Well, a cutting wheel is the onyl real way to cut into these, you jsut pick up a coupel packs of heavy duty cut off wheels - burs are just a natural thing when cutting metal, if you cut something, you always sand it down one way or another :-)

i've got boston pro 60 6.5s.



They cost a bit but if you want top of the line, buy them on ebay or from a more reputable source. There's really nothing at all better quality

You can click the link in my sig, it points right to my in-forum profile - although for just a look at it:

Sony CDX-GT81UW Receiver

Have been for several years, and its fantastic! Cant buy them anymore, but the newer ones are out and equally good!

Thanks. I was just wondering about the RMS for your radio since you're not amped. It's pushing 17...
I'm looking for a good radio. Might have to give Sony a look...

with me i just had 6*9's laying around but for the most part theyres a way bigger market out there for 6*9s than 6*8 you can get a much better speaker for the same or even less that what you would pay for a 6*8

also to the auther i read about the dremel discs you said 3 discs per speaker and i learned this little trick when cutting for my expo ohc if you stack like 2 or 3 of them they work much better and last much longer than 2 or 3 individually

Is there any cutting or fabrication needed to get the 6x9's to fit in the back of a single cab?

I just got 2 sets of Rockford fosgate 6x9s, an amp, and an amp kit off eBay for $150. I couldnt pass it up. Sor for me, the 6x9s are worth the extra work.
