Don't remember off hand but if you're shopping for speakers go here.

Use it as a guide for fitment only.

6 and 1/2 door, 6x9 rear deck.

Note the door is shallow depth, unless you cut the plastic cup.

"Regular" 6.5" speakers don't fit, I read you need the 5.25" ones. I know for sure that my Polk 6.5" components don't fit

My Infinty 6.5's fit nicely.

You need to trim the plastic cup out for almost any speaker to fit.

6.5 should fit perfectly.

JL XR and ZR series speakers will require some serious fabrication to make them fit, just FYI, but damn do they sound good.

I stand corrected, standard 6.5" do fit. However "oversize" 6.5" do not, which may be the case with my Polks and several other speakers out in the market. That is not to say 5.25" will not fit; the OEM baffle even has 4 holes to bolt it on.

I knew I read somewhere about 6.5" not fitting...it's the oversized ones that don't.

Well some manufacturers, market speakers as 6.5/6.75 those are typically bigger.

This is true.

I had some old kicker ds650's, what a PITA.
The terminals were on the sides, No way of getting them to fit without chopping up the pannel.


But, 9 times out of 10, the baffle, or the "cup" will need to be removed, unless you're speakers are pretty shallow.

Are you sure that isn't that issue? The cup takes minutes to remove.
