Same reason they use the integrated oval with climate controls and factory radio in one. So you will shell out mad stacks of cash for their muddy $20/speaker "mach" system rather than install your own superior and cost effective aftermarket setup.

You can cut small rings out of 1/2" MDF that will allow you to run a 6.5" component set in the front though.

As a side question. How do you remove the door speakers on a Gen4? Do you need to take the door panels off or can you just pop the grills off to take them out?

5x7's & 6x8's are the same size speaker, the mounting plate is just larger in the latter though.

Yes they will fit. jtkz13 is correct, they are the same size speaker with a larger mounting plate and both will fit in your car.

Get 6 X 8" speakers, they sound better.
