Just picked up a 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera from an old lady--nice car.

I'm curious if anybody else on here has had experience with either custom enclosures or mounting 5.25 woofers in the doors.

As of right now, the only option I have is installing 3.5 speakers in the dash, which I doubt will give me the mid-range that I'd like. Not to mention I already own a set of Focal K2-Power 5.25 components I'd like to use.

If I can't get the Focals in, I was thinking about going this route:

Amazon.com: Infinity 4629CFP 180W (Peak) 4 x 6 -Inch Custom Fit Two-Way Plate Speakers (Pair): Car Electronics (http://www.amazon.com/Infinity-4629CFP-Custom-Two-Way-Speakers/dp/B001912A5W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1392793170&sr=8-2&keywords=4x6+plate+speakers)

I'll run them off of my Soundstream REF4.400 through an Alpine CDA-117

My car does not have the "Dimension" premium sound system, so the cutouts aren't in the doors. My understanding is that I can cut out the panels and mount 4x6 inch speakers in the lower doors.
I would think the plate speakers would add some decent mid-range, definitely more than the 3.5s.

Anybody have experience with these cars? Thanks.

Got a pic of your doors?.. you may be able to get a bigger speaker in there.

I don't have the 4x6 cutouts, but you can see how big they are. I also have the manual windows, so the crank goes where the power window switches are.
