HELP: Rear Speakers 2000 Forester

Discussion in 'Subaru Forester' started by Howard R. Silverstein, Jun 27, 2004.

  1. I want to replace the rear speakers on my 2000 Subaru Forester. They
    are 5" speakers.
    Does anyone have a suggestion where I could purchase some decent 5"
    speakers ?
    I recently replaced the front ones (6 1/2") with Panasonic speakers.
    Please note: The rears are not 5 1/4" which is a standard size.

    Thanks !

    Have you tried the fitment calculator at one of the stereo sites like
    Crutchfield? Not that they are always accurate since they said I couldn't
    fit 6.5" Infinity's in my 04 OB. Don't be so sure you can't fit 5.25"
    speakers in your Forester.

    According to Crutchfield 5 1/4 inch won't fit. But I'm going to try one just
    to be sure. Crutchfield said that they don't carry "quality" 5 inch
    speakers. They suggested using 4 inch ones with a homemade adapter. Since
    I'm not handy I ruled that out.
