I used the synthetic fiber to stuff up behind the speakers and it worked well for the past 4 years. You can buy this at any crafts store for a few bucks a bag.

A dremel would be nice to have. Loaned mine out about 8 years ago, still waiting for it to come home.
I was under the impression that the company who made them (adapters) were no longer in business. I also figured it'd be pretty fun (and cheaper) to make my own. I didn't take (couldn't) any measurements for the spacers. I need to get the speaker holes drilled, and then a mock-up with speakers and side covers to check for clearance...and then play around with different size spacers.

Also, I had noticed that while I had the speakers out, a great deal of sound was lost to the way they had the speakers angled.
I was thinking of fabbing up some 1/4"-1/2" spacers for the bottom part of the bracket to re-angle the speakers from my shins, to at least be aiming at my knees...lol.
Sounds corny, but even that little bit helps (or at least should).

Speaker adapter plate...advise needed
The other day I went to my local hardware store and purchased a small sheet of 22 guage steel (12"x18"...$4).
With this, I made my own adapter plates for the front dash, took about an hour and a half total time. Everything mounts up just fine....except, I don't have a 4 1/2" hole saw, and don't plan on buying one ($30+).
So my dilema is, now I have perfect adapter blanks and no way to cut the hole for the actual speakers. I was thinking about tracing out the circle, drilling holes on the trace line, then following through with a hack saw blade.
Any ideas to make this any easier?
