    Window Rail help

    Hey, I've heard a lot about moving the window rail, and how it will help deeper speakers fit. I got kicker ss series, and they're just a liiitle bit too deep. Im using 2 pieces of MDF as spacers (totaling 1 thick), and the speakers are hitting my door panels when they hit some lower frequencies. I was wondering if anyone could explain (with pics if possible) how to move the window rail.
    I'm open to any other suggestions on how to fix this problem too.

    I think you can actually space out the bottom of the door with some spacers from iaperformance. I think it spaces the bottom of the door out about 1/2 for added clearance.

    +1 for iaperformance. I used one of their kits to make my focals fit.

    Dunno if you still need help or not, but I had the same problem as you. All you have to is put a few washers on that gold screw located on the side of the speaker. IIRC you put washers on the silver screw. Make sure you put the washers on from the inside of the door panel, so they are inside the door panel and not on the outside. I think 3 or 4 is the max, any more and you can't retighten the gold washer. (Sorry, It's been about a year since I did an audio install so I'm not 100% sure.)

    (Note: thats not my pic, I just used it as an example.)

    thanks a lot for telling me about the iaperformance spacer things. That sounds liek itll do the job.
    by putting washers behind that gold screw, will it increase the rear clearance as well?
    I need to get about another 1/8-1/4" if i can.
