    Recently, I blew the front 2 stock speakers in my '02 Lib, wondering if anyone has their stock speakers they want to get rid of?

    You would be better off going to Pep Boys or Wal*Mart and buying replacements. They have OEM style, but, you an get better ones.

    If you want good bump, you will have to get an enclosure. I had a 4th order Bandpass enclosure w/400watt amp in my Avenger trunk, was VERY bumpy... Door speakers, even with long throw speakers, are not going to produce the deep & rich bass you want. Bandpass enclosures are about the best for the best bass.

    Mine was like that, but with THREE ports.

    The thing with bandpass enclosures, is though they sound great, and can most definitely ruin your ears; they require more power to drive the speakers in them, almost twice the amp power. The speakers are IN the enclosure, sealed behind Plexiglas. You only have the ports that are exposed. The amp must also have the cut-off, so that only 350Hz and below are sent to the speakers. I would maybe even go 250Hz and lower, some are adjustable. They sound just HORRIBLE if you try and run them without a crossover, or cut-off built into the amp. These bandpass enclosures are built for one thing only, and that's defining bass with the right amplifier.

    Do you have stock HU? By front two, do you mean front tweeters or door speakers, or do you have the basic sound system with 4 speakers only without tweeters.
    If you have only door speakers without tweets on the dash, just get a set of components, like infinity reference, comes with crossovers, you will be happy with them.
    If you don't want to spend $$, any 6 3/4" speaker will work, just unscrew, replace, screw back on.

    No, they are 6 3/4"
    You need adapter if you have 6 1/2 speakers without extended tabs.

    Ok, so I'm a little confused. I remember when I took mine out to inspect it said on the back that it was 6.5". Maybe they're is a difference with the Infinety system/stock. I'm pretty sure there wasn't a change in audio from an 04-05.



    Or, maybe I'm thinking Durango......

    I agree that you would most definately be better off purchasing a new set of drivers... You really don't want someones OEM speaks! The first thing I did when I got the Libby is get rid of all the stock stereo equipment. Pioneer HU and Boston acoustic drivers, sounds great. The only thing that I kept was the factory HU.
