    Replacing Door Speakers

    After fitting my new Kenwood stereo (W7751U), I am think of replacing my front door speakers with Pioneer TS-E1702is.
    Can anyone advise whether this would be a good choice? Do they fit directly into door without adaptor plate?
    They are going into a Vauxhall Astra Convertible 2004.
    Thanks

    im finding it hard fitting a set of kenwood due to the fact that vauxhall oe speakers seam to be connected by three screws but the kenwoods are connected by four so the adaptore plates are needed and some new holes as well even though the speakers are 17cm/16.5inches lol

    Adaptor plates are needed as not only is there less screw holes on the standard speaker (not a big issue) the adaptors also push the speaker a extra inch out the door giving better clearence
