Default 2013 STX Scab speaker upgrade

Disclaimer: I am not an audio nut.... But I know the factory speakers are cheapos....

So I am looking for an EASY swap in upgrade... Crutchfield buyers rate these Sony's pretty highly, and this seems like an awesome deal from an Ebay seller..



Would just like to hear some thoughts that I am on the right or wrong track....

Thank yoy

Sony speakers don't have a very good rep with our trucks, I can't elaborate because I don't have them, just what I have observed from others experiences.


I have Polk Audio DB571 in all 4 doors and that was a very nice upgrade by itself from stock.

Agreed. Polk or Infinity for the doors. All are equally simple to install.

If you want to make a HUGE difference in the sound system get an oem Kicker sub, I did and WOW!!! Totally transforms the sound in the cab.

Where I got mine, cheapest on the market.

I've gone with Polk, Infiniti or Alpine in the past; all have been more than acceptable.

I like Alpine. Infinity speakers are too bright for me, and I don't have any experience with Polks. Rockford Fosgates are nice too, I have a pair in my 2004 and they sound great.
