    I just received my speaker adapters from Marv and am curious if anybody knows what size, pitch and length of bolts I'll need to install them. Or if you know what size and pitch the stock bolts are that would help, too. I won't have time to take the door apart and look so if anybody knows, I'd really apreciate it. Thanks!

    I would take one bolt down to a local hardware store, and have them measure the stock one. You should be able to tell what size you will need from there.

    Well I'll offer this up. I made my own my adapters out of 3/4" mdf, counter sunk the screw heads 1/4"... maybe 3/8" (can't remember for certain), and used no. 12 x 1-1/4" Pan head phillips screws. They threaded into the stock holes nice and snug.

    Based on Marv's adapter stock thickness and whether they have countersunk screw holes you should be able to figure out what you need. Hope this helps... Good luck!

    *Note: The screws I used have a much more coarse thread than the stock screws... I don't want anyone thinking they're longer replacements.

    Go read his how to thread here on the board. I'm 99% sure he mentions what bolt to get in there.

    I know he at least gave enough info for me to run to Lowe's and get bolts, nuts, and washers to work for my adapters he made me. Sorry I can't tell you what size, but it's been almost a year since I installed mine.

    From Mr Marv's how-to thread, if you're using the stock plastic mounts, you'll need 30mm M6 bolts for a 3/4" thick baffle, and longer for a 1" baffle (probably around 35mm). If you're not using the stock plastic mounts, then it doesn't matter as long as the screw is long enough, but that's what she said :D
