Default speakers for my f150

I been waiting and waiting for 2 years to get speakers for my truck and finally its the perfect time to get them since I have free shipping, a $20 coupon, and free instruction/brackets available!

How are these speakers? Alpine SPS-500

My left speakers (both) are not working and my right are terrible, sometimes doesnt even play at its volume.

Is it coming with a 4x6 mounting kit? To my knowledge its either a 3x6 or 4x6 that comes stock

The f150 uses a 6x8 (5x7) speaker... So buy the right size, or adapt a 6.5", not a small 5.25".

My Thunderbird takes 6x8 speakers, the best 6x8 speakers, bar none, are the Boston SR80s. They are plate mounted component speakers rather than coaxials, kinda pricey but worth it.

I wouldnt say bar none.... but certainly a great drop in replacement.
