As was mentioned by another buyer: THESE ARE NOT 6-1/2" SPEAKERS! "GET OUT THE SAW"!!!!!! OK, got that out our the way. ;). I ordered a set of these to put in my friend's boat. Since I had a bad speaker in my old F-150, I decided to order two sets. I cut his holes bigger and installed his speakers first. WOW! What sound!!!! I was impressed. I did notice what appeared to be the corner of an amp as I peeked through one of the speaker holes.

So i used Coreldraw and made some circles at different sizes and printed and cut them out. 5.75" was perfect. Speakers slid right in. I had to cut out the previous speaker hole since it was too small too but went fine. These are 4 ohm speakers so make sure you can run them if mixing with 8 ohm speakers. If so you need to run each on its own channel. Turned on the radio and sounded pretty decent. So lets see how they do out in the water. Thirdly - So back to this warranty card.
