View Full Version : Mounting depth worries

04-10-2005, 08:06 PM
My dad wants to replace all the speakers in his 93 Landcrusier. The front ones are 6 1/2", but the problem there is only 1 1/2" space between the metal they mount in and the window behind it. The stock speaker looks really thin. Can anyone recoment some speakers that have a shallow mouting depth??

Also there are 4" speakers in the rear door and there is 1 1/4" between the metal and the window. I have done a lot of speaker install and never have seem such shallow depths :crap:

Time for some baffles :)

Correction I think the fronts are 5 1/4" is there any speaker fitment guides on the net I can check so I dont accidently order the wrong size??

Im not sure baffles would work cuase I think the speaker would hit the grill

kick panels are the way to go.

6.5's up front
doesnt say anything about shallow mounting on SD
Just check them out and see what manufacturers offer 6.5" shallow mount speakers

Kick panels are way to much labor for a car that isent even mine. Supa C where did you find out the speaker sizes??

I agree on the kick panels, to much work for just your dad
