View Full Version : Will a 5 1/4'' speaker fit in a 4''x6'' area?

I'm thinking of trying out the Rsd's and want to fit them in a 4x6 hole in my doors, WITHOUT cutting any metal. I know I'm going to have to make a MDF baffle anyway, but has anyone here done this? I have a 04' Cavalier, and I can't stand these new 4x6 Pioneers I just put in.

the average cut-out dimension for 5 1/4"s is only 4 1/2", even with a 1/2" MDF with baffle you could easily do it. but you would only need to trim 1/4" off each side of the opening if you didnt use a baffle.

So the magnet and basket should fit in the opening fine?

It wouldn't fit in my car (2004 Sunfire) because the magnet was hitting the back of the door. I have the Rockford Power series 6.5's. There is a company on Ebay that sell's 4x6 to 6.5 Adapter plates for $20 if you can't make them yourself or don't have anyone to make them for you.
