the box wont fit on the rear shelf plus it blocks my view....and they dont fit origonal holes....so does that mean i cant use them?

you can modify the original holes

yea, just get a jigsaw and cut open the hole..or you can return them and get the correct size for the opening:)

Your openings are likely for 5x7's or some other goofy size. Either cut bigger holes as suggested or drill new mounting holes for your 6x9's with the tweet/mid centered in the factory opening. Sound deaden the metal and mount 'em. As long as your mid and tweet have a clear path you won't lose much (if any) sound from the woofer unless the factory opening is dinky (like 4" or smaller). If the opening is too big then make a baffle (adapter) from MDF.
