Nearest hardwhare store, and get 1/4" plywood. Make your own if you have the tools.

you could easily fit 6.5" speakers in the 6x8 spot, and 5.25" speakers in the 5x7 spot.

Try crutchfield for some adapter plates.

when i installed my MBQs i couldnt for the life of me find a 6x9 to 6.5 adapter plate, so i had to glass 1 up

Buy a rotozip and make your own, + new tools = good.

i would go with the pioneer tsd 170r (the rev series, yellow cones). those will smoke the JL coaxials. if you want something with a lot of midbass, i would go with the zapco iforce speakers. those will both be in your price range.

take your speaker and trace it and make sure to trace the inside of the holes too. then cut it out, and trace that one and then you have two of them. cut the hole in one of them for a 6.5" and then trace that on the other template, then you have two matching plates. i would use wood or something strong too by the way.
