? On speaker installation

Recommended Posts

I haven't figured out yet how to post pictures here.

I probably need to cut the bracket down some to accept the larger magnet speaker.

I seem to remember drilling the rivets out on the old speakers and using the angle pieces to mount the new speakers to the bracket so they will mount the same way.

I saw a set of brackets on ebay for sale where one of them looked like the factory bracket but the other was a little different. Maybe for a later model and they had cut away some of it.

I was finally able to get the drivers side speaker in after butchering the mounting bracket and manipulating the mounting ears But it is still right at the gauge cluster and printed circuit. Haven't installed the radio yet. I hope it will work ok.

Big Jim, I would suggest insulating around the speaker magnet to avoid any contact with the dash light circuit on board.
