This is a topic that hasn't been repeated for a good five minutes, so figured it was about time to have a go myself. Full disclosure, I know next to nothing about car audio, so forgive any amateur questions.
I have a pair of the MK1 Metro door pockets, as per the picture below from another thread (apologies for blatant theft - I will stop being lazy and take my own picture if anyone is furious).
Now obviously the range of 10cm / 4" speaker choices is going to be pretty limited due to the lack of depth in a standard door pocket, but given the threads I can find on this are quite a number of years old by now (and only one mentions a speaker choice), I was wondering if anyone had good recommendations for some quality speakers that would fit (without any door card or door skin chopping)?
I am prepared to spend a good amount of money if required. I see little point in cheaping out given these chaps are going to be constrained to start with due to the space - most seem a little too cheap to be decent to be honest!
43cm seems like a common mounting depth, which I think would just about fit (the profile of the pocket is curved, so tricky to measure). I've had a look at the Pioneer range - namely, TS-G1030F (3 way coax), TS-G1020F (2 way coax) and TS-G1010F (dual cone).
I would imagine the TS-G1030F is going to be superior to the TS-G1020F - the only problem I have with these two is how much the mid section protrudes from the cone itself. There really isn't a great deal of space in the pocket and there would need to be some clearance left for when the music gets cranking. Having attempted to measure, the centre clearance from the top of mounting holes to the back side of the pocket is around 10mm - would this be enough?
If not, that would leave the choice of the TS-G1010F, which obviously comes with its own drawbacks with just being a dual cone jobbie (and looks a bit crap with the silver bits, but I suppose you don't see them).
Any advice or alternative options would be greatly appreciated.
