Advice pls..Will these speakers fit in my doors?

Alright, I've read lots of threads on this issue, but I just need to know if Boston Pro 60's will fit in a sedan without cutting the doors. I believe they are 2 3/8" deep. From what I've read anything less than 2 1/2" should be okay, but can anyone confirm this?

I've seen the DIY on these exact speakers so obviously I know it can be done, but is it absolutely necessary to cut the doors or will they fit in the stock location with adapter rings? I know cutting the doors will improve SQ a lot, but I don't want to spend the extra money to pay an installer and I'm not willing to cut the doors myself.

I'd rather get the PRO60's in case I move on to another car in the future since they are more of a standard size and I'm sure they'll sound better than the 5 1/4's. What do you guys think?

They should fit no problem, you actually have a bit over 2.5" to play with.

Now if you are not going to cut your door I do highly recommend you dampen the crap out of it still, give it some mass so you can feel those drivers kick in your leg.
No sense spending the money and doing the work to not get the sound
