    speaker fitting problem

    i have a 1997 Chevy Blazer with two 6.5" speakers in the back and two 6.5" speakers in the front. i'm looking to replace my front speakers with Alpine Type-R Components...but theres a problem...Alpines website says that they are 6.5" and/or 6 3/4" speakers and when i put my car in Crutchfields speaker fitting guide they say they wont fit...should i trust Crutchfields fitting guide??

    It's probably because they're too deep. Make sure the depth doesn't go in too far.

    Re: speaker fitting problem

    ill try to explain best as i can, if not ill do some searching for u, just let me know if it makes sense or not

    k without a spacer u jus screw the speaker onto the door, say ur window wont close needs the speaker out 1/2".

    then u would need 1/2' mdf

    make a circle like O (after u trace the speaker size onto the wood) so that u can screw ur speaker to this

    then u can have like a little lip, so theres 3/4" more than the speaker diamter, then screw it to the door
