    Need shallow 6.5 components

    I really really want to keep the image dynamics ctx 6.5 comp. that I currently have. What I dont understand is that bestbuy and crutchfield say that my car (2001 chevy s10 blaizer 4 door) that my car is capable of a 3in speaker. The ctx's say they are 2.75in mountin depth but i measured them and they are actually 3in height, so shouldn't that fit on the door pannels of my vehicle? Im not the one doing the work, I have someone doing it for me since im not capable of doing it. Any thoughts/tips?




    The car is a 2001 chevy blazer four door equiped with bose by factory

    I purchased some 6.5 image dynamics ctx components and the mounting depth is to tall, they hit the metal window braket. I need some components that are 2 in mounting depth so it can they can clear, The components have to be at the $200 dollar range and have to be from this website http://www.woofersetc.com/ Since
    I will be exchanging. They have to be 2ohm unless the amp can power the 4ohm component. My amp puts out 125 x2 at 2 ohm and 80 x2 at 4ohm and my amp is a cadence xa 125.2. Thanks alot

    80 @ 4 isn't bad. So you don't have to restrict yourself the the 2 ohms.

    I had an s-10, I can try to help. Are you using existing baffle or making one?

    I'd look into the Diamond Audio ones...some of them are quite shallow. Also, the morel coaxials are shallow.

    You are looking in the 55-58mm in depth.
    That **** ***** so bad...I hate that ****.

    Maybe the PG RSD's? I dunno their depth.

    You might be able to sell them here and go with nice shallow speakers such as hertz space or cmass...both over your budget, but very fine products.
