If your fitting it to the factory door pod, the maximum depth is 2", so you would need a shallow mount speaker. Do remember that the door speakers are crossed over low and run in mono. If your plan is to use them as full range, you would need to rewire your system and replace the amp.

Had a similar problem with speaker depth in my rear doors (I know, a wagon...). Shopped for what I thought was a killer deal and the magnets are just too damn big, both depth and width. Major surgery required to fit them. Grill covers won't go back on properly. Bummer. But they are Kappas and they sound great!

Thanks! I didn't know that about the crossovers or mono. Or the amp for that matter. I was gonna just use the factory wiring but with the amp there I guess I'll HAVE to rewire them. 2" huh? Wow! And the Kappas were on my short list. :)
