Is there really that much of a difference between getting 5x7 speakers or 6.5 speakers?
if it is better would something like this work?

1) Yes, I'd take a 6.5 over a 5x7.
2) That link is for an adaptor plate to a 6x8, not a 5x7 (just wanted to be sure you realized that). But yes, that is what you would look for.
3) Also look into 5x7 plate speakers. They are basically a component set pre-mounted to an adaptor plate. Generally not quite as high quality as an actual component set, but better than most oval shaped co-axials.Example for illustration purposes only (http://bostonacoustics.com/ca_product.asp?ProductID=264&CategoryID=14)
