Speaker Grille Swap, Need Help!

So I recently installed new Pioneer's in my door panels, and they came with speaker grilles that were much nice than the P.O.S. stock ones in the door panel. I was wondering if and how I could put the new speaker grilles in the door panels?

You'll have to cut out the old one and all that it doesn't really look all that good to be honest with you but if its something you want to do go for it now the rear speakers looks good with the grille showing as long as you have tinted windows and nobody can see lol

yea, it really doesn't look as good as you are prob. thinking it will, you will need to cut out the door panel and fit the new grille in

I wanted to do this with my alpine speaker covers when I installed my speakers, but after looking at it and seeing what it would have taken I decided not to do. If done properly, with the right tools and with care it would probably look really good.
