Thanks for the help.

PS any mods to install the kappas? Or are they like the alpine as well
This version of kappas went in with no issues, but not sure if the are still using the smaller neodymium magnets. That can present a problem. The metal behind the speaker (actual door) is sloped and doesnt allow for oversized magnets like MB Quartz and some others.

No more than 2 " depth and you are safe. Width I don't have an exact measurement, but the Alpines fit just right.

The Alpine sound better imo as they are not as tinny and harsh on the highs. I used the same amp to drive both and no issues with a 4 x 75, 1 x 300 watt split Alpine amp.

Plus at half the cost you can replace all 4 speakers ( I highly recommend matching them) for the price on 2 infinity.

I am still in search of a little bit warmer texture, but for the price they are my favorite since they sound better then most speakers double their price if powered correctly.
2013 S4 Loaded (and NO RFT's) Awesome is an understatement
