I have 6.5" comps installed in the front doors of my indica. No problems at all so far. Only had to get the sheet metal bent to make room for the speakers. Nothing major.

akg, you also need to cut the stock portion AND bend the metal.

Forgot about that. Yes, the stock plastic portion is also cut. There are no problems with the power windows in case anyone's wondering about that

Never had any problem with water entering the door till now. It might be because I have never driven my car through waterlogged roads before

Hi gurus

I'll be doing a DIY install of 6.5" coax speakers in the front doors of my Indica. Unfortunately there is no installer in my city who can fit a size larger than 5.25".

I have a few questions for the gurus :

Do I need to bend / cut the sheet metal visible behind the spacer ring in Picture 3 (caption in bold )

Is the spacer ring in Pic 3 attached to the plastic door panel or is it also attached to the metal door frame?
If only to the door panel, wont it become loose and rattle ?

@akg7091

What is the thickness of the spacer used in your setup?

here are some pics

You would need to cut out a portion of the stock locations plastic.


Install the door panel back and install a MDF spacer ring of approprite depth. What you see here is a 6.5" midbass driver.


Connect your speaker...


Mount it


Attach the grill


And you're done!!!


Cheers

Not really, but that also depends on your spacer depth and midbass profile.

IIRC, its attached only to the plastic. And no, there are no problems till now as I met the owner recently.

Gunbirji,

Thanks for the reply

A few more questions :

What kind of screws are best for attaching the spacer to the panel ?

As seen in picture 1 there is a screw on the door panel which is cut off with the plastic, Wont it affect the stability of the panel ?

I'd use a screw/nut combo and then use quick fix on the nut.

Navinji, And would it be advisable to pass the screw through the metal sheet ?

I removed the screw (Pic 1) and the lower end comes loose. How should I fix that ?

Thanks

Navinji,
This is what i was talking about. There's the plastic door panel just behind the spacer and the metal is about half an inch behind that.
