    If you get sufficently slim speakers youi can get 6.5" in the front though 5.25" will be an easier fit. In the rears 4" fit though you may be able to get 5.25" in there with some work. The rear deck would also be an option if your willing to do some modification, 5.25" or 6.5" will fit.

    from what i got, you dont want to do any modifications right? if you do, you can put larger speakers on the rear deck, which requires modification. i would just stick with 5.25 in the front and 4 in the rear. are you just going to replace the speakers? if you are going to put a whole system in, i would just leave the rear speakers stock. you would be suprised how much better the stockers will sound with some more power going to them, i was..

    Yes I agree if you dont want to modify anything then 5 1/4 for front and 4 in the back. None in decklid. It is reall not that hard to fit bigger speakers in. I just put 61/2 in the front on my wrx and it wasnt that difficult. Although is it not true that STi's dont have a stereo from the factory?

    i may put the polk momo 5.25 component kit in the front doors and some sort of 4" in the rear door. I have seen that there are areas behind the back seats that look like they could fit a set of speakers (6x9?) but am not totally sure on that....

    thoughts?

    Yep. The rear deck is what its called. And yes people do that all the time. I will never do it tho. I think those polks would probably be pretty nice. I know that my polk momo 10s sound great!

    I will probably just do the front and rear doors first to see what it is like, then decide. selling my 10's (RF punch P2's) and one of the amps because I dont really want that big of a sound and I actually use the trunk from time to time.

    Yeah sometimes I feel that way. Its like if I ever want to use my trunk I cant cuz it either wont fit with the the subs in there or I would be afraid it would move around a puncture one.
    But if you just get some really good speaks and amplify em a little bit it should actually sound pretty good.

    turn your subs around man, they sound so much cleaner and you wont have to worry about them being puncured. sorry about spelling....im drunk. if you turn them around and put down the armrest thing, they hit so hard, atleast for me they do. for the job selling subarus, i would go down to the nearest dealership and ask them if they have any kob openings..
