The tension spring is behind where the speakers go, I need to take some measurements and see what kind of room I have for a box.

I don't think that any gen 4's came with a sub.
They have the mach package that has no sub.

they will fit easily with little modification, but they won't drop in directly the easiest way is to mount them from behind the rear deck panel. as others have warned you may need to pay attention to where the springs are that hold up the trunk for clearance. you will have to drill new holes and use new screws to hold them in place. does anyone have a picture of a 6x9 install from the rear they could post?

to install them from the front you will have to cut the speaker slot larger, that's a bit trickier of an installation.

The best way is to get a standard 6X8 (or 5X7) to 6X9 adapter.

Also the first post is wrong regarding the Mach tweeter size. It's 2" not 1" and has a 2" depth

The problem with an adapter is that the carpet covering the rear parcel shelf will not allow for top mounting a taller speaker. Really, the only ways to do it are to bottom mount it, or dremel the holes out.

That was the case with the older adapters. The newer ones are usually only around an inch thick, but since you don't top mount when using an adapter it's not really an issue

It would be easier to just dremel the parcel cover a little bit or add a XTC cover to it
