Hey Dude,

With your speakers, IF the E series use the standard 5x7 speakers that the AU's and the BA's have then yes they should fit. Some are actually bigger than others, so minor filing may be required but i know for a fact my Alpine 6.5" fit right in my BA without any modification cuz i put them in myself.

As for the brand, ive never dealt with them so i can't really offer an opinion on those.

Good Luck,

No they dont use 5x7s.
They use 6" speakers. 90% of the time 6.5"s will fit without any modifying.
Those speakers are both coaxials, why not get a set of components?

Coaxials have the tweeter mounted thru the centre of the cone. Components/splits have the tweeter separate from the mid speaker. Components are better.

basically, components will punch out way more than coaxial. most people who do audio, like myself, put components up front and coaxials in the rear parcel shelf. the advantage of components is that you get a much crisper sound, and both the tweeter and the dome dont need to work as hard as a coaxial system.

depends as someone said earlier, 90% of 6.5's will fit. i've got 6.5's in my rears with a bit of modifications to fit. pioneer, clarion, kenwood, all the big names should fit.

not sure. but if they dont fit straight in, all you will need is a 10mm spacer. at the moment i've got infinity 6.5's in the rear and all i needed is a tiny spacer to elevate it so the rim would fit.

I've got some Infinity Reference Series components up front, and they fit fine. Top quality speakers too.

Coaxial rear, component front, and if you use an amp, amp the fronts :)

personal preference. you can have either. personally, i think if its not going into autosalon anytime soon, and you arent huge on your precise precision of tweeters, i personally think its a waste of time in the rears. up to you though.

true, got reference coaxials in the rears. need to be lifted like 10mm to fit. very wide speakers. but absolute kick a**
