5x7 vs 6.5" speakers

Hey guys I have a 13 cvo rg I ordered bike tronics 6.5" adapters not realizing the cvo has 5x7 speakers in it so the adapters don't fit. So now I'm wondering if it's really worth it to go buy new speaker grills for 5.25" so the 6.5" adapters fit and I can use them. Or should I just put 5x7 in and say good enough? Is there that much of a difference?

Apples to apples the 5x7 will beat out the 6.5 every time. The problem lays in finding 5x7. Everyone makes 6.5 , but not 5x7.

The RG speaker grill is the same regardless of what speaker you use. If you do go back to 6,5 your going to need the stock 5.25 speaker mounts. Thats what the 6.5 adapters will bolt up to. I don't think they will bolt up to the 5x7 mounts which replaced the 5.25 speaker mounts.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.
