Default Need CD changer and speaker help for truck .

A friend has a 94 F250 super cab . He wants a CD changer to hook to his stock ford radio . Would like 10-12 cd's .Also wants to put in some better speakers . does anybody know what size fits the front doors and the rear corner mounts in this truck ? Any input on the type of speaker would be great . He is very conservitive . May not use amp .

why does he want to keep his factory head unit? It can be donewith a FM Modulated unit. just about anybody that makes changers has that type of unit. I think that 5x7 inch speakers go in the doors, if not they are 6x8. it has been a while since I put a system in a ford truck. But anything can be done for the right amount of $$$$ It can be done easily for whatever he wants to spend

You can FM modulate it. However he will be happier with a new head unit. Uless he is worried about theft.

For speakers I am fairly sure you will have 6.5" rounds. That is what was in my old truck and also the new one.

Try a coax speaker. Speakers are personal preference deals so his best bet is to go to a store and listen to them all.

teh FM changer work but kind of suck.

I had one in my 750iL along with a a normal changer and a CD headunit (and 4 10" subwoofers and a host of other speakers).

If he only wants really basic tunes with no extra features isn;t really concerned with top notch sound quality and he doesn't plan on biulding up his stereo the FM unit should be fine. I think they are pretty cheap now too

Thanks guys . MOney is why he wants the stock head unit . Any CD changer brand names you think are good ,better and best ?

Jon , Are you sure about that 6.5's on the new Fords ? I think mine were smaller in the doors ?

Thanks

We make ANYTHING FIT!!!!

For the Cd Changer they often have packages with the head unit and changer. The cost will be rougly the same for the changer and the head unit. I like the Clarion stuff as it comes with a rotary volume knob that is definatly nice. They also have the smallest changers on the market. In a truck that can be important.

I have a pair of J&L Audio speakers in my doors in my F-350. Best sounding speakers I have found yet!
