Yes, but the genious is that I am top mounting them without drilling holes in the door panel. yes I will have to make a custom grill.
The OEM speakers use the depth of the panel because their brackets are recessed back from the front of the speaker. So if you don't top mount, you are losing like a half an inch in depth which the OEM speakers are designed to take advantage of.
