Speaker mounting options

Post by diplomaticm3 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 8:30 pm

Has anyone had any luck with finding any options for mounts for aftermarket speakers?

I’d rather not mutilate the stock speakers. Car is 2000 V70r.

Thanks I’m advance

Not sure what you are asking? Are you adding additional speakers to the car or fitting replacements in the original spots in place of the originals?

Fitting aftermarket speakers in the original spots...it seems the mount is completely attached to the original speakers.

Fabricate new mounts, or cut the old mounts off. Those are your options. Given you dont want to mutilate the current speakers, you will need to make some new ones up. MDF works fine for this, just make sure you isolate it from the metal of the door skin to reduce vibration and resonances.
