some speakers come with a plate, but those dont, great sounding speaker for a coax for sure, Personally get a piece of 1/4 or 1/2" mdf, take that factory spacer ring on the 6x9 off, trace the outside, pre drill the holes for the screw mounts, then cut out the 6.5 hole with the template they supply with the speaker, you can adust some to make it line up with the door opening, if your realllllly good you can space the speaker out even more and get it closer to the grill and help on some minor image issues. Wish I had pics of my install, OHHHH and i quick tip, when you put the adapter on the door, screw it on, dynamat around that about 5" gives some stiffer midbass from my experience! Hope this helps Bro!

MDF is multi density fiberboard, better than plywood and all that particle board stuff, very compressed and alot more substance to it, holds up for years upon years! its what they make speaker boxes out of alot of the time! Give it a try bro, I got some faith in ya!

I'm currently searching for some mdf. Lowes around here doesn't carry it. But I'll keep looking.
Also, the speakers are from my other truck which now gets alot of dirty driving. The speakers are coating in fine dust. What is the best/safest way to clean them?
Maybe just crank them up???
