    Speaker Adapter Rings?

    I've been looking around for some speaker adapter rings for 6.5" CDT components for the front doors. The stock original size is 6", and Im not sure if I can find something that will fit the new CDT's. These will be going into my '98 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T.

    Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    prefabs may flex if they are made out of thin material, 1/2" MDF works great with no flexing

    And there's alot of things I don't agree with on either side, thats why I just decide to stand where my morals are.

    Klassic, thanks for posting that picture. Gives me a better ideal of what I need to do in my VW to get the speakers to mount nicely.

    Thanks.
