I have a 2dr 96 Lx hatch. I the way the stock speakers mount on the front door don’t line up with any speakers iv purchased. And I have bought both 5-1/2 and 6s now. I’m starting to get annoyed and just wanted to see what all your solutions were. Should I just drill through the door?

I reused one hole and carefully drilled two (or was it three?) holes and installed "nutserts", which are a kind of blind rivet that has inside threads. Worked very well.

I have replaced the speakers in the door of two of my escorts. The mountings are the same for all of them, but dont match any speakers I found. And the speaker cant protrude back into the door more than about 2.5", or they interfered with the window glass. At least this true on my 4 door escorts.

I bought Pioneer 6.5" speakers and they fit just fine. They have the three hole mounting configuration just like the escort. They were also shallow enough to clear the door panel and window when it was down.
