    The rear speakers are 16cmx16cm but you have to pay attention to the depth of the speakers if they are to deep you have to buy adaptors.

    But the stock speakers only have 3 screw holes tho? After markets have 4 so how will i mount them in the back?

    The after market speakers have 4 holes but you use only 3 it´s enough.

    You can buy adapters on ebay for the Honda Accord 6th Generation, Click here
    The speakers as already said are 16.5cm or 5 1/2 inches

    Depending on your preference you could locate a set of used Bose speakers that where fitted to Executive models as standard equipment and I will certainly say they are very good (I've got some fitted to my car all around) they are the same size front and back and will be the same 3 screw pattern.

    Also I believe JBL and Infinity sell speakers with an adapter ring in which the speakers can be made to fit the 3 screw pattern of the Accord without the need for adapter rings.

    How is it going? I was under the impression that our doors could only take 5 1/4 inch speakers but hopefully the 6 do work.

    Also feel free to take a look at this guide, Upgrading door speakers (Non-Bose systems) (Guides - )

    @Chunkylover53 16cm is the stock speaker size for our doors. You can get speaker adapters on ebay that will replace the stock baffle so that ordinary 4 screw hole speakers will fit. However jbl and infinity speakers at least used to come with a metal adapter ring.

    Mine are definitely 5 1/4, I remember buying 6 inch ones in error and finding out that they would not fit after which I checked lings which made it clear.

    I'm guessing that 6 inch speakers are another little improvement for Accords from 00 onwards :Smile:

    Ivw only got 4 speakers, 2 in the front door and 2 in parcel shelf, so are they definitely 6" or 6.5" cos i really need know before i order them, think ill order the adapters then nip halfords and see which ones fit haha, want some sony ones and found some just need know what size i need because i dno how deep they need be for parcel shelf either

    I don't think it matters for the parcel shelf how deep they are, but it does for the doors, as they cannot be deeper than the baffles as it might hit the window regulator on the way down. Like I said JBL and Infinity, both owned I think by Harmon Karddon used to include adapter rings for their speakers and to be honest will more than likely sound better than the Sony units your looking at.

    Had a quick look and the infinity speakers still come with speaker rings, so you can use the oe honda baffles and an adapter ring. Hopefully it won't push the speaker into the door card too much.
