Soundbar speaker replacement question

Hey folks.
I am replacing the rear speakers in a 2013 JKU.

I bought some infinities that I really like. They are a fit.

Now, the screw pattern is all wrong, since the speaker design for the soundbar is three tabs, and that is a really odd setting. There are adapters for that, but I am thinking that I can just screw the speakers into the plastic trim. But I am wondering if I should use some sheet metal u-clips to hold the speakers in place?

Or, should I suck up the $12 and get the speaker adapter from amazon?

What do you say?

I'd buy a speaker adapter or make something.. you want a good seal. Screwing into the plastic is never a good idea IMO. I'd make it so you can mount the adapter/spacer to the factory mounts and then mount the infinity speakers to the spacer.

Agreed, I wouldn't go into the plastic but a speed clip on the backside and a pilot hole through the plastic maybe
