5X7's into EF

I'm thinking about putting some 5x7's into the front doors of my EF, but the standard size in there is 5x6 isnt it?

If so, is it possible (and legal) to put in the 5x7's, and how would i go about it?

Re: 5X7's into EF

Standard size holes are 6 inch (or 6.5, not sure), but not 5 x 6. I wouldn't bother making them fit and would just buy a better pair of speakers that will just drop in...

Re: 5X7's into EF

yep just get some 6inch or 6.5inch splits in the front.

5x7s and 6x9s are used more for bass in the back for systems without a sub.

Re: 5X7's into EF

6.5" splits in the front, 6" in the rear, and a 12" sub is all you need for a decent sounding system.

Re: 5X7's into EF

yep! what yagz said 6.5inch splits in front, 6inch in rear and 12inch sub is a good all round size. just get decent quality speakers and have enough power running to speakers and sub, a big 4 channel amp for speakers and a seperate amp for the sub should do the job. and a good box to suit the sub. and it will sound pretty good.

Re: 5X7's into EF

As a recommendation, I have 6.5" Earthquake speakers in the front and 7 x 10" Kenwoods in the rear. I don't have a sub, but a lot of people think I do. The earthquake 6.5"s have really good bass and are also very clear and have very good mid-high. I would recommend them. The standard size for the front is 6" but the 6.5's fit without too much effort and are worth the hassle.
