Kick panel speaker mouting

Is there a 5" dia. hollow spot below the vent slide behind the kick panels on my 68? I'd like to install some speakers. I'm hoping someone will know because I don't want to get in a bad mood trying to remove those darn things. If had a mirror small enough, I could maybe see through the vent hole. Any experience would be appreciated. Jody

Re: Kick panel speaker mouting

Here is a link to some talk about kick panel speakers in a Nova. Both the Nova's and Camaros share a lot of inner structure and maybe this will help.

http://www.stevesnovasite.com/forums...d.php?t=137757

What I have told the person wanting to do it in his Nova was to make a small inspection hole to be able to feel where the edges of the metal opening is at and then enlarge it to fit. A concern I have with some of the older Camaro's and Nova's is that this area on the cars with bolted on door hinges will probably have depth limitations compared to the newer ones that had the welded on hinges.

Some of the speakers I've installed lately are a lot shallower than the older speakers so they fit into newer cars.

I would still look for pictures of your year car without the kick panel plastic in place and then see how it compares to the pictures in the above link.

Take a look at this .......

I have them in my 68 and am very pleased with them and how everything fit.

At the least you'll see what's behind the kick panel.

They have factory ones mounted there but like Jim said they are not very deep. They also sell factory covers.

You can see mine on the drivers side below the roll bar. Mine is limited for space and that is why I used the factory setup.

Jody,
I saved this picture from this site a while back just in case I ever wanted to install speakers.
