    Has anyone fit 3" deep 6.5" speakers in their doors?

    I want to get started on installing my audio equipment and I was wondering for those of you that have bought spacers if you are running mid bass that are 3" deep? These 6.5 Universal Speaker Adapter Ring Set- Subaru 96-09, Saab 92x look to fit up to 2.95". And these Subaru Impreza 08+ Door Speaker Spacers - Interior Accessories don't say how deep but you have the option to go up to a 3/4" ring. Any help from someone that has gone through this already will be greatly appreciated.

    Go with the 3/4" and you'll have plenty of room. I'm using these with a 3/4" spacer:

    The problem I've run into is the woofer will hit the inside of the door panel if it has much travel and you don't have a sub to run your bass separately.

    Is the C: 3" the depth measurement?

    Yep.. my speakers fit fine depth wise, but with the spacers the cone surround would make contact with the door panel. I ended up taking a utility knife to my door panel and was able to remove just enough material to alleviate the problem.

    Do you have these setup in the back doors? And what are you running them with? Did you take a look at the Kicker 6.5" shallow mounts as well before deciding on the Daytons?

    They are going in the front doors. A member from nasioc made me some spacers to the CDT specs for the es-620. They will be powered with a old school kicker zr360.

    Why would you run those in the back doors? Run good speakers in the front doors and filler speakers in the rear. You have less space in the rears so unless you're prepared to chop a hole through your door panel so the woofer can travel enough, it isn't going to work.

    Or better yet don't run any speakers in the rear.

    That's why I wanted to run these in the back as a filler for some mid bass and run some better coaxial or components in the front, so I take it that these will be too deep for the back doors even with a spacer?
