Yes how do you convert a 5x7 hole to a 6.5" hole. I was wondering how much cutting is required.

also what do you guys think of these?


i was gonna get these and another pair of comps?

There's a good write up on how to make baffles so you can fit 6.5's in a 5x7 opening.

Those CDT's are pretty sweet. Smooth tweets, not harsh at all.

Have fun! :)

Watch your power with the CL's since the crossover is the lower end and they don't handle as much power as the 480 or above. Also make sure its the 1in tweeter and not the 3/4in. big difference in sound.

What's your budget?

I would thoroughly investigate some other options as far as components are concerned :)

I have a Mazda with stock 5x7 holes, I made a baffle and mounted 6.5s in it, very easy to do, and definately worth it.

5x7's ****, there are a lot more options when buying 6.5s

and oh yea, you won't be running 5x7s
