    6 x 9's in front doors

    Hey guys.

    This is just a thought (so not likely to actually go ahead with) but i was just wondering if it was possible to fit 6x9's into the front doors of my 5 door mk4 astra? obviously it may involved cutting a bigger space, but was just wondering if anyone knew whether it was possible or not?

    Thanks in advance

    You'd probably have to live without a door card, or butcher one to take the extra width of a 6x9

    Saves cutting the door out make a big MDF spacer, say and 18mm one. As all you are going to have to do then is accommodate the magnet of the 6x9 then rather than cutting the door itself

    Don't waste your time, fit a decent set of 6" components instead. It will sound so much better.

    See now that's what I would normally say

    But if I ever said anything else, I'd get shot down and someone would say he wanted to know about 6x9's and not components instead...
