Will 6.5's fit in my 5x7 stock location?

Recommended Posts

Im currently running referance 5x7/6x8's in my 1996 explorer and dont like them very much, so im looking to upgrade. The explorer calls for 5.25 round, but i was just wondering if i could fit 6.5's in there with no problem, i dont really want to do much cutting, if any at all.

Yes, I did it in my explorer.

 

take the 5x7 speaker, and trace around it, and where the screw holes are. Then, put a 6.5 on top of it, trace around it, and cut around the outside with a jigsaw. then cut out the middle with a jigsaw.

Get 1/4" - 3/4" MDF

Trace The 5x7" Speaker on the MDF

Then Center The 6.5" on the MDF

Cutout the hole..

Use 3/4 MDF because the window track is directly behind the speaker.

Would this cause problems putting the door panel back on?

Car stereo shops sell abs versions from Metra ...American International....Aamp...etc if you feel uncomfortable about making some...you should be able to pick up a pair for around $10.00 Just make sure your speakers fit :)

Can this be done in my grand am? My stock speakers are 4x6 and i wanna get some 5.25 components. Can i do the same thing to my opening?

The thing i would be worrying about is it clearing the door panel because its only a stock speaker grill attached to the door panel.
