Will these speakers fit in our doors?
 
I am looking at the focal 165v2's not the slims. I heard the non slims sound better plus i can get a great deal on them. If not how hard would it be to mount them in a sedan door? They have a 72mm mounting depth what is the mounting depth for sedan front doors??

Thanks

they will have to shave down the mounting ring, which will give you about 8 or 9mm more depth. so, its really a minor mod to the door panel stock mount.

send me your email and I can attach some pictures another guy sent me of his Focal Utopia install. My speakers are Alpine SPX-F17M, but are about the same depth. I dont have pics of mine.

I modded my doorpanel and inside the door to fit the Alpine SPR 176A. Im doing some more mods to get teh SPX 176A pretty soon. Im going to shave all the OEM mounting ring from the doorpanel and make a new one.
I dont have a pic of the finish job on the door. I molded the new hole and painted it with OEM ferngreen paint.
