    Speaker won't fit!

    So I bought some Boston Acoustics SC65's. They were advertised as 6.5", able to fit in 6.75" holes.

    I measured, and the hole is 6.5" in my car, but I think it's a 6.75", nevertheless, it should have been able to get in, but it is way too small.

    Does anybody know of anything that would make it fit?

    I ordered this bracket from Crutchfield, but I just want to know if there are any alternatives if this fails. Thanks!

    The speaker is too small or the hole is too small?

    Speaker is too small. Not even close to getting any mounting points.

    Re: Speaker won't fit!

    The adapter brackets should work. The cheaper way is to trace the original speaker on wood for an adapter and cut out a hole for the speaker. Plus it gives you a more solid mount than a thin piece of plastic.

    Cut with a saw LOL.. A jig will wrk and a pack of sand paper. Depot or Lowes would be where to go and you need to buy mdf what thickness depends on you and your install.

    Re: Speaker won't fit!

    Yea, you need a jig saw, a drill, and a place to do the work.



















    I use hurricane nuts or t-nuts for speaker mounting. I use bolts to hold the baffle in place.

    Then I wrap the MDF in deadener or coat in resin to waterproof. You cannot use raw MDF. If it gets wet it is ruined.















    The foam on front is for a seal against the door panel.

    Sure, but would 3/4 be too thick? What measurements would you need? Thanks!
