Okay here is my issue. I have a brand new 2013 Jetta TDI with the Fender Audio system. I bought all BA Pro 50 SE for the front and rear doors. Now I went to three audio places and they said they wont fit. Due to how Volkswagen places them in there. They I need special brackets but they don't carry them. Crutchfield has some, but they have terrible reviews. Anybody on here who is an audio junkie that can help. I have bought everything, JL. Audio HD 900/5. JL Audio perfect fit stealth box. Wires, cables.

Without pics I can't imagine what the problem is, but can't the stereo shop just fab up some MDF adapters for you? Thats what most of us have, beit 'TacoTunes' adapters or others, they're very simple to make.

Got any pics though? Usually its a mounting hole and depth issue, MDF rings solve that issue.

I don't have any pics because I don't know how to remove the door skin. And three installers have refused to take the job

If the shops you're going to think that's some sort of complicated mess they're retarded and aren't fit to work on your car. Don't go back to any of them.

What you need is a baffle cut for those specs as Brian stated. Those spacers in the pictures look like 1.5" thick or something similar. You likely need one that thick but with the cutout that will fit your new speakers. Basically any idiot can get the job done since they are simple circles and nothing crazy in terms of shape.

I would also suggest you join a jetta forum as I'm sure you're not the first person to run into this issue.

I have joined one on Edmunds but it sucks I put this question on there 2 weeks ago and have got nothing. Do you know of any better forums by any chance.. This site is amazing so I would like to find one comparable. Because nothing is even close to this one
