    Yes you can put speakers there, I have 6.5" in mine. Just have to make sure the mounting depth of the speaker isn't too deep.

    I fit 6x9s in mine. They just barely fit. Depth was no problem on mine.

    I drilled a hole in mine with a step bit that went to 1 1/4 so I could see in, then cut with a cordless jigsaw. Be careful, the wires going to done light and maybe brake lights? Is back there, I think that was on driver side. I taped them out of the way while cutting. If u go 6x9, check top and bottom hight, they just barely fit between the belt area and whatever metal was above the speaker.

    What size hole saw for the 6.5" speaker's? I have 6.5" and 4" pioneer pair's on order. Hope the slightly extended 2way speakers don't have a clearance issue under the factory dash metal mesh cover.

    Speakers should come with a template. I would try to stick with a basic size speaker incase you ever have to replace one or both and have a strange size hole to recut for replacement speakers. Also get some insulation to fill in the post area behind the speaker. Probably will help the sound not be so hollow. I also am not sure if your seatbelts on that year will bang your speakers after time. Something to think about.

    Your right they do come with a cutout template on box face palm! Installing pioneer ts-g1644r 250w/40w (rms) They require 5" cutout for flush mount, and they do include covers to protect from the wind whipping seatbelt buckle. I had speakers in the door of my 93' and had problems with the wire getting cut in the door jam. Removed them and had a big ugly hole there. Bought 6.5" foam "boom mat" baffles for mid bass so I shouldn't need to pack insulation, but we'll see...
