BMWespresso, are you asking which is easier to install, 5.25, or 6.5?

If so, I would say that if someone is going to do something similar to what I did, it would be easier to install the 6.5s. I don't know how I would have secured a smaller driver, but the 6.5 just got "sandwiched" between the door panel ring and the wood template. I used M4-.70x35mm bolts (x2), and a 10x1-1/2" (x1) for each side to make up for the increased distance between wood and door, lock-tited them, and screwed them down snug.

BTW, in retrospect, my wood template could have been a much simpler design.
