Help with Front Speakers in 02


Recommended Posts

you can cut a hole big enough to mount speakers in the kick panels. you will need a sawzall or some other similar saw to cut a circle, but it will work. you can then mount the speaker over the carpet and it will then have a very nice finished look.

Dont know if this is the same guy that you worked with, Bill; 41willyscoupe@comcast.net is the guy that made the fibreglass one's on Scott's Taiga colored touring. (see archives) He (Willys) quoted me somewhere between $125 and $150 per pair. Three different thicknesses with white gelcoat. Scott covered his with carpet, and they looked super. I think he's in MD. Does alot of cycle stuff as well. I'm close to pulling the trigger myself...good luck, Dave V. in NC

here's a picture of Bill Williams' kick panels. Bill gave me awesome installation instructions and how to carpet these panels. Thank you Bill! In the end, I made 2 variations though: a) I didn't cut any metal, and B) I sprayed satin black on them and decided they looked great without carpeting.

dash panels/speaker mounts I fabricated to replace the factory cardboard panels - speakers mount vertically, are nearly invisible from outside the car, and are up out of the way where they won't get kicked.

here's an under-dash pic of the speakers mounted in the cardboard panels. I've done both of my cars this way. I doubt that that the sound quality is going to be as good as mounting in the kick panels. But this is easy and the speakers are hidden.

These are Infinity 4012i's. My Becker Europa is driving them. The poor Becker just doesn't have enough juice to bring out the sound, but it's OK for talk radio.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
