Could this be the perfect BOSE 6x9 replacement. - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Bill the spacers are fine....the opening for them a little too small for alot of the aftermarket replacements...it takes a little dremling to get the opening a little bigger and the aftermarkets fit fine

I had to do that with my Boston'*. I just measured the long and short diameters of the speaker frame, and used the Ellipse tool in Adobe Illustrator to print out a template onto cardstock (select tool, click on page, enter long and short diameters, press enter), which I cut out and traced with a Sharpie on the top of the stock speaker brackets, then used a Dremel to trim away the excess plastic until the speaker fit properly. It took like ten minutes.

pretty good idea right there. I normally just go with the cut test cut test method.
