Why did you have to use the new grills. Did the existing ones glued to the carpet not fit?

Be sure to remove the factory ones if you are replacing the grill. Mount the new grill on the outside of the cloth, not the bottom.

Sincerely,

George

I had the same problem when I replaced my rear speakers with 6.5" Infinity;'s. I've yet to decide what to do about it. I'll probably just re-carpet the rear deck with a matchign black or gray and then cut out the size holes I need.

TTOversteer and I just had the same problem in the rear deck. The Sony Mobil ES 3 ways he bought are too tall for the stock grill.

Unfortunately it is not possible to mount the grill using the factory mounting plate, and the mouting plate that came with the speakers doesn't line up withe the existing holes in the rear deck.

First we are going to drill new holes into the factory mounting plate so that we can use the grills that came with the speakers, then we might recover the rear deck with some new fabric to hide the holes from the old grills.

Question Ring around the 6.5"

I replaced my rear 6.5" speakers and had to use the new grills. I don't mind this, because they will be very easy to replace in the future, but have a ring in the carpet around from the factory grills and the screws are visible.

Any suggestions how to "hide" this?

My new speakers came with new grills and they are too "tall" to fit unde the stock grills. The stock grill is not "glued" to the carpet, only held into the piece of "wood(I'm using this term loosly)" which bridges the rear deck, by a bunch of washers that must be removed from the underside.

Can anyone recommend decent looking 8" grills that will fix this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Question

Is it possible to buy or fabricate a spacer ring to place under the factory grill in order to increase the speaker clearance?

I plan to buy a pair of Infinity 652I speakers for my rear deck. Will I encounter the same clearance problem?

Silversuby,

Why not use the grills that came with your new speakers?

Silver2000RS,
It is possible to fabricate anything.

TToversteer and I are goign to drill the necessary holes in the factory mouting plate so that the Sony grills can be used.

I am using the grills that came with the new speakers. They aren't as big around as the stock one's, so you can see where the carpet is cut up. The old grills were much larger and covered this up, but since the new ones' aren't as large it's not covered up.

The reason why my new speakers are too tall for the old grills is because I have coaxials. That tweeter tends to make the speaker a bit taller.
