W plate (2000) Megane Door Speakers

After being really dissatisfied with the speakers in the megane I thought i'd spend some of my christmas money on some replacement speakers. I looked a few custom fits and they all said i needed 17cm.

After a quick search on ebay i saw some rather nice pioneer TS-E176C which i got for 35 inc delivery.

I tried to fit them today and they don't fit! Looks like i have 13cm in the front! To make them fit I'm going to have to take off the door card and do a bit bodging, or is there some form of adaptor to aid fitment?

They fit under the grills but get no where near (nor line up with) the screw holes

Hi there , you can get adapters to convert various speaker sizes but these will add depth to the overall fitting,

IIRC, all of the modern Renaults use 13cm speakers.

I'd put them back on eBay and buy some which are the correct size. You can make them fit, but it's not an especially easy fix and it is very visible too.

13cm drivers - provided they have small mags - fit perfectly behind the OEM grilles.
