@ Amit the pic as requested. 6.5" speaker mounted on the door with spacer. Cut the fibre door trim to make space. Job not 100% complete. Some cleaning up job still left.

Think this might help,

Get the markings right if you planning to use a wooden spacer to fit the comps. Fiberglassing can make it a much better looking job,

Alto produces some serious jarring, so some damping and reinforcement would help if you installing any comps with some decent mids.

The below install will only work if you have power windows on the car.

BlueRaven's work is the best way to proceed if one has power windows.

I don't understand how Rohan has managed to fit it in the door. Where and how. Please put up a full door picture to understand it better. Also, where did your door pockets go? Or is there a version without pockets?

Rohan has a Zen. It doesn't come with door pockets and has power windows.

nice job blueraven, what all damping did u require? which damping material did u use? have u put the damping just on the metal parts or even the fibre?

whats the cost of after market power windows? if its not too costly i can go for it.

aftermarket power windows with fitment might cost you 6.5 to 7k for a 2 door variant.

There are different kinds of damping and sound proofing, damping mats can be useful on metal parts to eliminate road noise, but that does not eliminate plastic jarr, for a car like an alto, it would be good if a coat of fiberglass can be applied on the back of the door pad.

do u mean i need to increase the weight of the fibre so that it doesnt jarr. i think noise kill can be used on the sheet metal of the door. can the same be done on the fibre. or pasting some heavy rubber matts?
