Hey, does anyone have any recommendations on 6.5's that are closer to 6.25? Or 6's that are closer to 6.25? I keep looking, but so few companies actually publish this info.

My doors have speaker recesses about 6.25" wide, 5.5" cutout, and not much room behind the grilles for tall surrounds.

I bought some Rainbow Kick mids, looked like just the ticket, but they're a full 6.5 and that's more cutting than I want to do in the door panels.

KEF 6.5's fit just fine, but one has a bad VC, and I'm having a hard time finding a replacement.

They'll be seeing 50-80 watts RMS, depending on which amp I decide to use.

Many thanks, bt

Well there is always MDF rings but of cores clearance is the issue and than there is cutting the door up a little which is what I did. Other than that I do not know what to suggest.

It's a rare car, 415 produced this year. Parts are difficult and expensive.

Cutting up the car is not really an option I'd like to pursue, if suitable speakers are available.

Thanks, bt
