    speaker help

    what should i go for, for the front in my G?
    5.25 or 6.5? ive heard the window rail can foul the 6.5s. the 6.5s im thinking of going after have a depth of 70 mm or should i just go with 5.25s with an adapter plate which offer the same 80w rms?
    cheers

    6.5" are the ones you should go for. I have not had a problem with any of the speakers that I have tried in the G and the largest of these being 80mm. I currently have JL audio XR componenets and these have a mounting depth of 72mm and these popped in with no problems.

    Someone did post on here about problems with his Infinity speakers fouling the door card and being unable to mount them, but again I have not had problems with those speakers either.

    What speakers are you looking at using?

    Nice choice, they are very good speakers. A few on here have DLS. I might be mistaken but I think that SQ man is running DLS componets.

    re: speaker help

    BasilD, Is your Astra a 3dr or 5dr? And also were your standard front speakers 5.25" and you upgraded to 6.5"??

    I'm still trying to figure out why the bloody Infinitys wont fit when nearly everyone has fitted 6.5"s!!

    Cheers Mate!

    5 Door m8.

    The standard fronts are 6.5 inch but they are molded into the spacer so they appear to be 5.25". They are actually 6.5" and I have upgraded the speakers to JL audio's, and hopefully soon, CDT Audio 620-Eurosports in the front and 5.25" HD braxials in the rear.

    Not sure why your Infinities don't fit. If you had a pic of the spacer and the speakers I should be able to help.
