6.5" Door speakers that actually fit mounted into my door?

I am having trouble getting aftermarket 6.5 " speakers to fit in the door of my stang. The magnets on the backs of most mustangs are too deep and rub the window when it is all the way down. I tried cutting a hole in the speaker grill and seating in the speakers over them to get some extra space and it worked, but the door panel now keeps coming loose. The black screws on the back of the door panel that keep the door panel tightly into the door don't reach as easily.

Has anyone been able to locate speakers that will fit into the hole and actually be mounted into the door and now into the plastic grill? All suggestions are welcome.

it is not the depth of most speakers that is the problem, it is the size of the magnets, most aftermarket speakers are not much deeper than factory, if you don't count the huge, useless magnets on them...... nobody needs a 10 oz magnet on a 6.5" speaker............large magnets are required to move the voicecoil in the speaker extreme amounts for maximum excursion, somebody (back in the early 90's) decided that like all other things, that bigger is better, well, if manufacturers would go back to paper cones, with foam surrounds, it would take a lot less energy to move the cones..... thus smaller magnets, and less watts

i have alpine speakers in mine, not sure what model but they were installed by the previous owner. and paper cone speakers suck, they dont last as long nor sound as good.

Why drive a Prius when you can have a Fiesta!!
