Simply open 2 bottles of wine and cut each plug in half and then you can use them as washer between speaker and car door - i did it with speakers of 16.5cm.

Putting a cork in between the door and the speaker means you loose low tones at all due to a phenomenon called feedback.

Once you buy 16,5 cm speakers, the best way is to buy proper wooden spacers or make your own ones. The're made of 18mm wood panel.

Then you'd need to dampen the door. Here's a photostory:

Plastic spacers are OK but not stiff enough if you are aiming at some proper sound.

The OEM speakers are very slim with a puny magnet. You may find that the Kenwood speakers are more substantial and therefore a bit of a tight fit.

I fitted JL Audio 5x7 speakers in the doors of my Marea and, even using a spacer, I had to cut away a fair amount of metal for them to fit.
