    Default Replacing stock 6x9s in 07 Tundra

    Ive decided to upgrade the stock speakers in my truck. Im looking at going with the Polk db691s powered off of a Pioneer Avic Z2. I know that our trucks have 6x9s stock so why do I need to purchase adapter plates for them? Also where can I purchase these adapter plates to make the speakers fit? Thanks in advance everyone.

    The adapter plate is needed if you want to change out your stock 6x9's for 6 1/2" components. Its basically a plastic plate that has screw holes to fit the stock locations, but they have cut outs for 6 1/2" speakers. You can make your own out of MDF. I bought the Scosche kit off ebay for pretty cheap. ebay links are frowned upon here but do a search there for Scosche kit #SAT69

    I saw the ones you speak of but I also saw some kits on EBAY for 6x9s. It says they gives you more clearance so the speakers will clear. Are these even needed or can I just bolt in the 6x9s in the stock location with no adapters?

    You need the adapter plates because they space the speaker off the door. Without them there is very little depth. Also, the speaker hole is not 6X9, it is much larger, you need the adapter to make up the space.

    You can also just cut the stock speakers out of the adapter they use from the factory. This works well for 6x9 replacements. Just screw it in to the plastic a 3 1/4" deep speaker will fit with this set up.

    How many spacers did you use on the adapter to space it off the door some? If you use to many it will hit the inner panel and not enough could let the window or something hit it?

    It does hit the door panel, the door panel also didn't snap all the way down. I could have dremeled out the honeycomb on it but didn't bother. If you don't use enough spacers, it will hit the window track. I don't think you can install them where the window will hit them (but I don't know for sure.)

    I trimmed the door panel and it snaps down completely. I bought my adaptors off Ebay but I had to add to them in order for my infinity kappa 6X9s to fit.

    Also remember our doors are what they call Wet doors meaning water will run inside them from the window edge. Be sure to protect your speakers from this water.

    I used db690's like asianflava did. I also used the stock adapter. I just cut the stock speaker out and screwed in the polks right on top. I then trimmed out all the honeycomb behind the door panel speaker grill. This way, I kept the factory water guard over the speaker and there was plenty of clearance for the magnet. did not have to space out the window track either.

    So it looks like the ebay adapters do have the water guards attached? Has anyone found a way to mount the 6x9's without trimming? Do you have to trim with the 6.5" adapter?

    Crutchfield: Car Audio, Home Theater, Speakers, Home Electronics sells the adapters and the reason we need them is because the factory speakers are 6x9 but are not a traditional shape in regards to how they mount. The brackets allow you to put a traditionally shaped 6x9 mounted speaker in the doors.

    Good Luck!

    I can't find the 6x9 adapter, but I can find the 6.5" adapter. Maybe thats because the 6x9 adpaters don't fit without cutting the doors!

    no they should fit with zero cuting. I ordered some off of ebay and they came in today. Do a search on ebay under tundra speaker adapter and they should come up. Cant tell you how they fit yet because my speakers arent here yet.

    Were you implying that the 6x9 adapters should fit without cutting or the 6.5"? From what I have seen on the forums, 6x9 adapters hit the door panel and the door needs to be trimmed with a dremel tool on the inside in order to fit properly. I just want to do my homework before I go through the trouble. Definitely do NOT want to cut my brand new door panels if I can avoid it! Use3vtec - Let us know how your install goes and take some pictures if you think about it.
