    Get crappy stock size... (please never do this)
    Make the crappy stock size smaller so it is atleast round!
    Make a fiberglass speaker pod...
    Make a fiberglass kick panel!
    BOTH... This is tricky though due to different distances from your ear type deal... you need to hire an engineer for this one and you need some $$$... or just live with the consequences... I would say just do one or the other (speaker pod or kicks)

    Depending on how lazy you are and how much money you are willing to spend... there is an option for everyone
