Re: Replacement for 5.25" door speakers on a 1G?
Ok, I think I know what's going on. From what I gather after asking around, the door cutouts on the door sheet metal itself are different sizes depending on what speaker size was installed from the factory. Also, there are 2 different size speaker baskets/ brackets from the factory depending on which speaker was installed. So if your car came with 5-1/4" speakers and you want to install 6.5" ones, you'll have to cut out the hole in the door sheet metal bigger and get the larger bracket/ basket, fabricate your own or see if there's an aftermarket one.
I wonder why DSM didn't just make them all one size with the bigger hole and use a bracket that fills in the extra space for the smaller 5-1/4" speaker. Perhaps the sound quality would suffer? If so, that's attention to detail.
