Every time I try to reinstall these mids/tweeters, I just mess up my door panel more and more. I have been trying to get this install to look good for a couple months and it still doesn't look good, although structurally, I am much better than I was.

What I am looking for in a rather shallow coaxial or braxial mounted componet set. (Although I think braxial is more of a CDT term....I think "tweeter intergrated is the better term)

My issue is depth. I only have maybe 60MM to work with. I am also thinking of going coaxial on the dash if I got coaxial on the door. Size of the door is a 6.5"

Budget is $500-$600 (for both or one).

Any good suggestions?

Whats the maximum depth before like hitting the window or the door itself

It hits the window track at roughly 60MM if I use a spacer.

Are either of these close to what you are looking for?
Beware tho the second set is a bit pricey

Thats not too much room, but heres some good coaxials where depth shouldnt be a problem

Infinity Ref series coaxial depth is 1 7/8"

Polk db series coaxial, shallow mount is 2"

If you get 4 speakers, get a nice 4ch amp and both of those speakers will sound good

I am heavily leaning towards those morels. I think they may end up being too deep as well. It will be close.

The bostons are too deep. I already looked.

I am really iffy on the infinities, however I do know they will fit.

I have a real nice amp already. I will be stepping down from the Rainbow Profi series....I don't really want to jump off a cliff, so to speak.

oo i see, then i would lean towards the Morels

and those Infinitys, theyre the new 07 model, and i have the 06 model, and midbass increased on the 07s, and midbass usually is a lack on Infinity speakers, but IMO it got a lil better, but theyre still crystal clear with smooth crisp sound, at a good price, but i think Morels would be better

I will get with Don for pricing and to see if he has an better suggestions.

I was thinking....ovations in the door, integras in the dash...

yea the morels state 61mm mounting depth maybe you can shim it out with a small ring if you can get it to fit

if you wanted to stay rainbow:

43mm mounting depth. Their not coaxil's though. I'm sure you could probably mount them close or find a tweeter mounter thingy.

Any links? Who sells them?

I got a little bit of room...If I make a ring and adjust the window track a bit, I should be able to get them to fit. The major issue is how the fit in the little plastic thing. I kind of have to keep it because it is at a good angle for the door panel and hard to reproduce using mdf.

Looked at those. I'd still have to mount the tweeter somewhere...and that is where my skills lack. Whenever I have to modify, it doesn't ever look very good. I messed up the door by moving it around and getting it scuffed up. It isn't that bad where I actually did the modification.

All you need to do is use some aluminum strapping and place the tweet dead center of the mid...wont it be conceiled by the door panel anyways?

Yeah, I can't do it with the cal27.

Wouldn't the excursion of the mid hit the strapping.

That would work if I could pull it off as the door panel is concave, which would facilitate such an install.

That straping is so soft that you can contour it easily around the surround leaving enough clearance.

You could use a Cal25 or cal25titan as they are more compact....cal25titan would actually be a good choice being it would be trapped behind a door panel grill and should get you the extension you need.

I will consider pairing the x-line...maybe

You will prolly get a PM concerning the matter in a couple minutes or so.

Does anyone have any experience with the Morel Integra XO vs. the normal Integra?

Is it just the external crossover that is different?
