Thanks......witeshark, I also did this today.........

Got the rear Rockford's 2 days ago, a perfect fit in the stock OEM speaker box, 5.25" Rockford Power T152's 60watt (RMS) 120watt (PEAK). They make the OEM BMW paper cone speakers look like cheap garbage!




When I say perfect fit, I mean perfect......Depth & Diameter! Tight fit!





Now, I am just waiting for the Rockford Punch Front 5.25" speakers & top small tweeter for the door panels, special ordered the larger mid tweeter from partsexpress.com

Got the rest of my Rockford system today & installed my tweeters & mid-ranges in the door panels, the Rockford tweeter housings were slightly too small, to where you could see the indentation of the stock tweeter housing in the door panels, so I just mounted the Rockford tweeter into the OEM housing removed the Rockford logo & super glued to the stock housings!

Looks good! You'll have to take some video of the sound the exhaust makes.

The subaru is alright, I need to put some snow tires on it, these all weathers are worn and on snow last week it was sliding a lot more than I like. Probably won't put too much money into modding it, maybe a new set of summer tires/wheels but that's it. I'm hoping to get into a Ford Focus ST sometime next year after they come out if they aren't priced too high.

Update:

So as soon the warm weather starts again, one of the upgrades I will be doing, is replacing all 10 stock speakers & the stock Alpine amp.

I will be replacing the stock amp with this 300 watt 4 channel Rockford Fosgate Prime Amp. The amp listed on the Rockford site @ $229.99, I got it for $116.99
from J&R Music.com on Black Friday with free shipping! Also cleaned up rear deck speaker covers & added the Rockford emblems........
