    6x8 to 6.5 speaker adapters

    does anyone make them in MDF and sell them. i would make them my self but I dont have the tools and id spend too much buying the tools just for that. i see these plastic ones, but i hear they ****.

    http://www.autotoys.com/x/catalog/6_...Y__p_1772.html

    if no companies make them, would someone make a pair and sell them to me?

    Thanks

    edit: yes, i searched.

    Moe Lester or someone else that builds boxes would be good to talk with.

    I built my own out of acrylic, but I had major clearance issues to deal with...

    Re: 6x8 to 6.5 speaker adapters

    i used adapters to mount xxx mids in the factory locations, no rattling at all.


    i recommended a 6x8 to 6.5 adapter for my brother's 240sx and he hasn't complained yet

    Re: 6x8 to 6.5 speaker adapters

    i think you can get em from www.crutchfield.com but i don't know what they are made of. and i am pretty sure they include them for free if you order speakers from them.
