View Full Version : F-ing pissed... Tang Band 6x9s don't fit stock pods.

Just a warning...

I have an Accord w/standard 6x9 openings. I bought the Tang Band subs, went to put them in my car...

The **** things didn't fit!!!! They were too big. They sat about 1/2 inch out of the opening from what I remember.

I'm trying to figure out how to proceed for the least amount of $$$. There are 6x9 MDF rings for sale on Ebay, but I'm scared that I'll buy them and have the same problem as before. I do have a dremel so maybe I will just hack away at the stock openings.

Any suggestions???

Any suggestions???Just make your own MDF ring.

I would have to buy a saw... which would cost more than buying rings off Ebay and dremeling out what I need with the Dremel I already have...

And I would only use the saw for this. Plus I live in an apt... the router deal makes no sense

or a jigsaw....did tang band send you a cutout template with the speakers? if they did use that to trace the ring out onto the mdf and cut out your rings. if not, you will have to work a little more, but making your own rings is easy

make your own baffles and use some tin snips to cut rear deck. simple

If you had searched you probably would've seen they don't fit without modification. I've seen it mentioned a few times on here.

I'd be even more **** after a dozen of people told me exactly what I needed to do, and I decided to just stay with my Type R's because I have no balls.

X2. Even parts express mentions you will have to do a little fabrication to make them fit.
