Default Adapting 4x6 fronts to 6 1/2"

Possible? I was chatting with some guys at work and they said it would be a no brainer for MOST CARS. Now, does the Bonneville fit under "most cars"?

let me get this right, you want to put 4*6 inch speaker where 6.5inch speakers are supposed to go?

IMO that is DUMB. 4*6 speakers cant perfrom anywhere 5.25 inch speaker let alone 6.5.

They didn't. Only thing I can think of (if it is an SSE/Ei) is somehow the interior panels got damaged and the only available replacments were the oval types.

Petra, check your RPO codes...kinda curious on this

Hmmm....maybe he is thinking about the 4x6 plates like Infinity has...incorporates a 4" driver and separate tweeter, which is a viable option if he has the 4x6 speakers stock.

Oh, sorry. I was at best buy and I looked up what my front door speakers were. It said 4x6. My question was if someone had cut the surrounds to make it a 6 1/2", not shrink it. But if I do have 5 1/4, I guess that'* not a problem
