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

i was going to ask the same thing, i found some adapters on ebay, but i dont think we will have the clearance to use them, so im going to just get new speakers.

so i will have to cut the door some to fit the 6x9's in?

When i took my door panels off on my 2001 mine had 5x8's, front and back doors.

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.
