If you look closely at the mounting holes, they are on a smaller diameter circle than other speaker mounting patterns. This tiny detail means that if the speaker relief hole is cut even slightly larger than customary for a speaker of this size you might not have enough flange width to install the four screws. In which case you'll encounter a very difficult installation that involves a fabricated backing plate (ugly), an adaptor plate if you can find one (unsuccessful for me thus far), or spacer rings that are available (black and aren't guaranteed to solve the problem - application-specific). I wish I had checked this tiny detail before letting the return period expire. Now a simple replacement job has turned into a major P1TA.

                Purchased 4 speakers 2 years ago, now replacing 2. However, the 2 exposed to full sunlight are the ones where the cones fell apart. The ones installed in the shade of the T-top, appear like new. They seem to be OK with moisture but not so good with UV exposure.......try to mount them in the shade.
