I am wanting to do a system for my truck but I dont know what all to order because Ive never done this before. Ive searched and I still havent found anything. I want to have Infinity door speakers in the front and back, a Pioneer avh-4100 headunit, and either 2 10's or 1 12' RF sub. I just need to know how much to order, what size fittings, and other things that might be helpful.

Waste of money IMO on the back speakers, you cannot tell unless it is indeed a quad cab, more info on the truck would be nice: NBS? NNBS? ext cab? crew cab?

we werent saying they were a waste of money we are saying that having speakers in the rear doors depends on the application if its a waste or not

I disagree. I have them and have unhooked them and its a good difference. Without them, it sounds empty only hearing the fronts, but Im not an audio expert.

it also depends on the application some componet systems can capture full range sound very well

I think he will still be using the stock rear speakers. I believe they are just telling him to keep the rear stock and get a good set for the front.

Alright thanks for all the help guys. I am now getting ready to order my pioneer headunit and I want to make sure I get all the needed supplies to install it and have it fully functional. So other than the unit what do I need to order to have it properly installed?

and another probably stupid question, could I buy a subthump box for a single 10 and just cut the hole to make it fit a 12" sub? would it mess up the box or not? If I cant do that is there a single 12" sub box to fit under the seat of a NNBS extended cab? I can only find dual 12" boxes and single 10" boxes. Please help with this, thanks!

omg....do no such thing. never cut a 10 box to fit a 12, it will rape the air space, and considering the mounting depth, you probably couldn't fit a 12 in there anyway.

take the truck to a local shop, and get them to build you a 12" box this way you can be sure to have things right.

personal installs are really easy to screw something up, and your not really saving any money ordering a box online. (online generic box = $125-$250, custom box by a local shop will probably cost the same and be right air space for your sub)

just remember, having a awesome sub is only about 25% of the battle. A box and amp is what makes the system.

half the installs i see around here with 12s and 15s cramped up...I could take one 10 install it right and knock those 12s and 15s without a problem
