Don't have a mechanic work on your stereo system. Take it to a place that specializes in car audio! They shouldn't have any problems fitting aftermarket speakers in there.

I would recommend replacing the whole system though (radio, amplifier, speakers). Upgrading just a piece of the system will give you some improvements, but the biggest improvement would be to replace the whole thing.

JL XR525csi components, no cutting, but you will need to make a custom ring to mount the mid range.

I had Focal 5.25" components fitted in my doors - no problems at all. Excellent speakers.

Focals also fit the rear shelf locations without any modification too.

Get it done by a car audio professional though!
