If it is could I use spacers?
~I'd stay away from any odd sized speakers (6x9, 4x6, 5x7), they will throw the already bad staging off. I have never used Pioneer speakers so I don't know much about them BUT the 6.5" looks good if you can get them work! I haven't done surgery to my Bonne'* doors yet so for the mounting depth and spacers I don't know. I'm sure that someone else will pipe in here with the knowledge.

~ They might say the frequency response is 30Hz-32kHz but you also have to look at the +/- dB. This is just as important as the range or response. The Pioneer'* are probably 30Hz-32kHz +/- 3 dB which does not sound big BUT +/- 3 dB means there could be a range of 6 dB one frequency to another. This still does not seem that big but you have to remember for every 3 dB it is twice as loud. When you get into the higher end speakers they will have a +/- of 1 dB. I don't know the response of the speaker but I bet at lowest you will be able to cross them over at is 80Hz with a slope of 12 dB. I would not recommend going lower then 80 because then you will have a steeper slope. With the steeper slope they will not blend in with any sub(*) making the transition from sub to mid bad. Also they say 32kHz but the radio will only go to 16kHz and a CD 20kHz.
