i think only 6" speakers fit perfectly into the existing hole. I have 6.5" but i haven't put them in because i gotta need a bigger hole. you could just get an MDF board cut a bigger hole and stack it on top of the exisiting hole...should fit so long as the magnet is not so big.

6.5" splits can fit on the front door 6" holes.

Just depends on the brand and model...otherwise the existing hole will need to be modified which dont worry it is a piece of piss to do otherwise a 9mm spacer will make it work without modifying the hole...again this is dependant of the make n model of the speaker....let us know what ya planning to install to give a you a better idea.

Pioneer as far as i know won't fit the standard holes....but not 100% sure

if u want to overcome this you can just get 9mm mdf board...and make your own spacer...or go out and buy one. should fit easily and the door trim should fit on without any mods.
