Anyone know of a pre-fab spacer for adding 3/4" of height to the back of a 6.5" speaker?

 

I have a hole depth of 2 3/4:"  and a speaker depth of 3 1/2 "

"

I'd use the PVC trim board stuff That's used for outside finish carpentry.  Azek is one brand.  It's light, easy to work, not expensive, stable, doesn't rot and can go without paint.

Starboard once again is your friend here. No rot problems like plywood will have.

Most car audio shops will have plastic spacers especially for this purpose. They are cheap and easy.
