what kind of adapters are you talkin about? most of the ones i have seen are made from 1/8" plastic
They're all made from plastic It was either Stinger, American International or Metra or one of those companies that has a thinner design. I will probably keep my SEL more stock then I had originally planned so I will probably use them instead of using 10" woofers. When I find them I'll post a make and part number for you

I believe Gen2 1992-1995 The front door speakers are 5.25 only because I got 6.5 and they didnt fit correctly 5.25 fit nice and I only had to drill 2 holes in the speaker mount

They might, but you either have to make or buy and adapter for it since the stock speakers are elliptical.

I managed to get 6.5" round speakers in my G2 with no problem:

I used to work for the company that made the JBL Systems as well as most of Ford's conventional speakers.

The stock door speakers in the Gen1-2 Tauri were 5 1/4" as that was the industry standard size round speaker until the 6" round became popular in 1990's. A 6" or 6.5" should fit; you also have to be concerned with speaker depth in a door application. That's why bass is usually lacking from door speakers because a shallow speaker can't move much air unless it has more surface area....like a 6x9 or 5.5.x 7.5. Packaging concerns (space) always dictate which size speaker goes where. Matsu****a/Panasonic used to make a nice long throw 5 1/4" OEM coax which was actually used as the door speaker in the FN-9 Lincoln Continental JBL system for awhile. That speaker had some pretty good punch for a 5 1/4" because it was deeper. Branding is everything. ;o)

I can remember seeing the first mock ups of the MN-12 T-Bird Cougar 10 Liter JBL Subwoofers. I still can't believe those monstrosities were ever used in an OEM application. The Assembly Division wasn't too keen on them but Ford Audio wanted them at the time. Those had a 6" or 6.5" long throw woofer. A giant PIA especially considering you can get just about as much low end from a good pair of 6x9's.... especially with vehicle specific EQ.

Original post updated... lol.

Is there any reason why I thought 2000 had a sub? I've never seen this before. I was like 19 when I wrote this post.

05 Lincoln LS V8 - black/black, tints, stock (for now).

99 Mercury Sable LS (retired) - green/gray, Duratec, 135000 mi, G4 Taurus wheels, stereo, 11.6" brakes, clear corners, stack of parts in the garage and endless list of repairs.

Will these work to install 6.5's in the front doors of my 98? - Anyone had success with 6.5's in a 98?
