You make just about any speaker fit in the openings on our cars. Just get some MDF and make a buildout to mount the speaker to, then mount the buildout to the original speaker frame.

Exactly. I have 5 1/4" componets in my front door. I would recommend using a round speaker in any front stage application. Hell, most of the time the rounds are less exspensive than the 6x8's. The other option other than MDF is masonite(sp). It is thinner, less weight and cheaper.
I agree. I prefer round speakers over oval shaped ones. I will be placing 6.5" speakers in my doors in the next couple weeks, and they will probably eventually end up in kicks.

J/K why do you prefer round vs. oval speakers?
Round cones are more rigid than oval shaped ones, therefore they will distort less at higher volumes. The only real advantage to oval speakers, specifically large ones like 6x9s is that they produce higher sound pressure levels.

They are pretty noticable if you're running a decent amount of power to them. Thats the reason why all high end car audio speakers are round - and if you ever open up any other loudspeaker (home theatre, proffesional, dj, whatever) the cones are going to be round. They produce a better sound that oval shaped ones. The only reason oval shaped speakers exist is because car manufacures can utilize more area in the vehicle to put a speaker in and produce higher spl's.
