    What's the mounting depth? You will most likely need spacers.

    here are the Install Dimensions I found from there site. If a spacer is needed what does it consist of.
    plk db525 5 1/4"
    top mount 2-33/125" (5.75cm)
    bottom mount 2-421/1000" (6.15cm)
    driver cut out dia. 4-13/20" (11.81cm)

    plk ex365 6.5"

    top mount 2-1/16" (5.24cm)

    bottom mount 2-5/16" (5.87cm)

    driver cut out dia 5-1/4" (13.34cm)

    again any info would be helpfull because I would really like to get these speakers.

    According to this..
    You need spacers.
    A spacer is just something plastic or wooden to keep the window from hitting the speaker driver when you roll it down. Look in that link, you'll see what I mean.

    The only speakers I know of that don't need spacers are MB Quarts.

    They'll fit with a 3/4" spacer. I have Polk/momo's in the front doors which are MASSIVE and I got them to fit using a spacer. If you're having trouble, take the back part of the speaker off.
