I can't speak for the fit of the Infinity. I went with a pair of Massive Audio comps in the front but I used a set of scosche universal speaker baffles/adapters. It definitely took a bit of messing around before I got it it positioned properly. I also see quite a few folks here have used the Crutchfield adapters. But those say they fit speakers with a mounting diameter of 5 1/8 or smaller i think? and mine were a bit bigger.

I don't think you should bother putting the fronts in the rears. Just keep the rears the way they are and use the setup with fade forward. If you need more bass get a sub. Are you amping the speakers?
