That's exactly my problem, but my shelf was already cut, so I just have the grills.

Got a pair of nice 6x9 if you want them to fill the holes ? Free , took them out of an Activa a few years ago

Having a mk 1 there is actually no provision for front speakers except the dash tweeters and under dash "boom" speaker.. So as I too dont want to start cutting holes in the rear deck (which also gives big issues when you need to flatten the rear seat) I have opted for a suitably retro pair of Realistic (Radio Shack) minimus 7 bookshelf speakers that can either sit on the rear deck, on the rear seat floor space or even tucked up under the front seats depending on what you have aboard. I decided that the acoustic space in the C-pillars just would not be up to delivering any decent sound quality...

Not very elegant, but this is what I had in my GT, which was also my first car.

I also had 3way 6x9's in the parcel shelf.. I was 18 8)

Well if you need anything the car is a parts car now :cry: so keep me in mind. Postage from Brisbane shouldn't be too bad
