    I purchased some older BostonAcoustics PROSeries 6.5 Component Speakers. These include •(2)6.5" Boston Acoustics ProSeries 6.5 LF Component Speakers•(2) BostonAcoustics ProSeries 4.5 LF Component Speakers •(2) 1" Boston Acoustics Neo5T ProSeries Tweeters•(2) Boston Acoustics 6.5 3x Crossovers.
    Is there anyway to fit the 6.5 and the 4.5 side by side in the 6X9 opening on the front door without modifying the door panel? I can cut the door and modify the inside of the door panel but wanted to leave the door panel looking stock. Is there another location to mount the 4.5's?

    Thanks

    you could use a kick panel to have installed the 6.5" or 4.5". otherwise, sometimes a good deal just isn't worth it if you cant fit it in without a huge amount of modifications.

    you could also attempt to fit the 4.5" where the tweeter is located on the door, and have someone build up a tweeter pod for your a pillar, or mirrors.

    Too many to list. See build page. Link in signature
    Google: Q-Forms Kick Panel Enclosure. They can be found on Crutchfield.com and eBay. Retail $179.99 and come in Black, Grey, or Tan. Expensive but honestly of your really going to run a 3-way setup up front, you really should do it right. There is no such thing as a cheap 3 way setup. Consider putting your 6.5 in kick panel, 4.5 in factory 6x9 location, and 1" in factory tweeter location. And if your not going to amplify these, they aren't going to sound good no matter how you mount them. Get a 4 channel and the kick panel mounts and your truck will sound amazing, you won't regret it. If your going to shove it all in the door with no amp, honestly I'd just sell the speakers and get something that is made for your door.
