What year is your car? I could shoe horn a 6.5 in my doors but the 5.25's worked much better so thats what I went with. They sound pretty good.

I installed JL 6.5" components in my 06 sedan. The hole cut in the doors for the speakers aren't cut for 6.5", but the stock speakers are 6.5". This is b/c the stock speaker mounts further out and has a smaller magnet then regular speakers, so the hole doesn't need to be as big. I recommend just cutting the metal so you can fit 6.5"s like your supposed to. Its very easy if you have a steady hand and a jig saw. As for the depth, any speaker with more then 2" your going to need to make a spacer, which again is very easy. I have a half inch spacer and I still have 2" to 3" of space between the stock grill and the front of the speaker.
