    Default installing ceiling speaker

    I'm replacing new ceiling speakers on a covered porch. The old speakers cutout size is 10.5" x 7". I was looking at Polk Audio RC55i and their cutout size is 9.63" x 6.25". Obviously those would fit in the already cut out hold, but will the difference in space cause a problem with the new installation?

    Other option is bumping up to the RC65i which has a cutout size of 10.88" x 7.38". That would require additional cutting on a finished wood ceiling and it would get quite messy. Any help? Thanks!

    Good question and in my mind I would go to the larger RC65i since I don't feel the bezel of the RC55i would cover hole of older opening.
