    when upgrading front and rear speaker's do you use mdf rings on the rear's aswell?or just the front ones...and do you fix the mdf rings with just the factory 3 screw holes or do you drill two new ones so that they are fixed with four like the new speakers do?cheer's..

    You need them on the front to clear the windows, normally just mount them using the original screws/holespeakers to the , then screw the speakers to the MDF.
    Spacer rings aren't necessarily required in the rear on a 3Dr.

    If your fitting some good speakers it may be worth while making it as secure as possible, some people fibreglass the mdf to the door, I used a hot glue gun on mine, this seals the door better (more important closer to the speaker) and also makes it more solid, any energy that is used to vibrate the mdf ring or the door is wasted energy which could be used for music, you also dont want any soundwaves from the rear of the speaker meeting with the front of the speaker as they will cancel each other out.

    Some say its overkill, but its not exactly hard to do so why not?
