    slim mids???

    Here's the deal, I have some Mach5 mli65 that i was going to put into the doors. But then today i discovered that it won't fit because the hole is basically too small and the frame gets caught.

    So now i need new mids(unless someone can tell me how to fit them without hacking up the doors) and they have to be pretty shallow or have a small enough frame so that it can squeeze through the door. Budget is about 100 bux a pair and i'm looking for decent midbass, but door is deadened so i should be good

    Perhaps he was thinking:

    i hear your car is already hacked up

    I took a jigsaw to my bro's Acura TSX. it felt good, especially when his Mach 5 MLi6 fit like a charm afterwards.

    i might do it, but i'm weighing my options. What blade did you use to hack it up though?

    I jsut went to HD and picked up some Metal cutting blades for my jigsaw. I had to use about 3 blades because 2 broke during the process.

    I don't think you'll need to. try cutting w/ the deadener first and see how it goes.

    Are you using any kind of baffle/spacer between the speaker and the door frame?? If not, use a 3/4" MDF baffle, and that will probably solve your problems.
