I have seen people remove the air vents on the dashboard, if you have them, and fit the speakers neatly in the holes.

You might have to accept that you have to compromise somewhere, anywhere the speakers are hidden will distort the sound from them.

 

You say you have a parcel shelf fitted, check out Optimise automotive. They sell parcel shelves that are just a frame with material over so you could have speakers beneath is and still maintain the stealth look.
