Your best bet is skipping the 3-way setup, and going to a traditional two way setup.

Take a look here:


I have a few photos of what's involved in swapping it out. You can easily get a 6.5" midbass in a coupe..it takes some mild fabbriaction, but nothing too hard.

The same is true for the rear deck, but a 6 or 5.25" is far more comfortable.

I would block off the factory tweeter, and put the aftermarket setup where the factory midrange was.

You could pop the old Boston setup in kickpanels, then throw dedicated midbasses in the doors....that would be a nice threeway setup....or, create some tweeter bridges for the bostons, and mount them co-ax style in the rear deck for rear-fill if you enjoy it that way.
