    Ford escort '99.... Door sizes?

    I have diamond d6 components and a ford escort '99.

    Today I finally figured out how to stick speaker wire into my door without drilling and all of that nonsense and hvae it not look tacky with a wire sticking out of nowhere.

    Then I tried sticking my 6.5 mids in.. adn they dont fit. They just do not fit in the hole at all, one side goes in, while the other side will be sticking out. Sound advice said the doors may be 5 1/4" (but he pulled that out of th etop of his head afte rsome thought) .. but circuit city and some car fitment guides say 6.5, along with sonic electronix.

    If my doors are 6.5, why is it that my 6.5 components wont fit in my doors?

    oh thast right, my door panel's pretty much offer MAYBE a quarter inch more of space before it gets really tight with the speaker. and i'd probably need a half inch of MDF to make it fit properly.

    Re: Ford escort '99.... Door sizes?

    most aftermarket speakers are "oversized" and won't fit most stock locations. that's partially why people build kicks, doorpods, or use mdf rings on the stock locations. (other reasons for those are various, not going into detail). if you can, just use an mdf ring/spacer. if not, then look into shallow mount speakers.
