speakers

Well I bought some infinity kappa 693.9i in 6x9s and i knew that they would require some work to fit properly. but can anyone tell me exactly what has to be done to make them fit? it looks like the front speakers will hit my window when they're down... if anyone can help i would greatly appreciate it.

I think all that really needs to be done is to make the holes bigger.... I dont know about them hitting the window. Compair the depth of yoru 6x9 to a 5x7(6x8) and see.

You are going to have to do some hacking to get it in the door I'm guessing.
Now you may be able to make yourself a frame template that you screw to the door and then screw the speaker into the template. The thickness of it is determined by how far do you need to come up off of door to have magnet clear glass.
There is some leeway in how far the speaker mounts away from door but it will eventually hit the door panels.

One big tip as far as I am concerned: Get yourself speaker baskets for all of them. These are foam rubber baskets that you put in the hole and then the speaker goes into these. They will help with midrange frequencies (voice/ mids) and they keep the moisture out of the speakers.
Most people think it's dry inside the door but let me tell you: it Ain't dry. They are very inexpensive $8.00 or somewhere in there.
You get the 6x9's to fit and they should sound very nice, a bigger sound then the smaller 5x7 ..

Well I installed J&L Audio C5-570 5x7 in my doors and the depth of them are 2.40. Now I can't say that is the max depth you can install.
Roll up the window and shove a tape measure in the hole till it hits the glass and see what you got. I would think you would like at least 1/4 slack or more.
The speaker baskets are really a smart install item, the door cavity is by no means a good acoustic enclosure.
