Re: [DML] Stock Speakers: (WasTo Cut or Not to Cut)



Due to the contortion factor, I found this to be one of the worst 
tasks I've attempted on my D in the year-and-a-half I've had it. 
Getting in-and-out of the tight spaces holding a flashlight in my 
aching jaw, dropping the nuts in my eyes more than once and having 
to get wriggle back out from under the dash to find them, etc., was 
pure agony.  A pair of safety glasses with lights would be worth 
considering...
 
The speakers themselves were no problem... I bought a pair of Bosch 
3.5's for $30 at Fry's Electronics. They had just a very slight 
center dome protrusion.  They'll handle 40 watts or so. I just 
didn't crank 'em down hard when reinstalling and haven't noticed any 
rattling or dash problems.

Fortunately, since then, John Spangler came up with a relatively 
painless way to accomplish the speaker replacement task using a 
little glue and a mirror. Check out his front speaker project at 
johnspangler.com and plan before you work!  Your back will thank 
you.
