View Full Version : Shallow mount component suggestions

01-05-2012, 05:29 PM
I'm looking for shallow 6.5" speakers because I'm going to be doing a build for a friend of mine. He's got a 1965 Mustang convertable. I'm going to be putting in aftermarket kick panels (http://www.cjponyparts.com/images/1000/SPK21.jpg)which, from reading a few forums, offer about 2" of mounting depth on a good day. Most come with little bitty Pioneer G-series speakers (gray coned ones found at Wal-Mart, good for about 30w). Of course, this won't do going down the highway with the top down.

I've been eyeballing these guys (http://www.woofersetc.com/p-7558-dua-216-mb-quart-discus-65-2-way-component-system.aspx), as their mounting depth is about 1.75", and I'd put about 75w to them.

I wanted to see if there were any suggestions for other shallow-mount component sets. Keep the depth under 2" and ideal power handling is between 50-100w.
