Not really no... especially if you want actual high fidelity sound from them... you may as well leave them connected in the box if planning to fit them like that...

8L front speakers use 3 screws and are a smaller size to the typical 13cm replacements people buy... bodging them in won't sound any better than playing tunes from your phone..

Andymac has some nice MDF ones, would work fine. Also you have a max mounting depth of 54mm or so...
