Voyager rear speaker adapters

I've searched and don't see anything related, so...

Doing stereo, amp and speaker upgrade on 2011 Voyager with 4 speaker set-up.

I've ordered the adapters for the front speakers to accommodate 6.5".

For the rear pods, no one seems to make an adapter to go up to 6.5". Has anyone tried this, and what did you use? I did find some adapters from JL Audio that MIGHT work, but won't be here til next week.

I don’t own a voyager but if I were a betting man I would say there is no way a 6.5” speaker will fit in those little rear pods.

Engineered Adapters makes adapters for the front but not the rear pods.

You're right, Alwhite00 they won't. At least not all the way flush. I tried it yesterday just to see how far they'd go in. Maybe different speakers designs will fit further in. I got Rockford Fosgate RM0652B and they go most of the way in. I got the front ones mounted today with the Engineered Adapters, and they sound great. Found some HD adapters that allow a 6.5" speaker to fit a hole for a 5.25". They look to be 1/2 to 1" wide. We will see and report in with results.

Nobody makes any. If you have a passenger, I would watch trying to even do this. The stock speakers are already close to their hips.

I've be decided to go with the Kicker 6.5" (43csc654) for all 4 speakers. Measurements say they'll drop into the rear pods without an adapter. Should get them on the 18th so I'll get to it and report back. My guitar amp and hotrod building buddy had an idea of using the HD (JL Audio) adapters and getting a new piece of leather to cover it up, but that didn't solve the leg room issue for passenger.

I like the grills in the Rockfords better, but the overall goal is better and more sound.
