Hello everyone,

Just wondering if anyone has specs on the mounting depth in the 05 outbacks for door speakers. I know there is supposedly more room in the redesign, but I am about to replace speakers and want to save some trouble by knowing up front.

Thanks!

I have not purchased the service manuals yet. Other cars I have owned contained this info in the service manuals if anyone has the books or the PDF files.

Hi BlackonBlack.

The stock speakers are 1.75" but you can get away with about 2". Anything bigger then that and you will need to use a spacer. The spacer can be as thick as 1", but if the speaker's maximum cone excursion is quite high, the cone might hit the door panel at high volume with a 1" spacer.

So you can go with 3" thick speakers with a 1" spacer.

Hope this helps.

Thanks sduford! That is exactly what I needed. I am planning on putting either Boston Pro60's or the 6.5 Z series in over the next week or so. They should both fit with spacers. I just did not know the stock size.

Thanks again!

Anyone know where I could get those 1" spacers?
