nope ya can't go much bigger then that 5.5 in the factory place....to close to the edge and you'd be cutting into the door glove box....I want to go bigger also....had to some cutting just to put the 5.5 in......

and the 5.5 to me are too big
they stick out of the factory curved edge just a tad bit...
used a drumell tool to cut the spot out no fiber glass just factory panel...

to me components are over rated for the price..
ya can get a crossover for half/quarter the price of those..yet there good but overly priced for me and its about the same thing.....

There's really no need to go bigger than 6.5 IMO. Get high quality speakers instead.

8 are great for mids.... But to small for subs...6 are good but just don't quite get the range....there an in between speaker
listeners preference.....

Get a filter instead for the subs....and that's about the Hz range ya want...lower your going into the mid and bass range then..and missing the crispiness of the music...
I maybe wrong it's been a bit since I tinkered with the amps crossovers...
I think I'm at 60-120hz for highs and 33hz for the lows...
