Default Speaker spacers for 2004 Forester XT front and rear speakers?

I searched for this, but all I found were references to MDF spacer rings for aftermarket speakers.

Can anyone tell me about any pre-made spacers for my front and rear speakers?


or, can someone make me some?



I am setting up a front sound stage primarily, but I am still going to install rear door speakers for the rear passengers....

I have already started with the sound deadening process with RAAMmat and Ensolite.... It makes a big difference!!!!

I have not yet installed any new speakers or equipment.


Thanks all
RYNO

Forget the IAP spacers, it's very flimsy. Also, take a look at the shipping costs!.

If you want very good spacers, that are reasonable in price, and very rigid. Go to www.kartboy.com NASIOC had a great thread on the need, and Tom@kartboy delivered for us.

How much depth do you need? I could probably cut you out some 1/2" or 3/4" MDF spacers. I got a new fancy circle cutting for my router.

That's what I did for my rear speakers! I even kept the voice coil leads and soldered them to the aftermarket terminals. That way the "new" setup plugged right into the stock harness.
