Rear Speaker Fitting???

Post by zeoran »

I wanted to put rear speakers into my 1999 Aspencade and I remember seeing posts on here that said the best option was the Polk DB401's not only because they sounded good but also because they didn't require "modifying" the armrest cubbyhole they fit into. I originally didn't follow that, I wound up getting the Big Bike kit that included the wiring harness, fader and rear speakers and installed them, with some minor modification to the base. But not wanting to cheat myself, I ordered the Polk DB401's and went to install them today and it turns out they actually fit WORSE than the ones included in the kit from Big Bike and I can't hear a really discernable difference in sound quality either.

Did I get something wrong or did they change the DB401's?
