Can you make a small mounting baffel to get the speaker off of the plastic piece and still allow it to be sealed? Also, if that wont work what about the JBL GT0328 or 329 3.5" speaker? Wouldnt that work? or would they not sound the same?
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.
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!!

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 have. Quite a bit of trimming, trial and error, and research to get one to fit. First tried the JBL P462 since it had the right mounting depth and the smallest cutout requirement for 4inch speakers I could find. However the magnet was too wide and hit the plastic a bit in an area at the bottom that couldn't be trimmed. 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.
