I went to the Crutchfield website and used their cross reference to find speakers that will fit in my 97 reg cab.

I noticed it only listed 5 1/4" speakers for the doors, yet I see some of you guys have gone with 6 1/2".

Does it take much modification to go with the larger speakers?

I want to replace all my factory spkrs but I still want that factory interior look.

I replaced the factory speakers in the dash with Infinity 4x6 plates.

WOW! I'm hooked!

Now I want to replace the door speakers, but as I said in my original post, I'm concerned with the fit.

I intend to use Infinity Kappa 6 1/2's in the doors, and was wondering if anyone else has used these.

If so, how well do they fit? Is there enough room behind the speaker?

ETC........

use 6 1/2" speakers. you can use the infinity brand if you want. there is plenty of space for them

Ok, I was doin some readin' and came across a review of some DDW6.5's.

I like them, but the mounting depth is 3 1/8".

What is the max mounting depth in the doors of a 97 S-10?

I'd like to know before spending the bucks.

Thanx guys
