6.5" coax will fit w/spacer. would be hard to make component look good unless some fiberglassing is done.
Interesting, I thought the kick panel or door were the ideal places to put speakers.I was thinking about doing that but kickpanels are a terrible place to put speakers honestly. A pair of 4" co-ax fit into the dash ahead of the driver and passenger pointing straight up is better than any kickpanel installation. Besides, they get in the way of your feet and can block the e-brake.
In a '69 coupe kick panels? I don't mind cutting things up if I have to.
I want to install component speakers, so the 4x6 plate is out as an option.
Or would a 5.25 be alot easier?
clearance?? slim to none. I'd say 1/16" of an inch at most. The speaker and the plate aren't the real culprits, it's the slight projection of the grill cover itself that get's close to being in the way. The mounting plate could be shaved a little to give it more room, but I doubt you'd end up with much more than 1/4" total.... I rarely use the park brake anyways....Blown69RS,
How is the clearance to the park brake pedal? I would assume that you have to be careful when setting the park brake so that your foot doesn't contact the spaker grill?
