Default in-wall speakers on an outside wall with insulation

Hi all, I'm thinking of buying in-wall speakers for my family room. I will be putting them on an outside with insulation inside the wall. the speakers are around 3 inches thick. that means the back of the speaker will be pressed up against the insulation and the insulation will be compressed in that area. I'm not sure how thick the wall is. Is it a problem if the insulation is compressed like this? also, between the speaker and the insulation is the vapor barrier. Is that ok or should I cut out the vapor barrier so the speaker is pressed up against the insulation directly?
