Re: Need Help!!! Speakers dont lign up?!?!

Ah, yes. I ran into this scenario when I put my Kenwoods in. There was a little adapter-type plate in the box for each 6.5". If yours didn't come with it, your best bet is to buy some, I believe most audio places have/can order you some cheap. My friend elected to drill new holes in his, which is an option, but he didn't drill them right and now they dont sit flush and they rattle.

If you havent solved this problem....drill new holes, get some of the screw clips that slide over the sheet metal, preferrably 4 per speaker, then put a small bead of a quality adhesive caulk around the edge of the speaker between the water shield preferrably between the water shield and door metal as well but if you dont strip the screw clips youll be fine.
