Re: Re: Newb question; how to make deeper speakers fit?
yup, spacer rings... Originally posted by Mac11 go to the hardware store and look around to see if they have scrap pieces of MDF-medium density fiberboard- same stuff you use to make sub boxs. they have old scrap pieces for sale at the home depot by my house. just cut a circle the size of the speaker then cut the inside of the circle out so the speaker will fit inside the hole. put your new MDF ring between the speaker and the door. viola! you have now added 3/4 inch of mounting depth. if you need more then 3/4 inch do the same thing with a 2nd piece. hope that helps. let me know if i need to clarify anything.
only problem is that if the spacer is too thick, you're gonna have problems putting back the door panel back on. You might have to do some custom resin/fiberglass job to make it look flush... or you could also go for the flower-pot trick, like what one of the meembrs did here...ultra ghetto.
