Another Speaker Thread

OK, I have finally given up on Bavarian Soundwerks ever producing an X3 specific speaker. They've been saying "soon" for the past two years.

I came across the Rockford Fosgate T142 and the mounting holes look like it might actually work with the X3 without any modification or additional bracket being required.

Attached (assuming I did it right) is the cutout for the speaker giving diameter etc. Anybody out there measured their original speaker and can comment on the likelihood of these fitting? The depth is 1.79 inches which looks good but not sure about the sensitivity of 86 dB using the current amps though - I like my music loud. The speakers can be obtained for much less than the $199.99 on the website.

evlengr - just in case you're wondering I don't think your reputation was at all tarnished by that other thread and your opinion here would be very welcome.
