Mounting Bracket for Dash Speakers?


Recommended Posts

Newbie here... Own a 99 Boxster... Any idea on where I can buy the required mounting speaker bracket for the 4" dash speakers??? I really want to replace the factory speakers and have read where you need a special bracket to accomplish this... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! :)

I'm in the process of doing this right now. I'm using the rings from the old speaker which are not a problem to remove at all. Just take an exacto knive to trim out the oem speaker cone, then use an open ended hacksaw to cut away the plastic speaker supports. Quick work with a file trims the nubs down. Takes less time than to place the order for the brackets.

I'm replacing with Polk Audio 4" speakers which requires using some good quality tin snips to remove some of the speakers metal support plate.

Good luck!

Most people just cut / modify the existing bracket to house new speakers.

Certainly there are "replacement" bracket kits out there and to each his own but.....

- why spend that much $ when you can easily modify the bracket for free?

- you'll never ever go back to stock once you pull out the stock speakers and see how really pathetic they are!

- replacement brackets (the add-on kind like vfbox) will reduce the available mounting depth for replacement speakers and on some MYs there is already a clearance issue on the passenger side speaker ;)

So..... I'd just modify the existing bracket like others are suggesting.

Here's a link to the instructions I used

Good luck and congrats on your new to you Boxster. They're truly great cars.

Enjoy and post some pics of your ride soon :)
