I know I saw a while back people running 6x9's, I think the thing to watch out for is the depth more than anything, larger speakers tend to also be deeper. I can't see why an 8" round wouldn't fit but it would have to be very shallow, or you'd have to keep the windows up.

my question is why would you want bigger. you subs handle the bass so i dont see an advantage if running more than 4 mids or highs.
Its more about sound quality and producing good mid-bass. If you try to make your subs play the mid-bass its obvious that its coming from the rear of the car and could be muffled and/or out of time alignment with the music that the front speakers are playing.

A lot of 6.5"s stuggle to put out some serious midbass thump, the bigger the speaker the easier (and usually cheaper) it is to do.

After looking. I think I could have stuffed an 8" speaker in the door. The issue is with the backspacing and having to use thick spacers and modify the door panel.

Instead I just got some 6.5's I'll try them first.

i had a 8 in the front doors with a wood ring (spacer) behind the speaker. i did have to cut the metal a bit since i was using a 8'' bayma. the magnet was hitting a bit. but once i put the panel back on it looked stock.

a high wattage 6.5 will accomplish that better
