E90 Top Mounted Front Door Speaker Questions

Hi,
I did alot of research online and after reading some posts by Technic on a few different websites i answered alot of my own questions.

I think after looking at everything that i want to change out the front door speakers to some 5.25" speakers that would be able to handle a bit of power.

I know that the overall mounting depth if you top mount the midrange is going to be ~65mm, but what is the size of the cutout in the door panel behind the grill?

The speakers i want to use have a depth of around 57.3mm from the top of the mounting ring to the base of the magnet and no venting on the pole piece, do you think that these will be able to fit without top mounting?

and lastly, how do you guys that using a coaxial in the front door will sound. Something like the Morel PointSource Drivers?

IF ANYONE HAS CAN THEY POST A PICTURE OF AN E90 MID TOPMOUNTED IN A FRONT DOOR

Also, i have yet to use a morel set of speakers. I have heard a few sets like the tempo 6s, and a set of the ultimo 9s in a few friends cars, but those demos were at "reference levels". I have a simple question, how loud do those bad boys get?

i've decided that i don't really like how that looks and am going to build my own door panels incorporating a my A/D/S 346is component system. Something like the Jehnert DoorBoards. Will post build pics when i do it, i'm starting next week after final exams.
