if the aftermarkets dont fit....you need to lightly trim the plastic insert to make the speaker fit.

alot of the aftermarket speakers have a different design than the factory

You have to MAKE them fit. Yes, a little trimming is required.

I had to dremel mine as well to get the 6x9'* in there. You got the right size.

Me too. My aftermakets were a bit tight. I didn't have any tools for trimming during the install, so I brute-forced them in there...
