It would have been possible if the paper shelf like thin was not there on the door...where usually the front speaker slots are provided...
Am not sure if they are present in the lxi model...WEl if they are not there..then atleast a 6.5" speaker should fit... Of course when installed by a professional installer..

Here's your workable Idea, drive to Bangalore, then to koramangla, and then to Auto fusion.
I have seen him do numerous Door installs on Altos, Wagon Rs and Santros etc till date. The name, "Anwar" is enough, fit and finish wont be an issue.

My Wagon R has 6.5" speakers in the front doors. The door pockets are cut, and it uses spacers. Navin has seen the install.

I'll post pics soon.

For install I paid 6k.
It includes mdf for subwoofer enclosure/mdf for 2 body attached speaker box's and front compos fitment and labour charges ofcourse.
i know its bit expensive but its worth ,fit and finish is great and no vibrations trust me.

For Boston compos -5.5k -


cheers
Prashant

I guess the Alpine 4" components should cost between 10-12k, thats the US price converted in Indian rupees and not the MSRP but the discounted price by the various sellers online that I have witnessed my lord.

even in blore, national market, the prices are as good as US online prices ( discounted, and yeah I could not get the Alpine 4" compos there, who will be nuts to buy them...lol), i really dont know how? anybody?
