hey guys

i seem to be a little confused.
i am getting some alpine type R 6.5 splits for the front of my VR
ive searched on here and asked around and i seem to get mixed responses.

50% say i wont need spacers
and the other 50% say i wont need to modify anything.

can someone give me a direct answer please?
maybe someone who has put 6.5 in a VR-VS

thanx

Hey mate,
i have put 6.5inch splits in the front of my vs. they do not fit INTO the factory speaker pods, however you can menouver the magnet in, and then fit the speaker ontop of the speaker pod, and just put some screws in. In short, yes you can fit 6.5inch straight in.
Cheers mate, goodluck

nah mate, when you put the door trim back together it all goes back on fine, maybe the speaker pod will sit out a few mm but you cant notice at all

What kind of 6.5's were they, if they are a good brand with big magnets they will not fit in with out a bit of cutting and it is always best to fibre glass them back up to get some nice bass back.
