I bought a set of components with a 3.1" mounting depth, as you all know you cannot mount speakers that deep due to the window track. Well you can make mdf baffles or you can do this, which worked out very well.

1. Remove factory speaker/baffle (all one piece).
2. Use utility knife and cut out the factory speaker.
3. Cut factory speaker basket, it's like 7 or 8 plastic things.
4. This will seperate the magnet and speaker from the baffle.
5. Use a dremel or knife or hand jigsaw and shave the inside of the baffle ring where you cut the basket from until your speaker fits perfectly on top and in the speaker baffle.
6. Take 2 part epoxy found at any hardware store (i used lock tite) and fill the empty cavities in the baffle ring.
7. Let sit for a couple hours and harden.
8. You now have a solid ring that you can fasten your comps too.
9. Re-install the baffle with your speaker mounted to it.

Door panel fits on just like normal and windows roll down without having to do a window track mod, sounds great as well.

I wanted to install some new speakers for a couple of months now on my 6-month old 06 DC. Without a direct drop in, I was chicken. But after reading ALL the speaker install posts, and particularly this one above, I decided to give it a try.

Just finished installing Polk db6501s in the front doors, and, following lost1700's general outline, I was very successful, and they sound great! Thanks to all and especially to lost1700.
