whats wrong with what i bought? Am i missing something here?

I have some second skin left over which i was going to use on the ring, both sides, i also have foam thats used for speaker mounting that creates a seal that i can be used in lieu or in conjunction. I just dont want everything to be so thick that the woofer hits the grill on the door.

this is where i purchased from http://www.car-speaker-adapters.com/

Nothing wrong, just a traditional baffle would be a better solution and not give you any complications. I'm not big on plastic baffles.

remember what my mdf ring looked like in the rear deck? I am getting the dremel hopefully mid-week i could attempt an mdf baffle with that, the circle attachment comes with it. None the less, i got a few things that i can try. I want to see how rigid the ring is once mounted to the driver

Its weird, the mounting hardware that came witht he drives have these little V clips..not sure how they are supposed to be used.

I have a PC router with the perfect circle jig which does 2" diameter cut out to 30" cuts. i bought this 10 years ago when I built a lot of fiberglass subwoofer enclosuers were I routed many different size rings. also I have metal rings ranging in 8" to 15" which cover 85% of subwoofers on the market.


here are the rings i use for test fit for subs and making circles

so that bench is made up of a 4x8 sheet zipped down the middle to give you a 2 2x8 sheets of 3/4 ply made with 2x4 studs.....i had 2 of those in my basement, i did doubleupped 2x4's was built like tank! I put beaverboard on top, did for a great smoothe surface.

I got my dremel today and i botched my first ring....go figure Not bad but i just carved away a lot more material then i really had to, i thought it needed it so it wasn't my skill of the tool, just retarded gauging. Ugg. The mounts are pretty flimsy, i am kind of disappointed. I think i might just use the rings as a guide to produce new rings. I dont think a perfect circle would cover the hole in the door right?
