ok, i've run a search.

the back speakers are 6" x 9" as I suspected.

The front speakers are 5.25" but 6.5" will fit, is that correct?

I'm looking at some Pioneer speakers for the front which come in 6" and 6.5". So I guess that the 6.5" should be ok?

You will need to buy or make spacers to bring the 6.5" out a bit, and the hole pattern is not standard. I came up with this formula: spacer thickness = speaker mounting depth - 1.75".

Here's a picture of one of my spacers. If you're interested in the rest of my audio install, click the link in my sig.
