Tweeter Speaker (pics)

I'm replacing my tweeter speakers because they sound horrible. I bought a pair of power bass tweeters that are "direct OEM drop ins". Well, I went to replace them and the magnet on the bottom hits a metal mounting bracket (my guess is, it's to the airbag assembly??) but anyways, it doesn't fit and I don't know what to do as far as making it fit...what are your suggestions? However the same speaker, fits on the drivers side. Pictures:

Fab up a little spacer to get it to clear the bracket? Or maybe just some washers in between the screws? How much space are we talking here? All else fails you can just relocate the tweeters to a better location.

it would take a lot of washers haha. Where else would you put the tweeter?

Get a piece of metal tubing long enough to fill the gap and run the screw down the hollow center.

Their is no gap, I need more space because the speaker won't fit in the dash due to the size of the magnet.

Not real familiar with the interior layout of the liberty. If you relocate, you want them both aimed at the drivers head if possible.

I've seen lots of write ups where PVC pipe is used as a spacer between the factory location and the new speaker. Also maybe check out ebay or crutchfield to see if anyone makes tweeter relocation kits.

But if you are going to all this trouble, you may want to run full components, amps, etc. just send the supposed "drop in" replacements back to whoever sold them to you.

I would say the "direct OEM drop ins" are not the case and return to manufacturer.
