|gmeachem||hey, I'm very interested in pastoriusk2's configuration. I recently replaced the front speakers with the Focal ISS165 component speakers and the rears with the coax equivelant. The results were not an improvement. The front speakers are all bass with no treble. I can put my head up to the tweeter in the door and there is barely anything coming out. The rear speakers are all treble and no bass. It just caught my eye that you replaced your stock 6 speaker system with focals as well and you didn't list an aftermarket amp so I was hoping for some insight. Thanks!|

|BigJay||Hi, Yea re-using the brackets is what I was trying to do however it seems the lip on my speakers (where you screw them in) rest on the raised thin lip of the bracket, I tried to remove the lip on the bracket however it didn't come out clean. The bigger problem was the basket for my new speakers is just a hair too big to fit in the opening of the re-used bracket, I'll post some pics tonight of what I mean...|

You would either need to use aftermarket spacers or mount the new speakers to the destroyed spacers from the OEM speakers, but 6.75's should work.
If you are soldering, I wouldn't see the speaker gauge being an issue.

Hey guys, I'm trying to replace my focus' speakers with new coax speakers. I purchased 1 set of focal pc165 for the front doors and 1 set of JL c2 650's for the rear door. I just finished removing the door panel and moding the bracket but it seems like no matter how much i cut back the bracket the speakers don't seem to fit! Are these speakers 6-3/4"? is that why? Can I buy an aftermarket bracket that will work??
As well I was trying to use 16GA wire to connect the speaker to the bracket connection points and seem to be having a tough time soldering the wire on, should I be using a lower gauge wire??
