What is the deepest mounting depth that can be used in the front door stock location? From reading ALL the posts, I see that Stresspuppy fit 2.5" deep MB Premiums in the stock location and only needed to expand the panel hole. I'd like to do a similar install, but with slightly deeper speakers. Anyone know if this is possible, or would I have to go the route of 97cruiser and redesign the door panel?

Read the thread in the 80s sticky section. 1 7/8 is the deepest i think.

Use the search and you will find that you will need to mod to fit anything that deep.

ok non 80's but on my 60 in the doors I needed to use washers to prevent the window from hitting the speaker. I just used washers as shims and actually had about 3-4 washers per screw. It worked and the door panel still fit. My speaker was a sony explode. so pretty deep.

I mounted my Kenwoods to the door panel. real easy and no need to get crazy with mods. Of course I now have a different grill showing.

I used Diamond Audio components that were 2 1/8" deep in the front doors but used the supplied grill since I did not care about the original look.

Thats good to know, I'll have to look into Diamonds a little more. What did you have to do for install, any cutting involved? Where did you put the tweeters? Do you think something a little deeper could have gone in and still used used the factory location?

Thanks Perk
