    I tried Crutchfield and they don't list an STI, only a WRX. It says 5.25 front/4 rear. I went to Tweeter last week and they said it had 6.5" all the way around according to their system. I wanted to order the speakers online to save some $$$ but I want to make sure I get the right size!

    How do you measure? I've never installed speakers before. That would mean I'd have to take apart the door twice too, once to measure, and once to install them. Easier to ask people who already know.

    This company called Innovative Automotive has a kit for the 2004 (which I bought) that makes it waaaaay easier to install aftermarket speakers. Here's the link:

    http://www.iaperformance.com/product...roducts_id=247

    The fronts are 6.5" and the rears are 5.25". If you get the kit, it comes with everything you need to mount any kind of aftermarket speakers in there. Hope this helps!

    6 1/2" in the front and 4" fill for a little fill here. The thing you have to watch for is front speaker depth. There isn't much.

    That kit sounds like the cat's pajamas. Well worth it compared to the work I did back in the summer of 2003.

    I needed spacers with my front speakers. You pretty much will need them with 98% of all aftermarket speakers.

    Well I had spacers put in with the new speakers but the woofers are hitting the doors. The only solution I can think of is to cut a hole in the door panel and put on the speaker covers. Any other ideas?

    +1 for these. They are great. They have a compatability chart on their site too. I also sawzalled the rear deck and put in 5.25" Infinity Kappas. Some midbass speakers would be good in the reardeck with the whole trunk to resonate.

    That kit I posted about includes door panel spacers so that the door is farther away from the speaker. This helps to prevent the woofer from hitting the inside of the panel so no annoying rattles! You can also trim the ring inside of the door panel which will help as well.

    The 2004 STi did not come with speakers installed. A kit for the STi would have those extra stock brackets and mounts. If your WRX has stock speakers you will have those extra bits. The doors are the same.
