What do you mean "hit the door"?

they are too deep for the door he's trying to put them in most probably. Your solution is most likely going to be building a outrigger-type box off the door to give the additional depth required or to just not put the speaker in that door, or of course finding a shallower speaker.

yeah you may have to build it out a little get some mdf and make a ring to give you the space you need or get a shallow mount speaker like he said. if you get a piece of wood for it then you can paint or cover with fabric so it mounts and looks good.
