I know the factory speakers are 5x7", but I have been discussion of the ability to fit 6x9" speakers into the rear of an AU ute.

Can someone confirm that these are the correct adapters:

And will the 6x9" still fit under the factory speaker grills?

I run 5x7's but I'm pretty sure if you point them in the right direction they will fit behind the grill. Hope this helps.

So your aftermarket 5x7" don't fit behind the factory grill?

yes they do just fine, but they are 5x7. 6x9 might be pushing it. If you use an adapter it pushes the speaker out further into the grille which works against you. you would need a new backing plate I think, they're only a sheet of steel anyway.
