Has anyone replaced their stock 8's in the rear deck with aftermarket speakers?? If so....what kind did you use?? I'm prob. gonna swap mine out soon, just want to find out if there are any ones out there that DROP IN with NO CUTTING.....or if anyone knows the cut-out dia. of the OEM speakers.

Eh, that's just more or less used for water-proofing your door speakers. They are only made of foam and will flex like crazy.....better off just letting the speakers play "free-air"

Re: DROP IN 8" Speakers for R's Rear Deck (s60rdood)

If you're referring to rear deck subs you will have to do a little bit of cutting

Re: DROP IN 8" Speakers for R's Rear Deck (JRL)

the cutting is for the depth of the sub or around? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

They don't just "drop in", the baskets are too wide. I used a sheet metal nibbler to notch for the 8 legs of the baskets and then flush-mounted MD100 tweeters in the hat shelf fiberboard next to the stock grilles.
