It turns out the front door speaker depth is very limited about 2''or so,however the rear parcel shelf speakers can be accessed by just removing the speaker grills and will acomodate a deeper speaker up to 2.5'' i hope this helps anyone planning a speaker transplant

Hi Ivan,

I'm trying to sort out the speakers as well. The rears did not turn out how I was thinking they would. Want the sound quality but they sound too tinny and high freq.

I've got Earthquake speakers so would keep away tbh...do let us know what you put in! I'm on the lookout now too
