The flip side of the coin is, that most American companies under state the actual power of their speakers and amplifiers due to laws.

guys here are the pics of my zens front door pads..as u can see the front pod is integrated in the door pad itself and i cannot put 5.25'' or 6.5'' components as i cant just detach the grill part as was suggested earlier..or do i have to cut the entire grill part of it..even if i cut the grill part of it will the components fit without fouling at the back that is the door part..can i fix the 6.5'' compos or do i have to go in for the kickpanels..





gunbir,navin,sam (all in alphabetical order!!!) ur views on this..

Have you tried opening the door panels to see whats underneath. As in whats the cutout in the actual door. Post pics if you can. That'll be helpful. I'm sure 130mm / 5.25" will not be an issue. You could just mount them and put your door panels back on. Again, pics will be great
