RE: [DML] Speaker replacement



I made my own.  I made a template of the shape of the wheel arch, the
top and bottom of the luggage compartment, and on the drivers side a cut
out for the cable release and two pieces of plywood so they could snugly
slip into place, I cut holes in the center of the ply for the speakers
and mounted them.  I then got some 2" foam and cut it slightly large
than the ply, again with a hole in the center for the speaker.  I
removed the speaker, mounted the foam to the ply with spray adhesive,
then covered the ply and foam with grey cloth the color of the carpet.
I cut an opening in the cloth for the speaker, re installed it, put on
the grills and was able to wedge it in place.  The foam being slightly
oversized keeps the speaker well in place and I still have most of my
cargo space.

It took a couple of hours overall.  I consider the pieces I have now to
be temporary as I installed 4 X 10 speakers I purchased to install in
the stock location, and quickly came to the same conclusion that they
would be a pain to put in.  Eventually I'll build new ones with better
speakers.

Subject: [DML] Speaker replacement

I have read some of the tech notes on replacing the OEM rear speakers
and to
be honest, I want to avoid cutting through sealer, etc. if at all
possible.
Does anyone make a replacement box or board (that doesn't take up all of
that luggage space) that has a speaker(s) replacement built in?  I'm not
looking for a boom box window rattler type of system.  Just a decent
quality
speaker set that can be wired in en lieu of the blown originals.

Thanks for your help.
