I am in serious need of some spacers/brackets for my 1995 Geo Prizm.

The front speakers are 5.25, but they will NOT fit comfortably. I believe the magnet in the back hits the window when it is rolled down.

I saw someone selling spacers and such, but I want to know if this will actually work first.

If not, what is the best bet for me to effectively install these speakers??

Just get a small piece of 1/2" mdf from depot and cut some rings.

That could work good idea.

MDF rings are pretty ideal when it comes to mounting speakers to a door; it provides a good seal against the door and a wood baffle won't resonate like a metal one will.

However, your inner door panel might get in the way if you use baffles. Be sure to check that first.

I've used 1/2" and 3/4" MDF.

See what I did in my truck before I got my doors built was I used little metal tubes about 1/2 long and mouted one on each of the speaker holes and then screwed them in and they worked great but then I got my doors done so I didnt need them lol

Hmm... no there will be no covering over them. They will just be bare.

I don't even care how they look, because I can work on the look AFTER! I just want/need some rings so that they can actually mount in my doors AND be SEALED... :/
