This album covers installing Jensen XS1683 6×8 speakers into the rear of my truck. These speakers were suggested by my friend John Griggs as a low-cost replacement to the factory units. While they are the correct size, the install requires some modifications due to the way Ford designed the rear speakers.
The whole project took a little longer than I expected, but was well worth the effort. The Jensen has a swiveling tweeter assembly which I angled upward when I installed it. Overall, the new front and rear speakers have made the stock CD player sound much better. The speakers are more efficient than the stock units, so you get better sound at less volume. For $40 at Wal-Mart, you can’t find a better way to clear up the sound quality of your stereo.
