I have a pair of The Elemental Designs EDI 6500s:

However, they don't fit my doors! I have an absolute maximum mounting depth of 2.5 inches. I'll be running the components off of a nine.2:

It won't be easy to sell the 6500s since one of the frames on a mid is cracked. It doesn't effect the performance though. Because of this, I would like to know if it is okay to just look for a good mid that will fit my door. I don't want to ***** can my crossovers and tweeters.

What are some medium to high quality mids that will work for me? (or something in the realm of the 6500s) Don't worry about price. I want to see what my options are.

I heard some Focal 165Vslims with the yellow cone and I liked them. The only problem is they were $540 at the car audio shop I go to. The salesman I spoke with said he would cut me a deal for $450, but that isn't set in stone.

why not just make a ring/spacer to mount the speaker on?

2.5" is the max depth with a spacer without having to make/modify my door panels. I don't have the skill to make decent door panels.

Have any of you guys installed deep mids in the factory Tacoma locations? If I build out with MDF rings, I need to cut a hole in the door panel. Any ideas on how to not make it look like crap?

I'd really like to use the EDI's if I can and I don't want to do kicks.
