Speakers stick out too far.

Hi guys, I just did a stupid thing, bought a pair of 6x9's to replace my broken ones which were CV's they protuded about half inch from the trim, my new ones stick almost an inch, I was so concerned about getting a pair that would fill the hole did not even think about the thickness, anyway problem is now I cannot lift back of the seat to access storage or fuel tanks, so have to get another pair. Does anyone know where I can get pair that would work. Pleeeeeeeeeeeease.

Most speaker specs can be found in the manufacturers literature. Its probably gonna take some tine to find a pair that closely match the old pair. Can you post a pic of your dilemma?

Why are they not fitting? Is it that there isn't adequate depth for magnet clearance? Or, is it that the shape of the baskets are different so that one doesn't completely fit through the outer coaming panel opening?

No David, its the grill part that sticks out into rear sitting area, the back of the seat lifts up from the bottom, but now fouls on the speaker grills.

Perhaps a different, nearly flush grill and rear-load the speaker if you have the access?

Thats what I am looking for a nearly flush grill just like the old ones were David. Not sure what you mean rear load, I have to use same cutouts.

Any way of making your old grills work with the new speakers? Just a thought.

How about something like this, could you make these work? They look pretty flat and aren't too expensive.

When you reply open the "More Reply Options" on the bottom right. You'll then see a button "Choose Files..." near the bottom left for you to attach the pic.

Stu - what is the current brand you have installed on the ol Setter? Take you speaker out and go see Dwayne or Dayton at Mobile Sounds, they will help you out.
