View Full Version : 5x7 Options

I'm curious about 5X7's. I see Rainbow makes a set in their SLC line, which a have read on here that you can't beat Rainbows for SQ. I also see JL audio makes a set (XR570-CSI) which I have read are a very nice speaker. I have also seen people cut their door panels and fit a 6.5 in the 5x7's place. The problem I am having is I can't hear Rainbows, the JL's are no big deal I can hear them here in town, and I'm not sure I want to cut the door panels that are inside a new truck with less than 2000 miles. So I guess my question is, am I being silly for not wanting to cut up my door panels? If I decide to go with the 5x7's how do the JL's compare to Rainbows?

P.S. I listen to all kinds of music.

Honestly...Go for the round drivers. Minimal work to have better sound as its meant to be. As far as cutting..


On a brand new Infiniti when I bought it. Good sound sometimes has sacrifices. ;)

I agree with the above poster. I fit some 6.5in my explorer without cutting the panel. Clearance is somewhat an a problem but i made it work.
