A lot of the adapters eliminate the stock speaker box to fit larger speakers like the 5.25". IMO going to a larger speaker, with no box is a big mistake.

Neil F. Just stuff some baffling in the dash behind the speaker. Go to a fabric store and pick up some pillow stuffing material.

Speaker Audio Foam

Hey everyone. First post so just going to say you guys rock as I have followed many of your write ups for various things for my Jeep and have always figured it out thanks to your help. I am going forward with upgrading my two front dash speakers to 5.25 as my left stock speaker has been blown out. I have the adapters and everything I need. The only question I have is: Would you recommend a foam or any other material to put behind the speaker to help shoot the sound forward? If so, where could I find some to get the job done? I don't know if it would help any, but these are the brackets I currently have.

Thanks!
