I installed 5" Focal components. I put the tweeters in the unused
location in the door. For the woofers I add to cut off one of the four
mounting ears and then open up the original opening in the door panel.
Of course, I did not use the Bose waveguide setup. I then covered the
area around the speaker with Dynamat. I retained the stock Bose grilles
so every thing looks stock. I had to build brackets to mount the
crossovers in the door.

I have Focal 130's in the front with Focal Polyglass 690 CV in the rear
under the Bose covers. An Alpine 9813 deck and an Alpine CHA-S634 CD
changer mounted in the truck where the phone module was. I have an Xtant
A4004T amp mounted on the trunk panel between the trunk and the

And IMHO the system kicks any Bose's butt plus with MP3's I can carry
over a 1000 tracks.

BTDT, Steve - but no template available, sorry!

Mounted the in there best I could and filled them with some foam type
stuff (tape, IIRC).  I think I used a 4" component set, but I'd have to
check. Been a while... The stock grills will clear the new speakers, but
it was a bit tight putting them back together,  I can shoot you a couple
pics of list, if you like.
