    help on speaker sizes

    ive got a 94 accord and need to find 6 1/2 or 5 1/4 speakers that are good quality and are 2 inches or less deep....checked the cdt's but they are too big....anything that will provide good midbass and soft clean highs???

    You could build an MDF mounting ring for the speakers, so mounting depth wouldn't matter. That would be my suggestion.

    If you want a 2" top mount depth, look at 5.25" for normal speakers. Crutchfield comparator or somethign like that. I recycled my old vega 502's into the 6.75" door holes (because of a 2" mount depth problem). Be sure you look at top vs bottom mount as well.
