    Deepest Door

    Everytime I try to buy a vehicle, the window track is right behind where the speaker would go. I am looking for vehicles that allow for depth of 3". I have no issue adding a mdf ring, but I don't want to cut into the door panel.

    Trucks or cars fine....not really into SUVs.

    Re: Deepest Door

    wow worst decision ever

    dont buy a car based on what size speaker opening/depth you have

    you can always add mdf spacers

    so if an 87 caprice was the only thing with 3" or more depth youd buy it over a newer car?

    i would agree unless he is just buying a car solely for audio, and he has others that he daily drives or whatever.

    I could see how this could be a componet in the overall decision making process.

    x2 If you are building a SQ competition car, it makes sense as something to consider

    It's funny how you'll go as far as to choose a car using car audio as a factor... BUT you won't go as far as cutting door panels...

    That's like half-*** hardcore

    Part... but a small part.

    More important things are comfortableness, how smooth it drives, etc.

    You can always get it to sound good later for a lot cheaper than it'd take to get the things listed above done.
