Installing kick panel speakers

Anyone installed Pioneer speakers in kick panels? I can't figure out how to attach the plastic surround. The instructions show it being used with the little bolts, nuts and washers provided but they aren't long enough to even go through the surround. I assume these mount flush to the outside of the kick panel. If so do those repro 4x6 grills cover them? They will be about 3/8 inch raised above the surface of the kick panel and all the pics I see of those grills don't look like they are that thick.

Re: Installing kick panel speakers

Ken, I used speed nuts from home depot, slide them on to the kickpanel itself. You can see one of the silver speed nuts peeking out on the upper right of the speaker frame.




I then used a long oval head screw in the factory style grill to go through the speaker frame into the speed nuts. You can see the screws and grill lower left on this pic.



I used the Kappa 2-way 4x6" speakers in my kick panels.

Re: Installing kick panel speakers

Did your Kappa speakers come with the covers (grills)?

I think they did come with something, but the ones in the pics are the repro 69 Camaro factory ones I got at Ricks.

Re: Installing kick panel speakers

The attaching screws will pull the kick panel tight to the grill.

Re: Installing kick panel speakers

I used the grills that came with my speakers. It does extend out from the panel quite a bit and still does not interfere with the E-brake.

I also used the speed nuts on the panel to hold everything together. Worked quite well.

Here's my example:

I can't complain, but sometimes I still do.
