Have em in the EF XR - 6.5"s fit fine however you will need to use a spacer (only a couple mm thick required) or a couple nuts as noted above...

Depending on the thickness of the spacer etc you may need to cut into the factory hole due to the wider supports on the rear of the driver.

Be careful not to go to wide as the speaker when pushed hard as the cone is exerted fully the outer black rubber ring will rub/touch the rear of the grill (if u look on the back of the grill it can protude a fair whack and needs to be rubbed back at the joins) - this will prevent puncturing.

Awesome for the money they provide excellent SQ results and great midbass response

They can be picked up from as little as $150 (watch for mid year financial clearance sales etc from alpine approved resellers) up to $299rrp.
