Ack, careful

I have bought Cerwin Vega 5 1/4s and they don't fit. I also have bought others. It is actually kind of difficult to get speakers to fit in the front.

Try the MB Quart Discus line: DSD 216s

I believe they fit without modification, but, they may require you to cut out the basket that is inside the door - that way the magnet can fit.

MB Quart makes very nice speakers, check them out.

If you do a search you should be able to find more information.

RJs99TypeSH,
on the 5 1/4's that didn't fit, did you cut out the basket and it still didn't fit? also, would a .5" or so spacer have allowed it to fit?

I'm looking at getting a set of 5 1/4's (alpine spx-137a) but i really want to make sure it fits since i have to order it online and i don't know how easy it would be to return them if it doesn't fit.

Thanks!

Sorry I was so late on the response.

Cerwin Vega's did not fit because of depth; they are non-stealth models from about 3 years ago, and the magnets have a plastic casing on them that must be 1 1/4" thick... I DID cut the basket, but, that did me no good, as it still hit the door assembly behind that... I didn't try spacers because 1.) It looked like too much, and 2.) I want 6 1/2" components anyway ;)
