yeah you have to cut out the hole a little bit in the front. The backs a little bit harder because the speaker is mounted different so it makes for a harder cut its mounted on like a ridge and you have to cut down it kinda to make it fit. But it works

you can just get a nice 6.5 comp set and be much happier, sound will be better, louder, clearer, mids will be deaper, etc

I do recommend the Component set as well . But for someone to say they are louder than 6x9's is completly False .

you have got to be high to say that x9's sound better than component sets, they require slight mod to fit but thats just making a plate as the stock size is 5x7/6x8, they allow crisper higher sounds, and allow you to position the sound for better staging

No , you said LOUDER . Yes a Component set will sound better , but you said they would be Louder and that is false . Not only are components better for Staging , but for Imaging and overall Tonal Balance as well .
