    This MOD is about 4runner 5th Gen indash Tweeter speaker repalcement technique to improve your sound quality . Toyota added worse speakers in 4runner. Before replacing, I recommend replacing these front tweeters first and if you are not satisfied with the sound quality, then spend money and replace the rest of them .

    A thread like this ran some time back. Quite a few members replaced their dash speakers with the Subaru Kickers, including me. I am quite satisfied with the results. Many others, however, chose a different route with a 3-way similarly sized speaker that they said sounds much better, but requires some fabrication of the mounting bracket. I chose plug and play like the OP.

    I replaced with Infinity Reference speakers and it was an awesome upgrade.

    Mounting bracket fab was easy.

    Did you also switched out the rest of the speakers on the 4Runner or you only switched out the dash tweeters?

    Just the dash speakers.

    After a slight adjustment to the balance (from the head unit), everything sounded great.

    I'm not some crazy audiophile so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    Do the factory tweeters have a built in bass blocker on the adapter plug? The little black capacitor? If I reuse these from another set of Tacoma tweeters I had will I need a bass blocker or is it built in?
