Weird. I wonder if the m3 doors have deeper mounting depth. Cuz my installer just called and said he couldnt get them in. He said his co-worker tried too. :banghead:

Oh well, they are putting my rainbow pros back in the doors. So i know it wont sound like ****, but i still wanted the focals in. :bawling:

Commander FAT,

Do you know any good audio shops around here they might be able to get them in? :)

Their definately deep and require some modding. In fact we're not happy with them in my doors so we're throwing them in the rear for fill and going with 165W3's up front with the 6.5'' in the kicks and 5.75'' in the doors.

I'm getting my head unit installed at Tweeter on monday.

I hear Excel Audio in Palatine is a good shop. It's not too far from Schaumburg.
