Howdy all, I've been driving my new STi for a few weeks now, and I think I'm ready to put together the stereo for it. I'm looking at Infinity for all the speakers with Reference 5000cs Refs for the fronts, and Reference 5002i Refs for the rear. I've been trying to take in as much info from these and other forums, and talked to a few friends as well as folks a few local large chains, and these seem like the best bet, especially for the price offered. Anyone have any input on these?

Along with that, I'm also trying to figure out if my current head unit, a Pioneer DEH-P6000, can drive them out of the box, or if I'll need to get additional hardware to make them work properly. Anyone have this HU, and use it with speakers like this, or have these speakers and know what kind of power they need to sound good? I know even less about amps and whatnot, so any tips on what to get if I do need one would also be much appriciated.

Finally, after reading what seems like a hundred threads on speaker installs, I'm pretty nervous to do it myself. The most I've done is install a HU in my old Golf, so I'm a bit green. I have taken the door trim apart on my STi already (also managed to break the trim surrounding the door handle, oops :mad:), as well as the entire center console, so the only thing that really scares me is if the wiring is overly complicated, or if I need to make spacers or anything to install the speakers. Has anyone had experience installing these speakers, and can you speak on the difficulties, if any, you encountered with them? Thanks for any help you folks can provide!

Re: Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet!

Any details on the spacers needed? Price, where you got them, that sort of thing? I got the Infinity 5002i's for the rear, which are 5 1/4s, hopefully they'll also fit.

i went to circuit city and their install dept had a bunch, cost like 15 for a pair, you will need to drill unless you get adapter plates.

good luck mounting those crossovers, the person who did mine ended up mounting them under the dash, and using the factory speaker wires for the tweeter, and ran his own speaker wires into the door for the woofer.
