My Infinity speakers had the four mounting holes that lined up with the door panel mounting holes... but also had four "extra" mounting tabs for some reason. They would not sit flush in the 6x8 opening with those tabs.

I looked at a picture of your new speakers and it appears they also have "extra tabs" protruding out of them on the long sides.

I don't want to make a wrong assumption since I don't have a Shaker system, but I would guess those two tabs are preventing you from getting them in flush.
