If they're door speakers then, IMO, make at least 5"/5-1/4"s fit...

If you get a fairly shallow mount speaker and can put an MDF spacer in you can probably get them to fit without cutting...

Those RS75s are not a good choice by themselves.

-They will have no bass
-They will handle very little power
-They need a lot of filtering to sound decent - the unfiltered response is a roller coaster that makes even Bose speakers look smooth
-The treble will be very directional - you'll get beaming

They have their uses, but IMO, this is not one of their better ones. They are more useful for computer speakers or as a midrange from, say, 500Hz up. I run 2 4" HiFi M4Ns in each of my DIY home speakers (MTMW config) and I have blown the M4Ns before, using them from like 400-up.

-Gonna be a long wait for a 4" driver with "bass"
- been running a pair ,100w each, 250hz 36db slope on the bottom wide open on the top for going on 4 months. nada problem one
-it's pretty amazing to see the response curve in a car vs. the printed free aired specs
-The op is still hasn't posted where the mounting location is.

the speakers are almost under the dash fireing towards your knees. and he is keeping his stock HU for now so this doesnt need to be anything super special.

So absolutely, definitely not the RS75s. A tweeter is an absolute necessity.

I would tell him to go with either of those in your original post. Spending more for what he is after would be a waste of money and good speakers :)

Yeah, unless he wants to improve on the positioning, putting good speakers in that sort of location is indeed a waste.

Dear Toyota: SHAME ON YOU. Not that I have ever liked you, anyway.

yeah he doesnt really care too much, just wants something better than the stock paper speakers that are going out.
