I'm just starting to look for speakers and I'm not sure what is the maximum mounted depth I can go to for the upper and lower speakers. For the lowers, I don't want to cut into the glove boxes.

I have 2 RF 300X4 and a JVC Arsenal KD-A95BT waiting for speakers.

I'm looking at focal 6.5" components (upper & replace 2 gauges) and CDT 6.5" woofers on the inside/lower.

So far I've seen speakers with a mounting depth of 1.9" to right at 3"

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I used the same RF speakers Yaffe uses in their house party system, I also did the cut with the inner fairing still mounted to the bike. I guess you could go to the RF sight to get the dimensions. BTW have you thought about either mounting the tweeters or buying a grill with tweeters instead of getting rid of guages?

Sound great those tweeters are actually the mates for my lowers speakers. The really come alive at high volume at high speeds

As for your tweeters, you can find a 1"-2" set & mount (drill hole) it in the corners of the stock inner fairing speaker housing. That's what I did. You might have to enlarge the pic to see the extra tweeter on the right side.

That right there is the way I will go ... no loss of gauge or another visible hole in the fairing. Thanks for the info.

That's pretty neat Q, I just bought another inner fairing that I have to cut the big(6.5) holes in, I may do that also, thanks for the idea. :)
