    They are indeed 6.5" front mids, that is a Focal Utopia 6.5" Mid from the Mark 1 Utopia set.

    I didn't have any issues with the mounting depth of the Focal Mid.

    What I would say though is that it is a major PITA to get decent speaker runs in to the mids. The stock door loom is on a plug, so where it joins the bodywork it is a plug and socket arrangement.

    If you look at that thread you can see how I had to get the cables into the door, I ended up bringing them out of the grommet above the plug and socket arrangement and then cut back a bit of the plastic surround on the plug so that I could fish the cable in with the plugs loom into the door.

    Thanks guys, I thought they might be. I have a set of Crystal 6.5s kicking about, I might try getting them in or try some Rainbows/DLS/Genesis etc.
