6.5s possible in front door speakers?

Ive searched the forums and realize most have upgraded to 5.25s. I have a set of MB quart 6.25s that id like to install and hate to see go to waste, so im wondering if it is realistically possible to install them?

Thanks

You will need custom door panels.

Actually Jehnert makes some cool door panels .
Go to there website to see them. Don't you wish BMW
had put some decent size speakers where those useless map
holders go.

You should realize that due to the off axis midrange installation in the door you will suffer some from beaming problems and the 6 1/2 inch midbass will not give you good sound quality in the seating positions

I've got the jehnert panels with 3-6 1/2 mid bass drivers and 1 under seat mid bass as well as 5 1/4 midranges.

gotcha thanks... I've kinda ruled them out then... I dont have the extra dough to drop on the Jenhert door cards.


I'm going to look a bit into the 5.25 modifications... but likely I'll end up with a set of 4" Helix 234G's

Good idea since a 5 1/4" has to be surface mounted and mine barely fit when the door is closed with respect to the dash board.
