dash board

Postby treel98 » Mon Jul 08, 2013 10:55 am

Ok first off i want to say sorry for posting topic after topic. Now i want to say that i am a "audiophile" I take pride in my sound system for my birthday i am getting a new set of 5x7 for the back seats. Then when my cousin fixes his blazer i get a set of 6.5inch door speakers. i need to get some dash speakers but i cant find where they are and what size are they.

The dash speaker (1) is I think a 6x5. It is a crummy speaker. I wouldn't waste my time trying to put 2 speakers in the dash. I would get some good 6x9 and mount them in the kick panels. You could install them in the door but hacking up a door can lead to nightmares later. If you put
speakers in a door be sure to use a waterproof membrane behind the speakers..

thanks for the info and you are talking about the kick pannles right inside the doors right i dont think that they would fit there because of the mounting depth could you post pictures of where you are talking about i like the idea and the only reason i dont think i have a dash speaker is because when i fade all the sound to the front and away from the back i dont hear anything at all

The kick panels are down by your feel the left and right panels go from the firewall to the front edge of the door. Not the doors at all. The kick panels can be modified and you can actually mold in some Kool looking boxes into them with fiberglass. I don't have any kick panel photos at this time.

Good Luck :cool:

IIRC, the computer is behind the right kick panel. You might be able to surface mount a speaker there, but no flush mount. But I wouldn't want the speaker magnetic driver that close to the brain box.
