As mentioned, there's a metal bracket to cut, but it's not that bad, then put in the adapter plate and hook up the speakers... Afaik, the depth on them is pretty much the same.. But, Idk. Mine fit fine. You can get some very nice metal adapter plates here...Nalin Manufacturing and support a great Jeeper
Not a problem. I'm not sure what your planning on using to cut the metal bar out, but i used a dremel and went through 4 blades, wore them down to nothing so keep that in mind. and the metal got super hot after it was cut.
I bought the 33 Engineering ones and they worked great. Yep, there is not much to them and can be fabricated relatively easy if you have the means. I just have more money than I have time. Most of the time anyway.

my sport doesn't have the stock 4x6... its got a round 4" + tweeter on a mounting fixture
makes more sense now :P
So what did you end up doing? I've ordered some 4" alpines for the dash, not realizing that I had component speakers in there until tonight. Did you keep the tweeters in there and just get some 2-ways?
The 4" speakers came in. I ended up pulling the stock component set off of the plastic box, filled it with polyfill, and put the new speaker on. It fit exactly like the stock 4" did. The stereo comes in on Thursday so I can't test it yet. Hopefully it will sound ok, otherwise I'll end up mounting it open air like you and most others.
