I will be getting an Impala soon (96 probably) and I am in the process of trying to design the stereo. How deep are the stock locations in the front doors? The 6.5's I'm looking at 3 inches deep.

They will fit using the adaptor found in the tech tips.

Thank you.

I noticed the adaptor. That's pretty nice of people to put up stuff like that.

Note however you might need to trim some metal if you buy speakers with large magnets... (Alpine R series for one). It's no big deal though, couple minutes with a jigsaw and you're done.

True, true...I'm running 8's in my door.
If all goes well, my stereo will be finished
before the Tulsa event..

I didn't have to hack the door up when i had my infinity 6.5 speakers in the door. But then i upgraded to alpine type -x and i had trim some metal in the door. No big deal.

Had to "tweak" the metal on my doors for my Focal 165k2's. And we used 3/4" mdf for the template!
