Top mount depth for 2013 Mustang

Im looking to replace the front speakers in my '13 GT with the base radio. I have a set of Infinity Kappa 682.9cf speakers I had in my Fox and was wondering if these would work in the '13.

I went on Crutchfield and they said they wouldn't work for the front but a set of Infinity Kappa 682.11cf will work. They have a top mount of 2 3/8 compared to 2 7/16. Is the extra 1/16" going to make a difference? I haven't taken the door panel off to see how close things are in there.

Thanks for the help guys.

I'm wondering the same. I just looked on Crutchfield and they said the 682.11cf is NOT recommended for the 2013 Mustang. It doesn't show to fit the rear deck. I have a 2014 premium with the Shaker sound system. I've already replaced the fronts with some Infinity's, but want to install the 682.11cf's. Has anyone placed these in their doors and did they fit perfectly? By the way, I do have the spacers that allow the 5x7s to fit.

Do you have the premium or base model and what year?

I finally installed my pair of Infinity Kappa 682.11cf's in the front doors. I had to modify the spacers to allow the speaker to fit flush. I had a pair of Infinity Reference 6832cf's in the front doors but moved them to the rear deck. It's a 100% improvement over the stock speakers.

What did you have to do to the Ford spacers to make them work?
I am considering the same speakers for my 2014 GT Premium.

I have a '13 premium GT and I ordered a pair of speaker adapters from a Tousley Ford. I didn't have to modify them though. All I did was break the tabs off of the ends of my c2-570xs speakers and they fit perfectly. The tabs are already scored and designed to be broken off if needed.

How badly did the 4 ohm JL's affect the volume output of the Shaker system compared to the 2 ohm factory speakers? I know that it takes a 10x increase in amplifier power to double the volume, but it still seems to me that cutting the amps output in half would not be a good thing.

I can't answer that question because I installed a 4 channel amp to run my JL door and rear deck speakers. However, I did keep the factory door subs running on the factory amp. I heard that Infinity was the only company offering a 2 ohm replacement speaker. Not sure which model though.
