What about the GTO428 or 429? What is your opinion of those?
Even the 3.5 inch speaker that is in there isn't "sealed" - the front of the speaker overhangs an open area. I couldn't lift the P462 speaker any more and still get the vent cover on, so lifting for a baffle is not possible. Even though the OEM isn't sealed, it's still ideal to have the speaker mounted to a surface with something blocking as much as the back wave as possible. Not sure about the mentioned 3.5 inch speakers as I was looking for a 4. They would likely fit as most seem to. The other mentioned 4 inch speakers also have too large of magnet diameters.

Re: Fitting a 4" speaker/Comp in the Dash of WK2

Could you please take a picture of how this sits in there when "mounted" so I can see just how big it is and how much clearance there is once you get the vent cover on? I would really appreciate it! Thank you!!

Re: Fitting a 4" speaker/Comp in the Dash of WK2

I was thinking of sealing my 3.5" aftermarket speaker, but the whole are also doubles as defrost venting. I didn't really want to mess with the airflow of the defrost. Speakers definitely sound better when sealed against a solid surface.

I actually got the cover on with it, but it was sitting on the magnet and not mounted which I didn't like. I then got the JL C2 4 inch and it fits but don't love the sound and doesn't come close to matching the Focals I have.

I'm still waiting for a better option but for now that's what fits. I think the Focal 100KRS woofer would fit but I don't have a place for the crossover or know where to mount the tweeter.

Not too many 4inch coaxials with small enough magnets.

voyagerx, I assume the Focal Access 100 CA1 is too big on a lot of levels. That might be perfect for you, if it fit.
