Default speaker issues..

alright so im transferring my system from my recently deceased honda accord into my new bonneville ( 1993) and the speakers that fit apparently are 4x6" and 6x9".. i currently have 6.5" and 6x9", so my rear fit will be fine.. but what should i do with the 6.5" ? should i do a custom install in the front doors? or just buy 4x6" and use 4 channel amp for the amp and extra speakers?
if i had extra speakers in the car, where should i put them? how should i attempt to put these in the car? any suggestions lemme no.. thanks

no i would buy a good set of 4x6'* but i already have the 6.5" and theyre the ****, also i dont want to downgrade with wattage if u no what i mean.. it would be goin from 50 watts rms to about 20-30 in the front.. and goin from 200 max to only like 80.. it wouldnt be as good. im thinkin about just doin some custom work, possibly makin the hole in the door to fit 6.5" and custom mount the speakers and call it a day, i just dont no how much work thats goin to be

Dave...the part where the stock speaker mounts is removeable from the door panel....if you want to do custom 6.5'* make it easy on your self and get the other bottom part of the doors....it is a direct swap
