    6.5 components = no go

    alright so I have a '92 Lexus SC300 (go figure)

    let me just tell you, this car is a nightmare to work on

    anyway, I bought a pair of 6.5" Diamond Audio hex series, stock speaker fit is a 4" - have talked to a few people and went to a shop, due to the location of speaker, fitting a 6.5" is near impossible

    I have also looked into fiberglass for pods but I still have the same problem



    any suggestions for a pair of 4" components?

    amp is rated at 200 x 2 @4ohm

    dude, your car looks like a nightmare. i still think you can fit some 6.5's in the kicks. you need to try yo make this work because you want be satisfied with a 4" component. you'll be playing your sub above a 100hz to cover the lack of midbass coming out of those 4' speakers. take a pic of your kick-panels and post it.

    How about a compromise.... 5.25"... I use that size anyway... they tend to have better off-axis dispersion and sound livelier... and you can get moderate midbass out of them... much better than a 4".

    maybe I can mount on the carpeted area below the stock speaker location?

    worried about making things look stock again

    Bottom of the doors is a good idea.

    Don't know why you are worried about stock look with all the mods you are making. Anyway, you could always leave a grill with matching grill cloth over it, or re-carpet the bottom at trade-in time.

    Agreed. Looks like enough room at the bottom of the door for you to fab a door pod for you speakers out of MDF and cover it in the same color vinyl thats in your car. Would not be too hard, and def sound a lot better than a set of 4" comps
