Cutout size for 265-RTs

I want to replace some existing in wall speakers with 265-RTs, but the existing cutout size is 7.5" wide. Would the 265-RTs work with the cutout being .25" too wide? Trying to avoid patching existing hole and cutting a new one.

    Is the dimension total or per side? Either case I believe so. The speakers have a flange all around that should allow for minor differences.

    The best bet for a good mount is to track down the construction bracket... Cut two small slits in the cut out, push it up into the ceiling then glue it down to the back side of the drywall... Let cure for a hour or so (power grab) then you will have a reinforced drywall cut out to securely clamp the speaker to.
