  • fitzie from the forum has done a great rear T-bar 6" x 9" speaker install. He used Autoleads SA-007  6 x 9 Speaker Spacers bought from Ebay, and cut them to suit the T-bar profile and the speakers.

Here's a pre speaker picture

and one with the speakers fitted

and the driving head unit

The tools fitzie used was a Stanley Knife for the guide holes and then a hack saw (without the handle to cut them) fitzie seemed to think a Jig Saw would be better but he didn't have access to one.
To shape the Spacers he used a coping saw and a selection of metal working files.
fitzie did the shaping by eye but again felt with better tools this could be made more accurate.

I think it looks great, well done fitzie.
