I had to cut my own. Get a jigsaw, and some 1/2" mdf from home depot. Jigsaw is real easy to use.

the baffle/spacer is not really needed, unless you have a HUGE magnet.

i just did a full system on an IS300 a couple weeks ago, and just screwed the speakers to the rear deck with some self tappers.

That is true, if you don't mind making 8 new holes in your car. Maybe, do a test fitting to see if the magnet hits the torsion bar or not? I know I had no clearance issues with my Kaptions, but I really didn't want to make new holes in mine.

So I cut out the brackets and they didnt fit because of the screws I used to bolt the speaker onto it.

I got fed up and butchered my old speaker and used the old casing to house the new one.



Used ties to hold the speaker and to my amazement there isnt any vibration lol.

I couldnt do that. The speaker magnet was hitting the trunk bar below.
