Why not 6.5s? They will fit into them 5x7 holes. ;)

ummm 6.5 > 5 ... itd take some cutting plus the mounting depth isnt exactly the greatest

hence why we used the neo motor

they work pretty well... the deadening on the back of them helped alot

also i used weather strippign to help seal the speaker to the plate and the plate to the car

How much did those plates run you? And what model CDTs were those?

Did they have decent mid bass?

P.S.: Only asking because I'm looking for some new speakers in the front.

i think the comp set was like 150 shipped.. maybe 250 not real sure...

have to ask somebody else about midbass... i think it sounds good, but thats about as far as my sq judging skills goes
