I went with the cheapest sound bar I could get at Best Buy, optical cable. All the volume I need and decent sound. To each his own.

I also use the adapter rings shown in Post 9.
I bought 2 sets and double stacked them to provide 2 inch

That's a great idea if I can't fit it depth wise in the ceiling, so it just sticks down a bit from the ceiling? Just not flush?

Exactly. I did how to post with pictures about a year ago if I can find it. Actually from my phone now I know I can't find it but could from my laptop. You may find it before I do.

There are many more excellent 6.5" speakers available and I'd go with a name HOME speaker brand for the best sound...Infinity, BostonAccoustics, JBL etc.

2. Depth can be handled with spacers like these:
Metra 82-4300 Speaker Adaptors for Universal 1" Plastic Spacer Rings

3. The first thing to do is remove the existing ones and probe around to see how deep you can go and if there is any obstruction to installing larger speakers. 6.5" is ideal...but the other sizes...5.25" and 4" can also give major improvements with quality brands over the crap that comes pre-installed.

You can re-use the existing wiring easily...so it is simply a matter of figuring out what will fit and the mounting process. Good luck!

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thank you!

Just wanted to update anyone who was curious...I took the speakers down from the ceiling and found that both INSIDE speakers were FILLED with crappy foam and rubber insulation. Don't get me wrong, the speakers still SUCK, but at leas they're not blown.

There's a big differense between BAD sounds quality and Broken sound quality lol.
