    High Quality Shallow Coaxials/ Intergrated Tweeter

    Every time I try to reinstall these mids/tweeters, I just mess up my door panel more and more. I have been trying to get this install to look good for a couple months and it still doesn't look good, although structurally, I am much better than I was.

    What I am looking for in a rather shallow coaxial or braxial mounted componet set. (Although I think braxial is more of a CDT term....I think "tweeter intergrated is the better term)

    My issue is depth. I only have maybe 60MM to work with. I am also thinking of going coaxial on the dash if I got coaxial on the door. Size of the door is a 6.5"

    Budget is $500-$600 (for both or one).

    Any good suggestions?

    It hits the window track at roughly 60MM if I use a spacer.

    Are either of these close to what you are looking for?
    Beware tho the second set is a bit pricey

    Re: High Quality Shallow Coaxials/ Intergrated Tweeter

    Thats not too much room, but heres some good coaxials where depth shouldnt be a problem

    Infinity Ref series coaxial depth is 1 7/8"
    http://sonicelectronix.com/item_9271...nce+6022i.html

    Polk db series coaxial, shallow mount is 2"
    http://sonicelectronix.com/item_9110...io+db651s.html

    If you get 4 speakers, get a nice 4ch amp and both of those speakers will sound good

    Re: High Quality Shallow Coaxials/ Intergrated Tweeter

    I am heavily leaning towards those morels. I think they may end up being too deep as well. It will be close.

    The bostons are too deep. I already looked.

    I am really iffy on the infinities, however I do know they will fit.

    I have a real nice amp already. I will be stepping down from the Rainbow Profi series....I don't really want to jump off a cliff, so to speak.

    Re: High Quality Shallow Coaxials/ Intergrated Tweeter

    oo i see, then i would lean towards the Morels

    and those Infinitys, theyre the new 07 model, and i have the 06 model, and midbass increased on the 07s, and midbass usually is a lack on Infinity speakers, but IMO it got a lil better, but theyre still crystal clear with smooth crisp sound, at a good price, but i think Morels would be better

    yea the morels state 61mm mounting depth maybe you can shim it out with a small ring if you can get it to fit

    43mm mounting depth. Their not coaxil's though. I'm sure you could probably mount them close or find a tweeter mounter thingy.

    I got a little bit of room...If I make a ring and adjust the window track a bit, I should be able to get them to fit. The major issue is how the fit in the little plastic thing. I kind of have to keep it because it is at a good angle for the door panel and hard to reproduce using mdf.

    Looked at those. I'd still have to mount the tweeter somewhere...and that is where my skills lack. Whenever I have to modify, it doesn't ever look very good. I messed up the door by moving it around and getting it scuffed up. It isn't that bad where I actually did the modification.

    Re: High Quality Shallow Coaxials/ Intergrated Tweeter

    All you need to do is use some aluminum strapping and place the tweet dead center of the mid...wont it be conceiled by the door panel anyways?

    Yeah, I can't do it with the cal27.

    Wouldn't the excursion of the mid hit the strapping.

    That would work if I could pull it off as the door panel is concave, which would facilitate such an install.
