Those are fastory covers, so they DO match everything.
The factory puts 3" speakers back there, I put 3.5" speakers in. Some have put 4" speakers in, but I can't see 6.5's going behind those without a LOT of metat cutting!

I'll be in San Diego the 2nd weekend in June. If you're willing to wait, I'd consider trading you my covers for your blanks. PM me if interested. An aside, though, the imaging (if you end up amplifying) won't be that great. It's a weird spot for such small speakers, especially if you add a sub and some speakers by the rear doors (where they should have gone anyway)

Supposedly the wiring is already there. I agree it is a really weird spot for speakers. I couldnt see adding speakers back there unless they ampified. I just dont want my rear passengers to only hear bass when I crank it thats the only reason Im adding them.

I own an '07 that did not come with factory speakers.

The wiring for the speakers IS there! If you pop off the plastic cover, just look in and down about 1 1/2" and you will see the factory plugs. The speakers just plug into those.

But........
I just spent a whole bunch of money to install the OEM speakers, (speakers, speaker covers, brackets and bolts) and to be honest, it was a waste! Not worth the money, IMO. They don't put out any volume and the sound quality is horrible.

I would definitely upgrade to a better quality speaker.

Just my opinion..........

the speaker wiring IS there as it was mentioned before. you would just have to get the wiring harness that attaches to the existing harness from cruthchfield. it's only around $10. i didn't have the the factory speakers in the rear also ad installed 4'' Infinity's. some people say that once you install subs, you won't be able to hear them. i can hear them clearly with the bass pumping at loud volumes.
