Who glues speakers to the mounts Help?

So I decided to put new speakers in my wife's 2005 crewcab Z71
I quickly realized the previous owner had already switched the factory speakers for a set of really aweful Blaupunkt speakers.
When I got to shaping out the rears I found that they had used some type of adhesive to glue the speakers to the factory door mounts.
I really don't know what they used but nothing seems to be separating the speakers from the mountains.
By chance does anyone have the part number for those mounts or have an extra set you're willing to part with?

Thank you in advance for any assistance offered.

And for those one or two characters dying to say do a search. I already did that and found to be most unfruitful...

Crutchfield has the mounts pretty cheap, I think.

I have the Crutchfield mounts. No Good. The rear factory door mount is like a 1 1/2' deep plastic spacer block.

It appears that the OEM mounts are part of the speaker assembly:

Correct, the mounts are interal to the speaker. The previous owned likely cut the speaker out and use the original bucket for the new speaker. Very very common.

You can get spacers for the front from Best Buy that will probably work. The ones from Crutchfield require you to mount your speaker to the adapter ring, then mount the ring to the door. Same as from BB, but the BB ones are easier.

If you have a crew cab, I don't think there is a spacer on the market that first properly (I didn't find one for mine). I custom cut a ring. The rear requires like 3/4" I believe to allow the speaker not to interfere with the glass.

The Polk speakers I installed came with an adapter ring, but is not typical of all speakers.

Thank You cart7881 & 08Canyon
The front went really easy with the Crutchfield Mounts. That totally explains what I found on Walmart.com
Looks like a trip Home Depot or Lowes is set for 1st thing in the morning.
Thank You Again !!!

Ahh...now I see. Those 'cheap Blaukpaunt" I believe are the factory speakers, as in I don't think a previous owner installed and glued them in place.

Nice weekend upgrade project!

If that board rattles, just get some felt to build a circle around the mounting locations.

I got some scrap sound deadner from the shop and cut it up to put behind my spacers.

Man I laugh at your thread title every time I scroll past it.

FYI; My Kenwood KFC-XP184C speakers came with brackets that were a perfect OEM replacement, no mods, but I can't seem to find them sold by themselves. They are for "7 inch" speakers as well, but I think they would still work.

It sounds like you already have your problem resolved.
I would have suggested that you get some out of a junk yard.
Good luck on your project.

Most junk yards will charge you around $5.00 each for replacements if you go take them off.
