Re: [DML] NewBuild Site Stereo Upgrade

Physically, a 4" speaker  will fit in it's place.  Any 4" speaker is  
better sounding then the the 3.5" speakers.  In this case, bigger is  
better for the sound reproduction.
If you are going to use 4" speakers, just make sure the original hole  
opening underneath the dash can clear the speaker's surround mount  
and the dash's edge is not touching the speaker.  You can always open  
the dash's diameter a little bit wider if you need to to do so with a  
Dremel tool.   Do use goggles for eye protection and long sleeves if  
you don't want to be "itching" when removing the dash's material.   
Also do check any speaker used that the "protruding tweeter" is not  
touching the dash's underside, if it does, used spacers, otherwise it  
will not mount correctly and or can crush or deform the tweeter.

Also to get better sound out of any speakers installed, you would  
have to encase the speakers as to make an box enclosure -- a "speaker  
box."  A box enclosure is not necessary but the boxed enclosure will  
help create some bass tones and add warmth to the sound, other wise  
it will sound "tinny" and maybe shrill -- As an open speaker.

On the glove compartment side it will be tricky to make a box,  
because of the glove compartment is in the way directly under the  
right speaker..... This where you will have to be creative with your  
designs and your abilities with materials as to make the enclosure  
with the same cubic volume enclosure as the left speaker.
