    need help with mounting issue (mids in door)

    Alright, I Just finished purchasing a nice pair of boston acoustic rally components. I got them at a really good price and didnt really care to look about the mounting depth. So naturally when I get them, they dont fit in the door when the windows are down. The car is a 1990 honda accord.

    What is the best way to fit those suckers in the same spot, cause kickpanels are out of the question. Would just mounting a piece of mdf there work?

    an MDF spacer ring would work

    But does the ring go under the pannel or over the pannel?

    under, unless you want to cut a hole in the door, and fiberglass the panel to make it not look like ***.

    Re: need help with mounting issue (mids in door)

    In my car The doors have factory cutout for 5 1/4's in the framing but there arent any holes in the pannel itself.

    this is what the framing looks like(not mine but its identical)
    http://memimage.cardomain.com/member...73_33_full.jpg

    and I saw a guy who put a set of 5 1/4 kenwood caoxials in there
    http://memimage.cardomain.com/member...3_108_full.jpg

    now the knwoods are listed as having a 2 1/16" mounting depth an I am worried that if I order my CDT CL-51's which are 2 1/2" That I wont have enough depth.


    So If I do have problems would putting say...A 1/2" mdf spacer between the framing and pannel work? Because I want them mounted the same was as that pic.
