I used a 5 minute epoxy glue for the grills. Look is totally stock. Still have not installed my new amp so no sound yet. I've got a lot of other projects going on.
Looks great! This is the new Focal 5.25” component speakers?Finished this up tonight.
The adapter rings mentioned earlier showed up today. Perfect fit to car and speakers (you have to clip out the inner ring to fit these speakers like I did to the one on the right):

Speaker in the adapter. Same angle and mounting holes as stock:

Tweater in place:

I used these drywall anchors to mount the adapter to the door in the origional holes (I made the holes slightly bigger to fit these). They mushroom behind the hole to fasten to the door. Also known as a "Jack Nut" or "Molly Bolt". Worked great:

I used some foam tape to seal the gap against the door, and needed to screw the speaker into the door. Just made a pilot hole, used some longer screws, and this worked great. The door panel fit perfectly over this with no modification. I didn't get a picture of it, but I just ran the speaker wire through an existing hole into the door to get behind the driver:

FYI, I also have the Alpine amp installed.
This was well worth the cost and effort. It sounds MUCH better than stock. I'm glad I did it...
It would be really tight, but it may be ok. I installed a set of Hertz speakers that are 57 mm deep.
Great! Thanks, guys.I assume you are using the angled speaker adapters? I'm guessing you'll be fine in that case, but you'd have to try. You are trying to avoid this part of the window mechanism:

As a comparison, if you placed the 130 directly in the hole (I'm not recommending that, just for sake of argument), the lower side of the magnet just touched the upper side of this spring. WIth the offset and angle of the adapter, it wasn't near it at all. It all depends on the depth and diamater of the magnet.
