Default Replacing speakers in a 2002 Land Cruiser

Replacing speakers in a 2002 Land Cruiser.

I saw this article which... gets me started but I was hoping I could find a guru here that has experience with Land Cruisers or similar vehicles that could recommend replacement speakers. http://tlcfaq.com/main/2012/10/replacing-your-audio-system-overview

I want to replace all the speakers. Not sure about the budget but maybe in the $200 range for everything? Also not sure about used but I would consider it if it's a good bang for the buck and I can be convinced that they aren't too ragged out.

Info from article:
  • Speakers: 7 (front doors have 1″ tweeter and 6.5″ woofer, rear doors 6.5″ full range, Subwoofer has one 6″ driver in custom cabinet.
  • Amplifier: 300 watts (maximum output)
Looking for spec guidance and/or specific drivers.


Thanks in advance

I can't offer any specifics. Many times it's better to go to a forum that's dedicated to your particular vehicle when you're asking for suggestions.

If you're looking for speaker advice, especially if there is a limited budget, it's generally best to go listen to them at local retail outlets. Specs don't tell you much about speakers. Considering that sound quality is subjective makes it more important that you listen to the speakers.

Take a CD and flash drive when you go so that you have the same reference material for all speakers. Tell the salesman to set bass and treble flat and the loudness contour and equalization off so that you have the same equalization from one head unit to another.
