I have a 96 grand am sedan. it has 4x6s in the front, but the speaker grille is around 6.5"

is it possible for me to either
a) mount mdf where the plastic mount is for the 4x6 and put 6.5's in there

or

b) mount 6.5's on the actual plastic door panel. obviously secured with mdf....how would the acoustics sound for something like this?

i really need midbass in the front, but i dont want to end up with speakers that i can't use for whatever reason.

as long as you got the clearence for the mounting depth B is definately possible. you could try cutting/sanding the mdf to angle it right to help the acoustics.

dude we're in the same boat...

I can tell you that you probably don't wanna mount them on the panel...

using some mdf as a spacer is your best bet after fiberglassin some kick panels. that's what I'm gonna do (once I get the mdf...). then when it gets warmer, gonna glass them kicks.

Ok I'm almost defniely doing option B (mounted in door panels)

is there anything i should look out for so i dont regret it? (vibrations, not enough support, just plain not working, etc)
