So... I got them in the mail today.
I was really excited about them... I even thought I could install them today. After all, if I fitted some 6.5's, 5.25's would be a breeze right.
OK... so I open them, and everything looks fine. I had heard the crossovers were big, but damn, they're really big. In the back, however, I read SR6500. That didnt' please me much, as the crossover settings are probably different from the 5250s. BUT, i'm running active so didn't care much.
But then, I look at the woofers, and they are pretty big, in fact, they are 6.5's, and in the back it says sr6500's. So i got a set of sr6500's in a box that says 5250's.
The install is going to be tough. The spx's are definitely smaller so I'm going to have to use the provided spacers, and make them fit (If i had a plasma cutter I would just cut the door a bit and it would be easy, but alas my equipment is barely anything more than screwdrivers). And for the tweeters, I will have to use the angled mount, which sucks because I liked the stock look, but they are TOO deep and will not clear within my stock A Pillar grilles. Worst thing is that my A pillar is not entirely flat, it curves, so the mount will have a small gap towards the windshield. I will have to wrap the pillars with black leather or something if the gap is too ugly looking. Of course it can only be seen from outside the car, but still. :(
Also, one of the tweeter grilles is missing, so does anyone know where can I get one? I don't want the tweeters to just be bare.
All in all, I cannot complain for 225 dollars, it's just going to be a lot more work than I expected. That's the price to pay for ebay speakers.
