I put JL Audio 6" components in the rears. The tweeters are mounted up high right next to the glass. I just built a small ring that pushes the speaker out farther. Kind of the same principal that was used to put the 5 1/4 in the dash that Jim Clayton suggested. My problem wasn't the depth, it was the diameter of the speaker grill for the speakers that I was looking at, they were too big for the recessed area where the speaker goes.
Everything is kind of dusty I was out for a long drive the past few days and I was going through an area with a ton of construction

I left the pic big for detail

I used some Infinity's in the rear, they weren't the high end components just 3 way co-ax's. They weren't a perfect fit as I had to compress the foam in the back of the speaker cavity a bit but I got them screwed in and the rear covers on after a bit.

Looking to replace my rear speakers with 6 1/2" , preferably drop-in....After searching, I have come across the Polk DB651S shallow mounts as fitting......

Has anyone tried these shallow-mount infinitys?

or these JBL?

I installed the 6022si speakers in my Elise.

I only had to cut some of the foam out of the cavity, so they would sit flush with the rear panel. Took about an extra 5 minutes per side.

Great sounding speaker. :up:

Wayne
