    Need help choosing 4" speakers?

    Hello,
    I am new to this forum and am looking for some professional advice.
    I am in the processs of restoring my 65 Mustang and at the moment wish to keep is as factory looking as possible...plus I have blown my budget on other material.....

    Anyhow, I purchased a reproduction AM/FM radio with Aux input that produces 200W to 4 channels. As for the speakers, they are mounted underneath the dash and with a bracket I have purchased that will allow for me to install two 4" speakers.

    So the question is, with just two 4" speakers in the entire car, what is going to produce the loudest and best range of sound?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd fab up a different bracket and at least go to 6.5" drivers. 4" are pretty useless especially in a car that rumbles a bit.

    Beautiful ride!

    4s are hard to fit. 3.5s perhaps.

    National Parts Depot sells a plate that has two 3.5s in it that mounts in the defroster.

    Or you can put one 4x10 there.

    slim, thats what i thought at first, but I actually ordered the bracket with the two 4" speakers from NPD...I'm looking to replace them with Infinity 8022i speakers...i hope it fits...

    if i decide to go with 6.5" kick panel speakers up front would i be better off with the 4x10 in the dash?

    thanks againg,
    joe
