    Speakers for front doors

    I have been trying to learn about speaker install in the front doors of a 2004 and what sounds best and have been doing a lot of reading about it.
    Is my understanding correct in that there are no speakers that will fit directly into the front doors? If so, what is the reasoning behind this, to my knowledge this is not common in cars.
    Thanks in advance

    I think the issue is depth, but I could be wrong...

    Im sure there are speakers out there that will fit. But in my experience with this stuff, most speakers usually have some kind of mounting kit, or hardware that comes with it.
    It is very common when upgrading to an aftermarket setup that you will need spacers or brackets. Which are easy to find at caraudio stores.

    There are a bunch of people here that have upgraded their speakers without much of a hassle. Search around, Im sure you'll find something that'll work for you

    I just ordered some spacers from iaperformance.com that will adapt to fit just about any set of either 5 1/4" or 6 1/2" speakers.

    You might want to check that out. I've looked around the forums and people have had good things to say about them.

    I have to use some 1/2" spacers or so to shoehorn the 6.5" Boston Accoustics Pro Series component speakers in the front. At the time on install I didn't have the tools to make the spacer so I flush mounted it - the front windows won't go down all the way, but I'm rather used to that after the 1990 Legacy and 1987 GL-10.... Tall co-ax speakers may be too tall and too deep to mount well in the front doors.

    The rear co-ax speakers are too tall and the door panel won't snap back on in the corner. But, hey, the rear doors open about once a month when I pack the car for a road trip, so what do I care
