Renz0 is cool... so far.
6.5" won't fit my door, wow!

I red the owners and repair manual and even came on the forum to see recommendations on speakers. I bought a pair of Alpine's in 6.5" and they don't fit, rofl. My bad I didn't flip the vehicle's OEM adapter to see it's only 6".

Now - how can I fit those 6,5" into the door? Any futher drilling required? Adapters like 6.5" to 6" don't exist here, and I'm not skilled with any wood work, neither do I own any tools required for this job. Can anyone help me out?

Thanks.

ditch the plastic basket, use a foam gasket, or MDF ring and some sheet metal screws. if theyre type-r's theyll be too deep and you will need a 11 or 12mm thick MDF ring, but then the speaker surround touches the backside of the grill on the door card, theyre a tight fit. Other brands like run of the mill Pioneers just fit right in with a gasket and screws.
