what are the type of kicker speakers that are currently in the Outback V? I want to replace my crappy stock speakers that are in the 2003 mobius LSV with these I found on Ebay, are these the right ones? will they fit? http://cgi.ebay.ca/KICKER-KM620-6-195W-2-WAY-MARINE-COAXIAL-SPEAKERS-NEW_W0QQitemZ120262425313QQihZ002QQcategoryZ3292QQ ssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
I'm going to replace 4 of them for now, most of them are blown out and sound horrible....

Please check the Classifieds Boards. SanMarzano and myself each have 3 pairs for sale! His listing was first, so hit him up. If they're gone, let me know.

the Kicker KS65 is a perfect fit and they are marine rated. I had them in my Outback and they sound great.

Awesome thanks guys. Crutchfield USA has those speakers on sale, they dont ship them to canada however. Crutchfield Canada just straight up doesn't have those speakers at all. Those speakers look way better than the ones on ebay I spec'd. I'll be gettin the KS650's, and this is an easy trade correct? take the old ones out, and just rewire the new ones in?

I would check the hole dimensions on the Outback V. looks like kicker is copying polk for the 2008 models and have added 1/4" to the diameter. there are polk threads on hear obout increasing the diameter slightly. Jesse C has great instructions as well as pics for the install for an older lsv which is the newer OBV.

You will more than likely have to drill new holes which I do not find to be a problem. It also seems that Skiers Choice cut larger holes in the 05 and up OBV. The issue I had was that it left a noticeable "Crush ring" around the speaker in the vinyl. I make rings out of ABS plastic that can be painted or used as is (black) that can hide the crushed vinyl ring around the speaker. Good luck with your install.

Got the raw ABS from Ebay! I have a special cutting bit for my drill press. Let me know if you want me to make a set for you. We could work something out. The sheets usually run about $5.00 a piece and then it just takes a little work to get them right. Let me know.

Here is the product that I purchased from Hole Pro. I have also used it to install three different sets of recessed lighting. I wish I had bought the one that had the catch guard so it would not make such a mess. It works really well when chucked into the drill press. Just use some calipers to measure the outer diameter of the crushed vinyl, I made a set for another member and his were just over 7" at 7 1/8" I think and I cut in th inner diameter to match some speakers that he had bought.

I had the same issue with my last boat. I also made some abs rings using cheap kitchen cutting boards found at the dollar store. I covered them in vinyl in a accent color found in the boat. I got it as a scrap for $5 at the local upholstery shop. I used 3M Super 77 glue and they worked perfect.
