    Best shallow components?

    I've run into a dilemma. My car has limited space for door speakers so I'm in search for a well suited set. I need speakers that are 6.5 inch, great sound quality for listening to rock and country and runs at ~50watts. Budget is around 350 for a set

    what car do you have? also, making spacer rings out of mdf is a common solution.

    I drive a Subaru Wrx. Even with spacers there is still a small amount of room.

    JBL MS62C. They've gotten pretty good reviews. Those are the ones I am going to purchase when I finally get around to upgrading my front stage. I have a Legacy, so it's probably near the same mounting depth. You need 3/4" spacers.

    I remember someone mentioning that Kenwood Excelon XR-S17P speakers (slim mount) sounded pretty good. Under 2 inches top mounting depth.

    Amazon.com: Focal Access 165 A3 6.5-Inch 3-Way Component Speaker Kit: Car Electronics

    Would anyone say this is worth the price? Are these speakers any good? I dont have a problem shelling out the cash for these if the value is there.

    Re: Best shallow components?

    Well I feel stupid, I guess I assumed the 4 inch would make a good rear door speaker. After reading I looked at focal 165 a1 which is the 2 way set. Does anyone have an opinion on these? I've read that focal has "colorful" highs, how is the midbass on them?
