Here's the deal, I have some Mach5 mli65 that i was going to put into the doors. But then today i discovered that it won't fit because the hole is basically too small and the frame gets caught.

So now i need new mids(unless someone can tell me how to fit them without hacking up the doors) and they have to be pretty shallow or have a small enough frame so that it can squeeze through the door. Budget is about 100 bux a pair and i'm looking for decent midbass, but door is deadened so i should be good :D

i hear your car is already hacked up :p:

I took a jigsaw to my bro's Acura TSX. it felt good, especially when his Mach 5 MLi6 fit like a charm afterwards.

bah, it's not that bad :crap:


i might do it, but i'm weighing my options. What blade did you use to hack it up though?

I jsut went to HD and picked up some Metal cutting blades for my jigsaw. I had to use about 3 blades because 2 broke during the process.

we'll see, i might try it, have to take off some of the deadener off first though :crap:

I don't think you'll need to. try cutting w/ the deadener first and see how it goes.

Are you using any kind of baffle/spacer between the speaker and the door frame?? If not, use a 3/4" MDF baffle, and that will probably solve your problems.

already using the 3/4" MDF spacer, the frame hits way before that. I'll probably try the hack job first before trying to buy new mids. Wish me luck guys.

Hertz Space series is the shallowest mids available.

C Mass Neo mids are pretty "thin" [QUOTE=dragnix;4184912]also about the most expensive one :crap:

Mids-$36
Deadener-$130 for the roll
Metal cutting Jigsaw blade-$12
Knowing that you cut the door up without ******* up your car-priceless

nope, too busy to take pix, and really didn't have any cameras. But it's good enough, no one looks behind the panels anyway :D
