Surely plenty of people have put 6.5" speakers in their car, but how easy/hard is it, or does it depend on the depth of the speaker also?

Speakers I will be fitting are Alpine SPR-175a splits

Cheers!

6.5" speakers are generally the exact same size as a 6" speaker.

Some companies include the speaker cover or surround in their measurements while others do not. Thats the difference between a 6" and a 6.5" speaker.

Always check the mounting depth also.
