what do i need to fit a 6.5in midrange in my front door? i think i read somewhere an MDF spacer will work fine, does anyone know what depth or have a pic of it?

i tried searching cause i swear i've seen this topic before but no results showed up when i typed in "6.5" :?

Depends on the 6.5" 'Some' will fit...I know from experience Alpines new range don't due to the thick fancy lookin support arms....

You can go a 9mm MDF spacer or modify the factory 6" hole to take em...what I did for mine.

Again MDF spacer may not work depending on the size/depth of the speaker you go with.

Yeh thats all i did for the Alpine 6.5" splits I have in the factory holes just use a jigsaw and metal cutters to cut out the sections to allow the thicker mounting arms to slide in...nice neat fit and sounds great :)
