    Should be fine, I did my drivers side first, then injured myself, so was a month later after surgery that the other one went in. Don't even try to judge the sound until both are in, when I put in the drivers side, I kept saying, they sound just like the stock ones, but after the passedger side one was in I could hear the difference. I had the same problems with getting the door panel on the drivers side, but on the pass side I did the speaker and had it all back together in less than a hour. I found if you put all the hooks in first, then lift the panel up just until it clears the top area the panel needs to hook over and give it a few taps and it will all slide in place.

    As far as I know they all are except the infinity's. There are some orion 2ohm 6.5's that were available and I think Orion has 3ohm 6.5's. Let me know too if you find any, I'm going to replace the sail panel speakers too. It gets to a point, there isn't much to go with replacing the stock ones, is better Idea to just go with a amp and skip the Monsoon, but I am happy with the sound now and is plenty with the subs.

    Would the 62.7 or 63.7 sound good in the sub local as long as you wired in the tweeter into the back hatch area or front area speakers?

    I am thinking about doing that, wiring the tweeter to the far rear hatch speaker and not even using the hatch speaker anymore. Even with Pioneer 4inch speakers in the back hatch of my car, they are the weakest sounding now and the little woofer on them bottom out so fast they actually make the sound worse, a bigger speaker or using a tweeter in place of them I think would sound much better. When you remove the back seat subs, it is easy to work in there and you could add some filler to make the space smaller. When I removed 1 of my sailpanel subs, there was a big area overall in there, so adding some sound deadening to make the space smaller should make the sound better. After the 62.7i's up front, I tuned all the speakers with my HU and noticed the sound is just as good when the sailpanel subs are not even playing. I played it with just the front speakers and the 2 10's I have in my car and overall it sounded very good. The sailpanel stock subs really don't put out much and takes almost 3/4 volume just to get them to start moving. I thought they were not working a few times and had to touch them to feel them working.

    One thing I'm noticing in trying to compare the speakers is that the source of the music is very variable as far as sound quality go. The radio can have some signal deterioration in it that can affect the sound quality and different songs can sound different in different speakers.So it's going to be a while before I will feel like I have a good review of my new Infinity's but I would say( on first impression)that the factory door speakers are" boomy" and the Infinity's have a more refined sound.I've always felt the factory stereo was too boomy so refined is a good thing.I'll keep listening and evaluating so stay tuned.

    Good to hear... I am now thinking about ordering another set and using them for the sailpanel, then just wiring the far rear wiring to the tweeter. I should decide in next day or so and then will order them. I think it would sound pretty good.
