I had the db690's in my Dodge Ram 2500, powered by about 250 watts (80RMS - per channel) and they were unbelievable - seriously uneblievable! I am not easy to impress in such regard either. I'm likely to go the same route for the FJ doors, BUT, I got to thinking and perhaps now is a good time to really splurg and snag the MMC690 6 x 9 inch three way's - carbon fiber -> http://www.polkaudio.com/caraudio/products/mmc690

They look to be about a 1/4 " deeper, so I'm not sure they'll fit witout spacers. Anybody else look into this setup?

I'm also likely to go the bigboy route and snag the single enlosed JL W7 12" sub: http://mobile.jlaudio.com/products_enclosures.php?menu=5&prod_id=303 . It's be 5 second removeable for obvious reasons. Dang, this rig is starting to set me back.

If I were smart, I'd just hold off for something like this:

Wait for the stealth box. I had one in my Tundra and loved it. Never got in the way and you never had to take it out. What kind of price can you get for the polk 6X9's?

Thats only IF they decide to make one for the FJ. I wouldnt hold my breath. There are a bunch of vehicles that they never made one for that they probably should have.

If you get them from an Ebay store, they go around $95 after shipping. I actually went against my own advise and bought a pair of MB Quart. I just wanted to hear if there was a difference. probably a mistake to deviate from what was great already, but we'll see. About $140 after shipping is the best price I came by on the MB's

Those Carbon Fiber Polks appear to have the tweeter standing quite a ways from the speaker base... I'd be careful that it didn't rub against the grill. I suppose they do this to allow maximum woofer travel, but sometimes it can make mounting in a stock location difficult.

They look great though!

It would be easier to get a JL 8W6 and glass it in to what ever enclosure you would eant. Keep it out of the way. That box for the W7 would have to be huge to get ti to sound right. You would not have any room to carry any gear around at all.......

I ended up with the JL 12" 6v2 The JL enclosure was not too big, but I'll definitely have to remove it everytime I want to haul anything of size :(
