Our take on the Infinity Kappa 682.11cf

by John Pollard
Infinity

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Legendary sound

Infinity's Kappa Series 682.11i 5"x7"/6"x8" speakers continue in the tradition of this legendary line of speakers, offering rugged construction and impressive sound quality. Once installed, these speakes will bring out every nuance and detail in your favorite music tracks, making time spent in your car seem more like a concert than a commute.

Large soft dome tweeters

If you're looking for natural-sounding high frequencies, Infinity uses edge-driven 1" soft dome tweeters in this system. The "edge-driven" design creates a larger tweeter that handles more power and delivers smooth response way down into midrange frequencies not covered by smaller "W"-shaped domes. You'll hear a more clearly defined soundstage where you can picture the placement of every instrument.

Infinity's UniPivot design allows you to aim each tweeter toward your ears, so you enjoy excellent stereo imaging even if the speakers are mounted way down low in your doors. Each tweeter also features a level control switch so you can boost the brightness to your taste.

Glass fiber woofer with Plus One+ technology

If you like bass, the Kappa glass fiber woofer holds its shape when the power's cranked up, so you still get punchy and defined bass. Glass fiber weighs less than traditional materials, so you don't need a ton of power to drive this woofer. Infinity's Plus One+ woofer technology extends the cone right up to the edge of the basket, giving you more surface area than with most comparable speakers. A bigger cone means more bass to complement the superior high-frequency response.

Great for any system

These 2-ohm speakers are sensitive enough that you can power them with an aftermarket stereo, but you'll get your best results feeding them plenty of power from an outboard amp — up to 100 watts RMS. Grilles are not included — factory grilles are appropriate for most installations.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Plus One Woofer Cones: The Plus One speaker cones offer more surface area than other speakers that fit in the same size opening. This is accomplished by using a new basket design and hi-roll surround. The result is greater bass output and a significant increase in efficiency.

Formed Glass Fiber Woofer Cones: This formed glass fiber material is very light and extremely stiff, minimizing cone flex. This results in very low distortion and improved clarity.

iCGM frames: The Kappa series speaker baskets are made of composite Injected Carbon Glass Matrix (iCGM). iCGM is lighter and stronger than stamped steel; it retains its shape, even when mounted on uneven surfaces (common in car mounting locations), plus offers exceptional damping of any resonances.

Edge Driven Dome Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1" Edge-driven textile soft dome tweeter. An edge-driven tweeter has better dispersion characteristics and allows for a lower crossover frequency than typical tweeters of the same size, which improves imaging. The result is improved vocals and musical clarity. The tweeter also has an adjustable output level, +0 dB (flat) and +3 dB.

UniPivot Tweeter: The tweeter is angled and can be rotated about 315° after installation. This allows you to direct the tweeters toward the listeners, very useful for speakers mounted low in a door.

High-Output Design: The high output 2-ohm voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring and extracts every watt from factory receivers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to 4 ohm speakers). The speaker's 2.0-ohm impedance combined with the impedance of your speaker wire provides a true 4-ohm load to your connected headunit or amplifier. The speakers also benefit from increased power when you upgrade the wire and add aftermarket amplifiers, designed to power a 2-ohm load.

Size: These speakers fit many 5x7 and 6x8 applications.

Terminals: The input terminals are gold-plated set screws that will accept up to 12 gauge bare wire.

Power Handling: Although Infinity lists the RMS power handling as 100 watts, they also list the recommended power range as 5-150 watts RMS. We've opted to list the more conservative 100 watt RMS figure on the specifications page.

Quick impressions from the Lab

Comment by Cooper Advisor,

Extremely accurate and efficient!

Written by Cooper, Advisor, on 2/18/2014 11:39:00 AM

I helped my best friend, a fellow advisor named Eli, install a pair of Infinity Kappas into his F-150. I was extremely impressed with the tight bass response along with the crystal clear mids and highs these were able to produce.

We used a Sound Ordnance M-4075 to power these as they do need more power than what a head-unit can produce. We tested bluegrass, rap, country, and rock music tracks once they were installed, and these speakers delivered amazing dynamics. After hearing them, I think these speakers are the best for your money, no doubt about it.

Former Infinity lover

Written By LoverofgreatQA, Fort Wayne, IN on Tuesday, July 08, 2014
 
I dunno, maybe it boils down to personal preference, but these speakers in my mind fall way short of Infinity's older line of speakers. I had 4 (5x7's) of Infinity's old titanium dome tweeter aluminum woofer design speakers, and they produced way better mids and highs than these do. These speakers to me, sound like factory no tweet speakers just amplified. There is no crispness to the highs, at all. You might as well not have any tweeters. Like I said, it might boil down to personal preference, but soft tweeters do not sound good to me, especially when you pair with a good pair of sub-woofers and amp. You need some good quality highs that are loud and crisp to balance some good bass. I have two of Infinity's top of the line subs that I am now trying to find a replacement for, because their subs stink now as well. They sounded good for 6 months, but now they are blown and sound like crap. Sad to say, Infinity's older aluminum coned subs were way better too. I had them for 6 years and they always sounded the same, awesome! Their subs are crap now too. I loved my Kenwood deck, with my Infinity speakers, and subs, but they redesigned and went totally downhill. I still have my old pair of Infinity 5x7's in my front doors because they sounded too good to get rid of. Now I thought about replacing them, but no one even makes a speaker as good with a titanium tweeter. This is a huge step back if you ask me, come on get it together car audio manufacturers!
Pros:
Fit great, look great
Cons:
Lackluster sound, no brightness to the highs. Good quality bass will drown these things out.

The difference is night and day

Written By John, Tomball, Tx on Thursday, July 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed these in my 2009 Ford F -150 Supercab, both front and back doors. Over the past few months I have researched many different speakers and had asked a lot of questions of the advisors at Crutchfield. I finally decided on these speakers when they went on sale, but after I installed them, I would have paid twice the price. Eventually I intend to upgrade the entire system, having talked with an advisor I started with the speakers, I can't believe the difference in quality of sound that this one upgrade has made. From rich bass to astonishingly clear high range all without flattening out as the volume increases, these speakers deliver, I cannot say enough good things about them. Along with their wide range of knowledge about all things high fidelity, Crutchfield's installation guide made the job of swapping the factory speakers for the upgrades so easy, it took me less than two hours. Between Infinity's top quality products and Crutchfield's knowledgeable and friendly staff, there is no reason why you have to suffer with inferior car audio. I can't wait to get the rest of the system upgraded.
Pros:
Awesome sound, easy installation, very reasonable price, awesome sound.
Cons:
I didn't buy them sooner

I'm very happy with the sound of these speakers. I replace the two in the door and the two in the rear deck. Much better highs and lows than stock.
Pros:
They do fit in the front door but you have to cut out the plastic alignments tabs for the stock speakers. I used a dremel and cut them out in less than a minute. All the screw holes lined up as well.
Cons:
none for me

Excellent sound for stock radio

Written By CmikeC99, Ohio on Friday, June 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed these in a 2012 F-150. They were direct fit replacements for stock. I used the treble boost and replaced all four doors at the same time. I really like the sync hands free calling so I elected not to replace my HU. I think the sound is really good for not using amplifiers or any other signal processing. I do plan to replace the tweeters in the "a-pillars" in the future and I think this will help as well. Be sure to purchase banana connectors for the screw in terminals as the OEM adapters sent by Crutchfield are spade connectors. I just cut them off and added the banana connectors. For as simple a process as this was, I think the sound improvement for the money is well spent!
Pros:
Sound quality, treble enhancement, direct fit
Cons:
Screw in connectors, not spades

The factory speakers in my 2013 Ford Edge sounded terrible. The Infinity Kappa 682.11cf made the factory system sound much better. Using the Bojo Trim Panel Tools helped remove the door panels, so I recommend them as well.
Pros:
Improved Clarity and bass.

Infinity 5x7 Kappa

Written By The Ace of Basd, Bel Air, MD on Friday, April 25, 2014
 
Putting 5x7 coax in the stock location of a ford van. Running 50-70watts to them off a new Alpine f300 and a Kenwood double din with Xm. I tried the Polk dbs, the Kenwood Excelon and the Jl audio but it wasn't until I found the Kappas was I able to seamlessly meet the alpine Type R 12" sub I had in the back. The Kappas go low enough and really kick so that it feels like I have all my bass in front of me. And the swivel tweeter allowed me to play with different positions until I finally got my soundstage up on top the dash instead of sounding like it was coming from the sides like the other speakers. They really are a quality product with a lot of versatility and great sound. I liken them to a set of $400 Boston Acoustic components I used to have. But those needed 300 watts and the infinitys only need 75.

Pros:
Fit perfectly in factory cut outs. Excellent feature is the adjustable angle of the tweeter . It allows the highs to travel at a 30 degree angle to listening level.

Infinity Kappa 5x7s

Written By Raptor Nine, Fort Collins, CO on Wednesday, April 02, 2014
 
Excellent speakers. I have these installed in an '03 Ford Ranger Super Cab and they rock! I listen to all genres of music and am pleased to say these are the best speakers I've owned. The highs are very clear and do not muddy until volume is well beyond a safe volume. The mids are well delivered for not being externally amplified. I only have a KDC-BT955HD head unit powering them. The lows leave something to be desired as with all unamplified speakers. I have them rounded out with an 8" JL Audio W3V3 subwoofer in a factory sealed box powered by an Alpine MRP-500 and the combination is perfect. Very highly recommended.
Pros:
Clear highs, powerful mids, excellent sound without an amplifier.
Cons:
My only con is the absent lows which could be fixed if I amplified the speakers.

Infinity good sound without amp

Written By Jeff r 2011 ford fx4 f-150 super crew, Wilmington, DE on Wednesday, January 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Speakers are very nice out of the box. It's kind of confusing with the adapter plates on the speakers, your not sure if they stay on or take them off because os the thickness of the originals. I chose to take them off. I did have to go out and buy a 5.5 mm socket for the speaker removal and install. I bought two sets for the front and back. Had to send one set back due to one speaker stopped working. Crutchfield is sending me another set. After the install of the front, wow what a difference between the front and the rear. Can't wait to install the rears when they come in. I am thinking of adding an amp if all goes well to boost the speakers as they should be heard. Be careful tightening the screws for the speaker wires. You have to cut the adapters that they provide to use on these speakers.
Pros:
Great sound out of these speakers even without an amplifier
Cons:
A little more depth for the install with these speakers in your ford f-150

WOW these Kappas ROCK!!!

Written By JetSetJoe, Brighton, MI on Monday, November 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The sound from the factory stereo system in my 2012 Ford Expedition EL was pathetic. So I spoke with Cooper at Crutchfield and I told him, "let's do the speakers first". He expressed some concerns about going with the 2 ohm Kappa speakers without an amplifier, but I assured him I would be adding an amp in a few months, and that it would be OK for a while. So I had the Kappa speakers installed, and I was very unhappy with the new sound. So 24 hours later, I installed an Alpine MRP-F450 amplifier that I bought from Crutchfield a few years ago. At 100W RMS x 4 @ 2 ohms, it was a PERFECT spec match for the 100W RMS 2 ohm Kappa speakers. Now it was time for a new sound check...and WOW!!!! I could not believe it was the same Kappa speakers. At both low and high volumes, the sound is so perfectly clear. And when you turn it up, oh boy. Real loud! I will be calling Cooper in a few months to order a double-din headunit that will retain my Ford Sync functions. Or heck maybe I will do it tomorrow!
Pros:
They sound magnificent.
Cons:
Absolutely must have an amplifier.

Don't try this at home

Written By Redneck Bob, The South on Sunday, November 03, 2013
 
I put these in my F350 and they sounded decent amped, then I completely dynamatted both doors and they sounded really good. The only thing missing was a nice, high sound stage and good imaging. The speakers in my truck are about knee height so it's tough to bring the sound up. I was gonna upgrade to a component set of these, but those run about $300! I decided to try something stupid and cheap instead. I pulled the stickers off the back of these, cut the little tweeter wire, pulled the tweeter off, and wired it back up with an extra 4 feet to play with. The tweeter wire was through a hole in the center of the speaker and the tweeter was just glued on, so it was a pretty simple job. I put the tweeters on my dash at the bottom corners of my windshield. I honestly thought it would sound terrible without a proper crossover, but it had the same good quality as before.The tweets were a little loud (closer to my head) so I just pushed the little -3dB button and they fell right in line. After testing some locations and angles, I now have a broad sound stage across my dash with the same great Infinity sound quality as always. You would be lucky to find a set of components that sound this good for less than $250. I say these are excellent speakers for the money. I am amazed that they sound so good even after what I did to them.
Pros:
Sound quality is very good for the price, they separate the instruments well, don't have harshness, can be turned into "components" by a redneck and sound even better, don't cause listening fatigue
Cons:
The voice range mid can get a bit peaky as is common for 5x7 , they need dynamat to stop resonance in some vehicles, can't be bridged on most 4 channel amps because of the 2 ohm impedence

Great Upgrade

Written By MattJ, Ashland, KY on Saturday, October 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I own a 2012 F=150 Super Crew, Replaced all 4 factory what they call speakers with these Infiniti's. AWESOME!! The sound is so much more crisp and clear, the low end isn't the greatest, but for a 6x8 you can't expect the world to change, but it's still a great upgrade. Also, when I received my speakers, one of the tweeters were broken, I called Crutchfield, they are wonderfully great! Within 5 minutes they had a replacement on it's way and completely hassle free. Thanks Crutchfield!!
Pros:
Great, period

Long term test

Written By Rex, Arkansas on Thursday, October 24, 2013
 
This is a long term review of these speakers from 4 years ago. They still had the glass woofer material and 2 ohm impedance but the tweeter was a metal dome instead of textile. I recently replaced the 10 year old infinity kappas with these 4 year old ones in my 2000 F350 with an amp. They still sound as good as when I bought them. They are so powerful that I had to dynamat all inside my doors because my door panel was bouncing on drum kicks. I added a sub and turned my high pass filter on these all the way up (120Hz), but they still put out a lot of bass. I got to listen to this new model and the new tweeter balances them out better, the sound is more natural and smooth. Infinity is great about giving you a good quality sound, like a home theater system. It sounds like my BMW stereo did except it's in a loud old farm truck, and I'm only running 3 speakers versus 11 in the BMW...
Pros:
Tough, sound ok with no amp, awesome with an amp, powerful enough to run without a sub and be decent
Cons:
Need dynamat if your car hasn't got good sound dampening

Was looking for something to take my Shaker 500 sound out of the stone ages. Sound was very muddy. Always liked Infinity solutions so thought I would give these a shot. WOW what a difference they made!!! I now have great highs and mids and even increased the bass quality quite a bit. I have and will continue to recommend these to anyone!
Pros:
Direct fit for Mustang 5x7 speakers in doors and rear deck, Drastically improved the sound quality, and can be used if I decide to go with custom amps down the road.
Cons:

Fantastic replacement for stock F-150 speakers

Written By Rob, Fredericksburg, VA on Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have a 2011 F-150 with Sync and wasnt sure whether to replace the speakers and add an amp later, or go with a helix or other system to optimize the sound from the stock system. I chose to start with these speakers, and it didn't disappoint. The muddy sound is gone, replaced by crisp smooth sound across the range! Next step: amp. But for now I am very about investing in these speakers.
Pros:
Excellent sound across the audio spectrum, suprisingly good even in the bass range. Highly recommended.
Cons:
None really. The speakers live up to my expectations. Instructions could be better for putting in the foam at the backside of the speaker, but thats not a big deal at all to me.

Nice easy fit , as usual with Crutchfield's recommendation. The sound I wonderful in my Mustang but unfortunately now I MUST replace the front speakers to balance out the prefect rear sound.
Pros:
Well built, easy fit, great sound! A huge upgrade from the OEM speakers.
Cons:
None yet. You will have to change/alter how the speaker wires hook up to this speaker since they don't have spade end terminals - they have hole inserts with screws to clamp down the wire. No big deal!

It's sad that you have to replace speakers in a $40,000 truck but we own 2 GM vehicles which made listening to these Ford made in China paper speakers unbearable so on to review I was told by Crutchfield not to buy these speakers if I was not going to amp them which I plan to do later and I always trust and listen to the Crutchfield reps but I have been checking on 6x8 speakers for over a year and had to buy these Infinitys and they are awesome and can't wait to amp them I put 4 in my crew cab and can't understand the people saying they don't have any bass compared to factory speakers they are so clear and have great mid bass with no amp I didn't increase tweeter db button, sorry Crutchfield but I promise I will amp them.
Pros:
Great clear unbelievable sound
Cons:
None, PERIOD

Installed fronts in my Mazda 3 during my lunch hour today. WOW, huge difference. Another set on order for the rear doors. Man the stock speakers are junk! :) Wow, Wow, Wow!!! Goes nice with my new Sony head, now to save up for the AMP and Dynamat and the little 3 will be rocking to RUSH on the USB stick twentyfour-seven :)

Great Speakers for the Price

Written By AnthonyC, Florida on Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great speakers for the $. They don't beat out some full component sets I have seen and owned.

They are enough to fill the cab of my F-150 XLT ext cab without using any rear speakers.

I would recommend them.
Pros:
Loud, clean, full lows and mids
Cons:
Highs are lacking and can be tinny at times

F150 FX2

Written By Jammer80, DFW, TX on Monday, May 06, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Sound quality is excellent when compared to factory speakers. These don't have quite the amount of bass as the factory speakers running off just the factory HU, but the quality of sound is 10x better than with factory. Maybe they need more time to "break-in" for some of the lower notes? Future plans are to run an amp to these to boost their sound. Going to install a small sub to take care of the lower notes.
Pros:
Great Mids and Highs Easy to Install
Cons:
Need to run these with an Amp to take full advantage of their capabilities

2012 F150 FX4 SCREW

Written By Bryan, West Palm Beach, FL on Saturday, April 27, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed 4 of these in my f150, one in each door. I find that these speakers needed a bit of a break in time. Bass is really good, they go pretty low for their size (6X8 in all 4 doors). Highs are nice, and have an adjustable tweeter (flat, or +3 dB). excellent upgrade from stock speakers. Running off stock head unit. Adding a 4 channel amp today to give them some extra juice. So far, so good.
Pros:
exact fit, Nice gold plated screw terminals for speaker wires, super easy install with the Crutchfield adapters
Cons:
None yet.

If you are looking for a 6x8 speaker that really rocks then buy these speakers. I am never happy truly satisfied and can normally find the smallest thing in a speaker to complain about but not with these. I have them connected to Rockford PBR 300 and they are thumping. Deep bass and solid highs . I promise you if you buy these speakers and power them right you will not be disappointed.
Pros:
Bass, highs, adjustable tweeter
Cons:
Cost but you get your money's worth.

Major Improvement!!

Written By onenotforgotten, Springfield, MO on Monday, April 08, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed these 6x8's in the front door of my 2013 Mustang GT. First off, they are a drastic improvement over the factory speakers (which sound as if the music is coming from inside a cardboard box). The highs are crisp and clear and the sound from the tweeters is made even better with the ability to swivel the tweeter head for improved imaging. The mid-range is also very clear. The speakers provide great sound at any volume with a variety of music genres. I can not speak to the bass level of these speakers as the factory Shaker 500 system splits the bass notes to the subwoofers mounted in the front doors. To Crutchfield's credit they did not provide fitment recommendations in the front door of the 2013 Mustang, and once I took the door panel off I could see why. However with a drill and a small drill bit I was still able to mount these speakers securely using the three factory mounting screws.
Pros:
Amazing highs with great clarity. Well built. Swiveling tweeter for better imaging. Tweeter strength adjustability using the button on the front of the tweeter.
Cons:
None.

Excellent Speakers

Written By Myles, Denver, PA on Wednesday, October 24, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've always been a fan of Infinity, but this is the first of their Kappa line that I've purchased. I normally use their "reference" line of speakers. These are definitely a step up from the reference series, and also a step up from most other speakers on the market.

The clarity of these particular speakers challenges even Focal speakers in my opinion. Also, they go low enough to present the bass in any music, though not to the point of thumping dubstep. The imagining is really awesome on these things, especially with well-recorded tracks. Listening to a good recording of almost any Jazz piece really shows the detail in your music.

The only thing I've noticed that I don't like is it sounds like the bass is emanating from the floor with these. It is probably just my car though... but it's still worth mentioning. While listening to a Miles Davis piece, the trumpets and sax were extremely clear, and the imagining was absolutely awesome. However, the lower jazz bass had less clear imaging, and sounded to be coming from beneath me. Despite that, it was still very clear on the bass, it just was harder to place in the sound stage.

Like I said, this is probably because of my car and how the sound resonates inside of it. Other than that (Very very minor tidbit) these things are outstanding.
Pros:
Awesome imaging, extremely clean and clear sound. Very detailed. They go low... 40hz is a reasonable rating. And they stay clean in the basses.
Cons:
Some bass instruments have 'bleh' and average imaging... possibly do to the resonance of my car.

I have these speakers installed in the stock location of the front doors of my 2008 Ford Taurus. Why do you advice they won' t fit? What am I unaware of? [ JOSE R  Jul 30, 2014 ]

  • We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Krissy Staff  Aug 06, 2014 ]
I talked with a tech a couple of months ago about upgrading my entire system, gave him certain parameters such as clean, crisp sound, no distortion, can handle Bach to Van Halen. What he suggested as far as speakers go were Focal ISS 570 and Focal ISC 570. I realize that the ISS570,s come with separate tweeters, despite that difference, how does this model Infinity stack up to the Focals. Better Bass? Better High range? Thanks for your help! [ John  Jun 03, 2014 ]

  • I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Product/CompareTo.aspx?compareItems=01|091ISC570&compareItems=01|10868211CF&compareItems=01|091ISS570&g=51900 From the specs you can see that the Infinity's have a lower bass response, for a more defined and clean bass response. The infinity's also have a 2ohm impedance which will cause the amp to push a little harder to them. In most cases that will result in a louder/cleaner sound at just about any volume. These would be a very competitive set of speakers to the Focal's, and possibly even a better selection. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Staff  Jun 04, 2014 ]
It has 2 Impedance. My ford escape has 4 Impedance stereo. But in this site, they say it is possible on my car. Is it safe for my receiver ? Somebody say that it is so critical choice. What is right ? I wanna know it. [ tai min  May 24, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • The high output 2-ohm voice coil design compensates for the high in-line resistance of small gauge factory wiring and extracts every watt from factory receivers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to 4 ohm speakers). The speaker's 2.0-ohm impedance combined with the impedance of your speaker wire provides a true 4-ohm load to your connected headunit or amplifier. The speakers also benefit from increased power when you upgrade the wire and add aftermarket amplifiers, designed to power a 2-ohm load. [ Jeff Staff  May 26, 2014 ]
Why won't these 6x8's fit in a 2011 F350 C/C? [ Sean  Jan 03, 2014 ]

  • For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on exactly why these speakers will not fit, and then discuss other options or modifications with you. [ Jeff Staff  Jan 03, 2014 ]
