Default Aurora-front speakers

the front doors on my Aurora are nearly identical to those of the Bonneville, so, I would like to get the help of some of you audio experts here. I would like to install the Infinity Kappa Perfects in my car but I'm running into problems. The problem is that the speaker mount does not have hardly any room around it so the heavy, deep basket of the Infinity probably will not fit. I used some generic audiovox 6.5" woofers just to test fitment and I did indeed have to cut parts of the door panel. My main concern are those 7 little bulges on the sides of the speaker mount. The Infinity woofer has a lip on it that is supposed to seal around the edge of the speaker mount, but, those bulges wouldn't allow that to happen. So should I find something to grind those sides down, or what? The speaker mount also is not exactly a perfect circle so I'm really afraid of not getting a good seal. the stock speaker had some foam to seal it up. here'* a few various pictures of the door panel I'm working with, and stock speakers for comparison. The speakers are said to be 6 3/4" according to all vehicle fit guides, but the stock speaker measures exactly 6.5" across its diameter.

I'm not real good with fabricating stuff so I'm really not sure what I should do. Any suggestions about any of this?

they look like a bottom mount so if u could make them a top mount it would give u a lil bit more depth clearence.

Noper. no-can-do. The speaker mount and grill that you see on the front of the door panel are all molded together. The speaker will have to be bottom mounted. :(

Dremel + grill/speaker mount = seperated grill....

Not quite sure how you're saying the bulges will stop it from sealing?

One thing i've used as a great gasket for speakers (if you can call it a gasket) is the weather molding for homes. It'* D shaped, and the flat part has a sticky side.
