Door speaker adapters?

I'm going to replace the front speakers but I am not paying $30 plus shipping from ******** for 2 wooden rings. Is there an alternative out there?

They are a little more involved than just two wooden rings.

I have the ******** front speaker mounts and they are well built and I figure it would take the average person three to four hours if not more (travel, equipment costs, planning, creating) to reproduce them. Do the math; I bet your time is worth more per hour then the cost of those mounts. I am sure you'll need that extra time when you begin installing those speakers.

Agreed. If someone wants to waste their entire install day making rings, that is perfectly fine. You will find out they aren't as simple as you think they are. Keep in mind that anyone who purchases their speaker kits thru us actually get all the door adapters and door harness for free. We have some really nice speaker options available http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=206422

The below image is a photo of our mount. It is actually 3 layers of mdf (two different thicknesses used) all done on a router (not a skillsaw) and hardware is included.




We actually offer 5 different cutout sizes on our adapters. Not one 'hope it fits' universal size in plastic. This lets our users get the best fit for their particular speaker. Our customers simply want a quick and easy method to install their new speakers, not spending all day cutting mdf and reinventing the wheel or cutting up the stock mounts. All these are options but don't knock the service we provide.

Yeah you all arr a good company definatly not knocking you at all. Comments were strictly based on individual wanting to see what is out there.reguardless of that all boxes , adapters and wiring can be done with some know how. For convience and for those who don't have tools products pre built like ********s are what they need. For someone who has done this many times can make the same quality sometimes better than a cookie cutter. Just saying.

Steve,

I wasn't slamming your product by any means. Hell, I'd prefer to run your stuff but money is tight so I am looking for something on a budget.
