When choosing the right speakers for you & your ride here are some tips/help to make things go a little easier.

The higher power rating the speaker has, generally means that the magnet on the back will be larger. therfore, when fitting to the rear (over the old toyota stock ones) you may need a pair of these:-

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SA-007-6x9-Inch-Speaker-Spacers-6-x-9-Speaker-Adaptor_W0QQitemZ170429841425QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Cars_Parts_Vehicles_Terminals_Cabling_ET?hash=item27ae690011

This will keep the magnet clear of the seatbelt mechanism behind the trim. Also makes a great 'Armrest' for the rear passengers.

Please bear this in mind when choosing speakers for the front as well.

A good set of 6 X 9's should set you back around �50 per pair for good quality ones. If you are only paying �20 ish per pair don't use an external amp, as this will probably blow them when the volume is cranked-up.


please feel free to add your own tip's to this thread, im only speaking from experience with my old bus and other ICE that ive fitted. i do ICE installs for my friends and family.
