The fronts will most likely need spacers. I have two sets (front and rear) of the db series and they are pretty nice. The MM series is much better.

I have the MM6501 installed in the front doors of my 2002 WRX. I didn't use spacers and just drilled them straight to the doors. They are pretty slim due to the neodymium magnets but the windows do hit them when you roll them down. I would say the window sticks up out of the door about 1 inch before they hit the magnets.

If you don't want your windows to hit, you should get spacers. I got a set of spacers from PVC Speaker Adapters - CNC Machined - In Stock or Custom Made that I haven't used if you would like to buy them.

As far as the tweeter goes, I mounted it in my stock location. No additional hardware needed.

I'm also currently installing a set of MM521 in the rear doors, but I will need to cut out some of the door to get the speaker to fit.

I have Infinity Ref 6 1/2 up front. Required a spacer for sure because they didn't have the shallow mount ones available when I bought them.
