Cool

i was wondering if anyone could tell me the size of the back speakers if they are
6 x 8's or 6 x 9's because i recently installed and new cd player and an amp and some subs and it sounds really nice but my back speakers can't really hadle the bass. if anyone can tell me that would be great!!

I can second that. Though i did fit 6x9's in my rear deck .

Just cut about a inch into the medal and bent it outta the way. Couldnt use the factory hole though. But all in all it wasnt hard.

No they're 6 X 8 stock. 5 X 7 will easily fit in the hole so that's an alternative.

will any 5x7's fit? crutchfield threw me off with their dumb "what fits" feature...according to them, some 5x7's fit but some don't...

It depends on the layout of the 5x7 and what the basket is like, but I'd say that it'd be a safe bet that any 5x7 or 6x8 will fit back there. I have 5x7's, although I'd like to upgrade to a set of 6x9's. With the Gen III, you can either top mount 5x7/6x8's, or you can bottom mount a set of 6x9's (or cut the rear deck). IIRC, with the Gen IV, you can't bottom mount 6x9's because of some stuff being in the way.

Also, the front door speakers have the same size opening, although you'd be hard pressed to fit a 6x9 speaker in there, nor would you want to.

5x7 and 6x8 use the same mounting holes. They are essentially interchangeable.

I prefer 6x8's (more surface area) than the 5x7's. I also want to install 6x9's in the rear at some point.

only certain brands of 5x7's will have the bracket hole to fit in a 6x8 slot, be very wary of this,

that is true... i should have clarified.... but most brands use the elongated hole tabs to mount the 5x7's in 6x8 holes.... and Pioneer sells a 6x8 desgined specifically for Ford and Mazda.
