    Speakers too big for door - Options

    I bought a pair of ID CXS62 Speakers and they're too large for the door. The magnet is just too large for the metal opening. In order to make them fit I'd either have to cut a larger opening in the door frame or make a huge baffle

    Cutting would probably be the easiest & best option cosmetically speaking. Does anyone have experience cutting into the metal of a door panel? Will i have any issues with the door's air bag? What tools would you recommend?

    If I were cutting into my door panel I would use like a sawzall. I ran into this problem in my civic and just made some mdf rings and bolted them to the metal to give it a little more mounting depth. Just make sure your speaker isn't going to be hitting the inside of your door panel.

    cut the metal in the doors with a air body saw (looks like a mini sawzall) i make my baffle rings for doors out of incerta, a type of abs plastic. wood does not belong in your doors!

    Not sure if this method would work for me. The speaker grills are not all that solid in my car. I wouldn't trust them to hold all that weight and not vibrate like crazy
