    just got new speakers for xmas and really want to fit them but as its new years eve etc so no post until next week

    any way of fitting my new speakers to the front without adpartors ???

    by spacing them out and drilling a hole in the door card without seeing it??

    Not really no... especially if you want actual high fidelity sound from them... you may as well leave them connected in the box if planning to fit them like that...

    8L front speakers use 3 screws and are a smaller size to the typical 13cm replacements people buy... bodging them in won't sound any better than playing tunes from your phone..

    Andymac has some nice MDF ones, would work fine. Also you have a max mounting depth of 54mm or so...
