I need to get a pair of 6.5" momo comps into a subaru outback limited...So far the biggest hastle is finding a way to get the speakers to fit in the stock opening. What I mean is that they are too deep because the front window drops down and would hit the speaker.
I could use the supplied spacer, but then how do I know that the woofer won't be touching the door panel after I close everything up? Couldn't I damage the surround or the cone if the woofer was beating itself against the door panel?
Should I just listen for vibrating and if there is none I'm safe?
Another thing...I know polks speakers are rated to be fine for water but how about ice? This car will be in maine throughout the winter so I'm afraid snow on the window will melt, find it's way into the door panel, onto the speaker and then freeze. My 5.25" momo comps survived winter in another car but the window in that car did not drop down right behind the speaker. Should I be worried or will the speakers be fine in the door?
I think I might just take some thin foam and make a 3 sided baffle with the bottom open. That way if water did get in, it wouldn't collect in the baffle and water wouldn't run from the window onto the speaker. How's that idea sound?
