Alpine SPR-50c in a fox body?

Just recently got all new equipment for my stangs audio. What I have is Alpine PDX-V9, 1 Image Dynamics IDMAX 12D2 V.4, set of alpine SPR-50C components for the doors and in dash.

I have already pulled everything from the stock system. Checking the fitment today I noticed the woofers are too deep on the 5.25 fronts. Top mount depth is 2 1/4". I know this is a bit more than the max (I believe 2 1/8").

If I go out tomorrow and get a 1/4 or 1/2" baffle made will I still clear the speaker grill on the door panel? Anyone have experience with this? What are my options (besides returning these and downgrading to shallow mounts)?

I had a similar issue with my 09 components but when i removed the door panel there was enough plastic to shave down for the speaker to clear the grille and not rub on it. I would check if maybe you can grind some plastic or metal down.

I need at least 1/4" to clear the magnet and hopefully that won't rub. I just got some speaker rings by metro and those were to big for the speakers. They don't make 5 1/4 spacers so looks like I'll be fab something up
