So today I got around to installing mine finally. Well not really, the speaker magnet hit my window slide and will not fit into the hole flush?

Ideas? Guess its back to MUD to read through the endless threads unless someone here has a solution.

maybe. But I need to source some longer screws to try that. I found some washers in the garage but I didn't have any luck finding screws. Trip to the store. But I might have a hard time getting the speakers under the OEM grills if spaced out too far.

looks like IdahoDoug useds some 3/8" weather strip in the original MUD thread. Did all you do that too? From just eyebaling it I don't think I have the room for that and keep my OEM grills

Default Pioneer TS-G1643R

OK, I got them in tonight. For the record they are the current model Pioneer TS-G1643R speakers. I honestly would not call them a direct fit for my 97. The speaker magnet is pushed up against the window channel inside the door. I had to roll up the window so the channel would flex in a little as I tighted up the screws. The interior door panel also flexed outward a little. I sourced some longer screws and weather stripping as well.

Sound is better but not as good as I expected. However there is something that sounds like bass now so that is good. I'm wondering if its worth doing the rears?

Corbet I didn't bother with any weatherstripping.. and did infinity speakers in back and thought they were worth it, though the grills didn't fit without some custom spacers. I'll show ya in Moab..

I had the exact same problems mounting my front speakers. My sound was WAY better in the front, but the rear pioneers don't make that much difference. And, I thought the rears were more of a pain than the front.

I would not call the fronts a pain as much as a dissapointment that they did not simply bolt it without issue. The rear door panels are eaiser IMO. What problems did you have in the rear?
