Max size for 8" door speakers

Has anyone tried the Pioneer TS-MR2040 Marine 8-Inch in the doors for a non-bose system using the bose mounting bracket KD45-66-A61? With the high efficiency it should run fine with stock amp and the 50% more cone area produce better and lower frequency bass without the need of a subwoofer. Just not sure it will clear. Needs 3 inches in back plus 1-5/8 inch in front. Probably less with the grill off.

The Bose speakers are 6". There's no way you're getting an 8 in a door without massive surgery.

The Bose system uses 8" in the door in Gen 3 (years 14-18). Not sure about other years though. The brackets are readily available for about $15 each. My concerns has to do with available depth since the Bose 8" (called 9") is very thin.
