Focal 165 CA1 speakers wont fit 1998 subaru legacy wagon

Our new focal 165 CA1 speakers do not fit the front door speaker hole by at least a half inch. The 1998 legacy wagon subaru speaker bracket will have to widened drastically or the door sheet metal will have to be cut back. What fun. Is there an aftermarket bracket that will fit or am I doomed to taking it to car toys to install at $80? Ideas?

SOURCE: Problem with focal k2 power and focal fiberglass speakers in car

It could be the setup of the speakers, but I would install a crossover equalizer for your situations. A crossover equalizer is supposed to automatically filter the necessary frequencies to the correct speakers. I have used no name and brand name XverEQs and they both worked the same for me. Along with this response I am assuming you also have Mids and Highs to go along with the woofers.

SOURCE: Im wondering on the best

Here's what one audiophile has for his super system:
In a car McIntosh 406 headunit ,Zapco Dc1000.4 amp + DC500 sub amp and Focal 165KRX3 + Focal 33WX2

Most audio installers know the best matches for various systems, so you should visit a couple. They're in touch with different systems and could recommend some for you, I'm sure.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

SOURCE: I need to know what

When putting in a good set up speakers like those, I always recommend:

Making mounting rings/plated for them
Sound Deadening Material to help seal the door up for better bass from the mids
Gasketing Foam to help decouple surfaces that may vibrate against each other
Duct tape
Good quality speaker wire.
