go with a 6.5in, rounds produce much better sound. I used a plexiglass plate cut to adapt.

I think that the 5x7 and 6x8 are essentially the same size. Could be wrong, but I do know that 6x9's are much bigger. I would be more concerned about the depth of the speaker and wether or not it will allow the window to operate properly. Before you cut anything, try measuring for depth.
