    speaker replacement sizes

    quick question - I did a seach but couldn't find the answer.

    Got a mk3 convertible - I'm assuming the front door speaker sizes will be the same as those on other mk3's. I have got a new set of components (boston acoustics FS6) which are going to replace the current speakers.

    My question - I asked previously and someone said the mk3 can take up to 6.5" (17cm) but my question is, can I just take out the old speaker, put in the new speaker without an adaptor of some kind or will I definitely need to get an adaptor?

    Cheers
    Gareth

    Welcome mate

    This is a very old post so doubt anyone will remember which is why i'm locking it after my post

    Max mounting depth on the MK3's is 56mm
