Cool 6.5 speaker install issue need help ASAP

hello guys

I bought a 2007 gmc canyon 4 door. I put new 6.5 inch speaker in and my door panel some how smashed them. I not a newbie on car stereo installions but im pissed off because i spend all that money for nothing. how did you guys install your speakers in your trucks? when u changed you speakers out did you have to put some kind of special mount so they didn't get ruined please help me out if you have any advice. Also i used to won a 2005 Chevy canyon extended cab and didn't have any issues with installing the speaker on this truck. so now i get to throw away 500$ worth of speaker in the trash can!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Moved thread to the 1st gen audio section.

Might help if you mentioned what brand speakers you were trying to install.

I am in the process of posting the "how to" on all the speakers I just installed in all 4 doors, will be done tonight. I don't expect it to be different, but I have a 2012 and didn't notice the tabs supermodulation mentioned. (maybe i should have another look?) Do you know WHAT crushed your speakers? One of my door panels was tough to get back on and I found myself almost damaging some speaker rubber trying to get the top part of the panel hooked on between the door frame and the glass (it was 16 degrees and that window was frozen shut; couldn't roll it down).
