94 Corolla Front Speakers

I recently added some new stereo equipment to my 94 Corolla.

Infinity Reference 6.5" in the rear deck and an Infinity 7541A Amplifier (111w RMS x 4 @ 4ohm). Have them running off the RCA Sub output of the headunit and they sound incredible...a poor mans sub you could say.

I have some aftermarket speakers in the front, but would like to replace them with better ones. Now, my question is for anyone who has installed speakers larger than 4" in the front.
What exactly is involved, and what exactly can be made to fit? I would like to put some 5.25" speakers in those doors (6.5" would be ideal, but I have a feeling that just aunt gunna happen...a guy can dream tho).

Thanks for any wisdom you guys can impart on me.

PS - I don't have a huge amount of money to spend, but I have no problem dropping cash on brackets, mounts, etc, so long as theyre not hugely expensive.

im not sure on this, but i think ive read somewhere that 6.5" can be done (not fully sure, sorry if its not true), but you'll have to seriously butcher your door. and make a mounting bracket and what not.

Mount depth is only 1.75". Some 4" speakers will not even fit. If you can find a 5.25" speaker with say a 2" depth, go to the junkyard and pull 2 speaker mount brackets from a 93-97 corolla. Experiment with these to see if you can make it work while retaining the stock look. If you can get it to fit, you could even drill out more holes in the factory grill plastic for the sound to come through. On another note, getting good imaging is very difficult with such a narrow width and shallow dash.

I was actually able to get some 5.25" speakers to fit. By removing the factory bracket I was able to use 3 screws to attach them directly to the door frame...believe it or not, but they sound shockingly good mounted like that. The only problem is that they are about .25" too deep, and keep the window from going down the last 3 inches. As soon as I cut a new bracket out of some plywood (or whatever I can get my hands on), that problem will be solved, but it hasnt been enough of an annoyance to bother for some time.
