    Speaker brackets

    I need some advise please...
    I have taken out my old speaker out of the car door.
    Here...Speaker brackets-21909.jpgSpeaker brackets-s-l225.jpg
    You can see the speaker in its housing and the empty door panel.

    Problem is the new speaker is too small to fit directly onto the door panel. Is the best way forward to make or buy a plastic/wood adapter or bracket?

    I actually thought that the old speaker came out of the plastic housing and I could just put the new one in there but its one solid unit.

    **** I should of checked more throughly!

    Gain on an amplifier to meant to be matched to the output voltage of your headunit. Think 3 volt, 4 volt, 5 volt pre out specs you see on headunit specs. This is how gain works for a given pre out(5 volt) theoretically. However most head units clip(start to distort) at around 80% of your volume so your 5 volt pre out wont give 5 volts Cleanly. You will most likely get 4 volts out at something like 33/40 on your volume knob and would thus set your gain to 4 volts. (these things can be measured with a GOOD Multimeter. )
    80% of your total volume is (max volume) X 0.8.
    Example is 40(is your max volume so, 40 X .8=32

    Thank you.

    Am I right in assuming I just order 6.5" speaker mdd brackets or is it more complex than that?

    Look up a Nissan from the same year. I have a pair of adapter brackets here that would almost certainly work.

    Re: Speaker brackets

    That speaker isn't removable from the pod/bracket?

    My s10 has similar but the pod the 6.5" speakers are into the pod itself is riveted to the door itself.

    The speaker is attached to the speaker housing and it all unscrews so theres just a metal whole left.

    Re: Speaker brackets

    I have just realised I haven't taken into consideration the distance from the bare metal door to the inner door where the speaker grill fits. Thats 32mm according to my calculations. So not only does it need to be 32 mm thick it also has to be the right size for the new speakers and old holes. Re measure I think!

    Re: Speaker brackets

    Try PVC Speaker Adapters - CNC Machined - In Stock or Custom Made. I went through them and purchased speaker brackets specifically made for the model year of my vehicle. Also, just to be on the safe side, order the spacers too. I ordered the 1/4" spacers for both front doors since the speakers I purchased were too big and it would hit the windows when rolled down. Just an FYI, if the spacers still aren't enough and you find that the magnets are still hitting the windows when rolled down, try using 1/4" foam tape to give it that extra space. That's what I did since the magnets were still hitting the windows. Hope this helps you out.
