2000 X-Star - Can I upgrade the cockpits to 7.7" Coaxials?

My 2000 X-Star cockpit speakers are finally getting tossed.

I need a new amp as well, so I wondered if, since I'm replacing the entire setup, that I can fit 7.7" cockpit speakers instead of the OEM 6.5" ones? Im curious if theres enough space to fit them in the rear without touching the floor/seat and in the bow space between the cushions.

If so, is there an easy way to enlarge the existing hole (I believe 5") to fit them (to 6.5")?

I searched around here for some advice but didn't see any so I thought Id post.

The later 205V hulls came with the JL 7.7s. as long as the current hole isnt already too low, I dont think it would be an issue.

Depth may be an issue.

I need to change out my speakers but don't know what to do about the tweeter hole.
Being on the water is best, but when I'm not on the water I'm on TT.

I did the Clarion 6.5 to JL 7.7 on my 2004 X30. I went through several routing bits on my Dremel to get all 4 done. The fiberglass trashes the bits and you have to go slow so it doesn't get too hot. I'm sure there are better methods but it does work.
