Anyone know what the mount depth is like in a Mk 2 door for a 6.5" speaker?

I've found some mids, but they need 81mm...

THat's quite deep - perhaps a spacer might lift it out enough? I don't have exact dimensions but IIRC my speaker was about 60mm deep and just cleared the window.

Balls, I was afraid this might be the case.

Spacer is possible, but we're talking over 20mm...might have to use some different mids.

My 8 inch crossfire midbasses are 93mm deep. they clear the window nicely. I used an 18mm mdf spacer and I can still get the standard door cards over them ;)

The mids youve found arent focal polykevlars are they at a guess.

Indeed - very detailed and VERY punchy, which is something I don't get with the UP5s.

I'm going active using an Arc MX1, Coral ND48 supertweets on the dash and the HE165s in the doors. 80w RMS to the tweets and 250w RMS to the mids.

Never tried active before, so this should be interesting!
