Ever seen these speakers?

These are speakers mounted under the dash with ( what looks like) factory mounting pieces. I was wondering if anyone can give me some information about them. Thanks

The far left and far right underdash panels have always been popular locations for front speakers, especially for cars with A/C consoles, which eliminates the console as a location. The right side is especially tight and a 4" round, or, at best, a 4"x 6" oval, speaker is the maximum size that will fit in both locations.  I currently have a pair of 4" round Becker speakers in those two locations on my '76, but I originally I drilled only the left side and installed a CB speaker.  "Breaker, breaker, 1-9!"

 

I'm not particularly familiar with your CTS speakers  -- they were still U.S.-manufactured in the '60's and '70's, but I don't know how to date them -- and, of course, all '02 radios, speakers, and antennas were installed post-factory -- most often by dealerships, but also by owners, independent garages, and stereo shops -- so there was no real standardization.  Those are plain old underdash panels that have been cut or drilled.

 

Regards,

Ah! The plot thickens! I was sure the panels were stock ( look pretty convincing!) Speaking of CB's, I have a Clip on the side of my console for a CB handset. I may just leave it there for nostalgia sake. Thanks Steve.

I think the panels themselves are original but to Steve’s (@conserv ‘s) point, the holes were not.
