I ended up getting Infinity Primus PR6510CS components for the front door / tweeters - 160mm woofers fit nicely once I bent the screw mounts out of the way. The tweeters fit into the stock housing with the use of a little adapter they had, but I had to cut off the screw mount on the back of the adapter to get the to fit properly.

Question about securing the 6.5”s in the stock housing - I hot glued the sh*t out of it and that’s it! Is there anything else I can do to secure it? Or do you think hot glue will hold?

I will be building a box for a shallow mount Infinity REF1000S to put in the stock subwoofer spot in the back of the cargo area. That will be powered by an Alpine MRV-M250.

The infinity components sound so much better. Will be ordering the Memphis mids for the dash although I don’t think I really even need them.

Stock Nav / HU with out DSP
Infinity PR6510CS 6.5 / tweeters
Stock amp for separates
Infinity REF1000s at 4ohm
Alpine MRV-M250

Nope. Hot glue will not hold. I don't like gluing drivers in but if I had to, would tack it in place with a couple of hot glue dabs, then run a bead of silicon gasket maker around the perimeter. That stuff won't come off until you want it to. LoL, and sometimes not even then.

Agreed, hot glue will get brittle and sometime, in the near future, you’ll be driving along, hit a bump and hear it fall into the door panel.

I would go with the gasket maker as well, and if you can, maybe a zip tie or two at the top and bottom

Thanks crystalworks and purplefade - I ran some gasket maker around the inside

I am swapping the front mid range speakers with Memphis 2.75” and am wondering if I need the resistor from the factory mid setup?

NEVERMIND - saw the info on post #22 of this thread
