Speakers in Rear Soundbar

Has anyone installed 6 1/2" speakers in their TJ soundbar? It's made for 5 1/4 but I've heard that 6 1/2 sometimes fit with no modification. I've got 5 1/4 Boston Acoustics in the sound bar now that I'm going to move to the front to replace the 4x6s in the dash.

My 6.5" speakers fit perfectly without any trimming of the factory soundbar needed. Just avoid the less commonly found 'S' version of 6.5" speakers that have a deeper magnet housing which won't fit.
When you have a choice, buy American.
