Hey guys one of my mates has an old e30 318i and has traded it in on a VY exec, anyways he had a really nice system in this car With pioneer pro series splits in the front and alpine type r 6x9's in the back running of a cadance amp. Ive stolen all of this off him and fitted the amp and the splits into my car but now i have a problem fitting these 6x9's. I have an LPG tank in the back so cutting the rear shelf was never really an option as i wouldnt do it anyway! ive got spacers but.... these speakers have a massive magnet on the bottom and still sit up :'( btw the spacers are about 3 to 4cms high i think. My cars and ef futura so i was thinking about getting some 6x9' boxes and fitting them in the back because ive already got the damn rear headrest blocking my vision. What are some other options guys!

uh tuff break that seems like ur only one, other then buy a smaller speaker :P haha yea i kno how big they are i got a set in my car :D but they are sooooo sweet, just dont expect bass from those speaker boxes cos 6x9's get their bass from the boot :P will be good for mid highs tho

just got the 6" speakers - a clean & tidy look, you lose no view from your rear-view mirror etc - i wouldn't bother with them! :)
