i did the same thing as jim in my '73...except i have 4" round speakers in the kickpanels and 6.5" speakers in the rear deck. alpine makes a unique 4" that is shallow enough to fit. the sound is awesome.

incorporated in them, fabricated from ABS plastic sheet and tubing - no extra holes anywhere, sound quality is excellent. Five & one quarter inch rounds are about the biggest speakers that the panels can accomodate.

Also managed to fit a pair of Pioneer "free air" eight inch subs under the back seat - the system could use a pair of 6" mids to fill in the mid range, but overall, it sounds pretty good, everything is out of sight, and I didn't have to cut any holes anywhere....

....not!!!

I bought some spacers similar to Jim's set up,

made by Pioneer they move the speaker about an

inch and a half away from the mounting surface

and will help you get a decent sized speaker on

the A pillar kick panel.

you can do what I did, and cut out a spacer from a scrap 2x6 piece (4 inch speaker--you'll probably have to use a piece of 2x8 for a 5 incher), bored a hole in the middle big enough to clear the speaker frame/magnet and covered the edge with black vinyl upholstery material. Drilled mounting holes thru the wood and carefully poked them thru the carpet, so if you remove the speakers someday the holes won't show. These are 4 inch coaxes, and they work just fine, along with 4x6 coaxes in the back package shelf, mounted in vintage Blaupunkt surface mounts.

Drop me a line if you want detailed info, but DON'T

CUT YOUR NEW DOOR PANELS!!!!

Cheers

I used the old under dash panels,.. covered them with tin foil

and then coated one side with fiberglass. I peeled the tin foil

off the old panel and i had a new panel in the same shape

but made from fiberglass. i cut a hole in it and mounted a 6"

speaker in the new panels. Those were the speakers i had

lying around but i should have used smaller ones. the stereo

can't drive those speakers to their max output and they need

to be because they face down-ish.

e-mail me and i'll tell you more if you are interested and have

questions.

They're round, as mentioned they're made by

Pioneer, but that's all I can tell you I'm afraid - box

is long chucked and there's nothing on them

number wise.

You should find them in any Pioneer brochure.

HTH, Nick
