Anyone have two rear speaker brackets I could beg or buy? Need the black plastic bracket(two) that attach the rear hanging speakers in a non-ac Van. Or beer!

Thanks

Thanks Matt-
anyone have these and made modifications, to have a better sound. I haven't explored the options yet, just saw this post and asked my questions. Thanks

I put 4 inch Polks in a pair of the periscope speakers. The key to improving the sound in those little cabinets is 1.the source, the radio you are using and 2. running new speaker wire if you presently have the common ground wiring which is horrible on your ears and bad for most newer stereo units You try to use the common ground wiring for stereo. Right now, I've just got them wired in mono, one channel to both speakers and it sucks! I think the Polks are a better made speaker than the little original Blaupunts, but sound wise I can only speak for mine as they were both blown. One thing I had to do to put the new drivers in the periscope boxes was to pull the metal grills off, and cut a little on two sides of each speaker whole to accommodate the speaker. The grills pretty much disintegrated in my hand at the edges, but the speakers look really good without them.
I will post a picture...

I bought some orbs, goggle them, little spherical speakers, big sound from small speakers, and mounted them with L brackets from home depot. They sound great, super clear, quantum leap over stock boxes.
