I had the same exact thing with the same speakers, took a few pictures of how i did it but took most after i build it so pictures may not help, but i posted them at <a href="http://www.danieldodd.us/Boat%20Projects/Tower%20Speakers/index.htm" target="_blank">http://www.danieldodd.us/Boat%20Projects/Tower%20Speakers/index.htm</a> <BR>Basically i bought a piece of 22ga steel from Lowes and gut out a ring to mount to the can (make sure you paint). I cut them out to the size where the speaker grill covers them up. They don't look bad at all, you cant see the bracket i made, and sound pretty good.

Hey Cris, <BR>I Had the same problem with the same cans and speakers. I called a stereo shop local that does customer work and they were able to modify some existing adapter rings they had and rivet them to the cans. Then I just mounted the speakers/grills to the adapter rings. They had it done in a couple of hours and it only cost me 50 bucks (for 4 speakers). Here's a couple of pics...as you can see, there is barely a gap and you can't really tell there's an adapter there unless you're looking for it. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/564998.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/564999.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/565000.jpg" alt="Upload">

Sell the MMC's on e-bay, buy the lighter marine rated db675's from woofersetc.com for $92/pair, hit the exposed face with a buffing wheel and you are done. Been there.
