Yes, the Bullet HollowPoint 770s will drop right in with the same six hole pattern. It's an excellent HLCD.
However, many (not all) of the factory MC pods containing front lamps are not sealed airtight. You must resolve this or you'll be back in the same boat with a failed replacement speaker.
First, pull the drivers and investigate your pods.
Get with Odin at Earmark Marine. He offers the HollowPoint HLCDs or the direct JL Audio replacement, and makes kits from aluminum to seal the pods yet still allow for service access to the lights from the interior.
