Default stock speaker upgrade

I want to upgrade my WRX stock speakers. From various forums , I have narrowed the choice down to Kenwood Excelon Dual mags .. KFC-XR601 or similar components KFC-XR61P. Also, the Infinity Kappas 62.5i's. Just replacing fronts at this point. I have the door panels off and tried all the sets of speakers. What I find is that each one cannot sit 'flush' against the panel as the window glass hits it on the way down. The originals were the non-upgrade speakers from Subaru -->.

Anybody have experience with this for installation , wiring, using spacers etc ? Much appreciated.

Yeah, depending on the depth of your speakers you should have no problem using spacers. There really aren't many speakers that will fit the stock locations without some kind of spacer
