    They ARE 165mm (not 16.5mm lol)

    Best bit of advice i can give you is DO NOT buy the plastic adaptors from halfords, they don't fit properly and break quickly. Buy MDF rings off ebay and use those.

    I've got an alpine mrv f345 4 channel amp lying about sure could do a deal if interested. Its a cracking amp my mate uses the same amp in his lexus and sounds good. He uses it to power front and rear alpine type r's. I was gonna use it in mine but not bothering with the speaker upgrade now.

    Someone will prob explain it better with watts and that but need a mono amp for the sub and you need a channel amp for the speakers. With the speakers to run front and rear you need a 4 channel amp but if you have a decent headunit you can run the 6x9s off the headunit and fronts off a 2 channel amp or vice versa just depends how many watts is needed to power them as dont want to under power as will sound no good and you can over power them and break them. It all depends on what watt the speakers are.
