Default 4inch to 3inch Speaker Replacement Fill

Anyone know of an adapter or a clean way of adapting a 3inch speaker into a 4 inch cavity where a 4inch speaker used to be?

Do you have specific sizes/drivers in place?

This is what Bernie did when we fitted the 4" EL70 into a box originally done for the 6.5" Alpair 12 (bezel closer towhat you see on an 8)

That looks awesome. I'm replacing the speakers from the inside of a radio. Right now they are 4 inches squared with 4 holes. I have 3 inch drivers that I want to put in there. Might make a clamp out of instamorph that make a new frame. Thought there might be something better

Planet10, I decided to reuse the speakers that were on the radio for now as I actually appreciated the 50s sound that they provided. Thanks for your help!
