have seen nothing but positive comments. Based on comments the Kappas are very well suited for amping at a later date if you so want. Since the price was right I couldn't turn them down. My other vehicles have Boston Acoustics which I really would like, but not in this price range. So what the heck I decided to go for it.
