Hey Folks, have an '04 WRX Wagon
Purchased and had Best Buy install the Rockford Fosgate PS152
The guy used a 1" spacer, and said he couldn't get the speaker to mount right, saying the door was just too shallow. After 7 hours work, he says he was finally able to get the spacing right. Issue being that if he recessed the speaker, it would hit the glass from the window, and if he spaced it too much, it would hit the grill.
Take it home, there's bass vibration and buzzing. Take it back to BB, he puts some insulation around the speakers, which works for the driver's side, but not the right. He says they have nothing in stock (short of the smaller depth pioneer's) that will fit the door and that it's the same with the rear, things won't fit.
The Rockford's have a bottom depth of 2.2"
These Polk db6500 have a top depth of 2". Are they going to fit better? Is there any other option I have, speaker wise, for upgrades?
Edit: It appears the ones they gave me were the P162S, having a depth mount of 3", not 2.2". Makes alot more sense as to why the fittment wasn't right. Read somewhere else on this forum about depth having a max of 2.7"
