Re: Spacers...

We often use fibreglass ‘Pro Pods’ for a cheap effective alternative. If you have a look on our website down the bottom of the front page you’ll see the two image files:

Is that the sort of thing you’re looking for champ?

Re: Spacers...

You can get wooden ones covered in vinyl. I have a set holding my 6x9's in the parcel shelf.

BUT, with a gas tank in the back, I doubt a pre-made spacer will help. I had 6x9's in the back of my old 85' XF and that was on gas. I ended up making my own spacers to put them in, you have to angle them otherwise they won't go in because of the back window.

Either that, or get some fibreglassing done, something that will just sit on top of your mdf parcel shelf.

Re: Spacers...

i made some for my last XF cause my gas tank got in the way. just made them out of a fat block of wood. i was told that wooden ones will make the speakers sound heaps better than crappy plastic- cause the plastic causes heaps of vibrations.
My XF: 4.1 carby, genie extractors, 2 1/4 exhaust, 4 speed, lowered, tinted windows, body kit, spoiler, mags + other stuff

Currently missing a set of splits and my gear knob as some bastard stole them! Damn thieves!
