What speakers are they? If they have 4 mounting holes you may have to drill a couple of holes to get them to fit. Or did you mean they don't go far enough back into the speaker hole?

So the problem is that there are only 3 holes on the door and 4 holes on the speaker? If thats the case, then you just need to make more holes so that it fits.

I have some mounting brackets for my JBL GTO's that I dont need, they convert 3 hole to 4 hole...

i thought what he meant is the diameter of the speaker and ring is 0.5cm too small...

So the holes in the door are 1/2 a cm wider than the holes in the speaker? What kind of screws are in them :eek: Got any pics to help me see exactly what is up? :)

Wouldn't suggest using velcro dude lol. The plastic is pretty soft so you could just make a hole (using the speaker itself as a template, screw one screw in and push it back while you do it) with a bradawl and you're sorted. Thats what I did, just be careful not to slip, and I would suggest getting someone else to hold the speaker in place so you can use one hand to push and the other to hold the bradawl steady (y)
