    Few years ago, I bought speakers for my front doors. I could not find 6x9's to fit without hitting the window hardware inside the door. I have manual windows. Any members have any recommendations on which 6x9's would fit?

    Right now I have 5 3/4" in doors with a kit I bought from Crutchfield. I'm not happy with them so I'd like to put 6x9's back in.

    I also have powers and rockford 6x9s in both my doors, never had clearance issues just buggy wiring from cheap connectors. Of course if you have the infinity amps along with them, it may cause some clearance issues but relocation of the amps wouldn't be to hard

    The problem I have with the 6x9's is the depth of the speaker. The magnet rests up against the window guide. It s a metal rod. I don't have the Infinity system, glad I don't have to deal with that.

    Problem using those mounts is that, even a 1/4" spacer between the door and speaker. the door panel will be up against the speaker.

    By shallow mount moparmagic means the actual speaker design, not spacers. Shallow mount speakers are designed thinner than full size speakers and would be a viable solution to clearance issues. I Believe the design of my rockford a are shallow mount, after I get home I'll see about getting a link.

    Thanks for your time and the link. I'll give it a shot and report back with the outcome.

    After checking out the link provided, I am interested in these speakers. Does anyone have these installed & do they perform well? I have a 2001 Ram 2500 Quad V-10 4x4.

    As posted I have those speakers in my doors and love them. Especially if you still have factory infinity amps. Really clean component speakers with good sound.

    You definitely need shallow mounts. I had the same problem with my speakers. I've got some JL Audio shallows in my doors and not a problem. Big improvement from factory too.
