6 1/2" Speaker With 5 1/4" magnet?

Do any 6 1/2" speakers fit into the 5 1/4" sound bar slots? I heard there are a few out there with the magnet the same size as a 5 1/4", but just can't remember the specific model #, etc. Any help would be appreciated!

Use the wizard on the crutchfield site, I'm pretty sure I have bigger than OEM speakers in there, I bought 4 pioneers, 2 for the front that needed adapters and two for the sound bar but I can't find the receipt for the model numbers. Hmm, I just looked and crutchfield tells me the 6 1/2 don't fit. However the sound bar is pretty empty, you could probably make the hole bigger. Yes, I just went out and looked, should be no problem except maybe for depth and that could be handled with a spacer ring adapter, in fact a spacer ring adapter would set it out far enough that you might not even have to open the hole up anymore based on the taper of the speaker itself.
