Jason, I have had very good results installing 6 1/2 round speakers in
the kick panels of both my MGBs.

I bought a Black & Decker VersaPak reciprocating saw (like $50) to cut
the holes (and use for lots of other stuff). I bought good quality 6 1/2

layer of plastic sheet behind the speaker (to seal any water etc. from
the fender well) and trimmed it inside the car, around the grill ring.

Inside, the sound sounds like it is comming from the middle of the dash,
and outside, other drivers can enjoy my "golden oldies" tunes coming
from my front fenders. The 6 1/2 three-ways seem "bassy" enough, and
still do nice highs from the built-in tweeters.
