There is around 3-4mm from the grille mounting tab top to the edge of the door panel surface. If you press the speaker frame against the grill tabs hard enough you could gain another 1-2 mm... that's at the most 6mm extra in usable space between these 42mm Esotars from the 50mm deep Morels. Add the 8mm difference and there you go, no need to cut the tabs.
