? On speaker installation

Recommended Posts

My question is How do the 6x9's mount to the rear dash?

Do they go face up from inside the trunk held in place with speaker trim or do they go in from the top down.

they won't go in from the top down, thats all I know. Not sure if mounting holes for modern 6x9's are already in place for "underneath" mounting. please don't cut. someone will be cussing you 50 years from now heheheh.

Thanks I tryed to drop them in from the top but they did not fit. (I must say the thought did cross my mind to cut the opening bigger) I am glad I asked here first.

Whie we are on the subject of mounting speakers.

Does anyone have an easy way to install the 2 dash speakers?

I ordered a set of speakers from Harmons that were supposed to bolt right up.

They sent me 2-3 1/2 inch 40 watt kenwood speakers with mounting brackets attached.

I understand I must remove the original brackets to make them work and use those holes but I have a clearance problem on the driver's side between the windshield and the gauge cluster.

Do I have to modify the bracket somehow to get it to fit?

Actually all the 72 Monte's I have ownerd had had 2 side speakers.

Maybe the center mono speaker is a rarity.

Monte's with factory A/C all came with two front speakers, as the center dash air outlet would interfere with the center speaker. Monte's with the factory stereo had two front speakers as well.

Cars without air conditioning got one front center speaker with the mono radio. All cars with air conditioning got two front speakers if the radio was mono or stereo. The extra duct for the air conditioning didn't leave enough room for the center front speaker.

The only problem you may run into in getting a new speakers to fit in on the drivers side.

I'm still struggling with this problem.

Not positive, but would suspect only 70-72 Chevelle and El Camino would be exactly the same. Lemans, Skylark, etc. have different dash set up.

"big jim what problems u havin post some pic of the problem spot."

 

Problem is getting the new speakers magnet to clear the printed circut. Original speaker had a rectangular magnet that was angled to avoid this problem. It can be done. Just need to be careful.
