    Is it possible to put 6x9 speaker in a 6x8 baffle?

    In my car the stock size is 6x8 I was wondering if there's a way to put 6x9 somehow?

    haha can a square fit in a round hole? reverse mount the 6x9's? that'll look crappy but......... i'd fit a pair of 6" splits or coax in a 6x8 spacer plate. (heads up 6x9's ****)

    The real question is why? Yea if anything you should be making 6.5s fit in the 6x8 hole

    You'd have to do some cutting or build spacers. And if you're having to go to that trouble... think 8".

    The main reason is a wider selection of 6.5" speakers. Sometimes it's followed up with or replaced by the myth that you have to have a round speaker to get good sound quality, which is bogus.

    6x9s are quite a bit bigger than 6x8s. Also, your mounting depth is likely a problem for fitting a 6x9.
