I've been searching like crazy and here's what I think I know. The limitation on the 4X6 speakers is the depth. What I can't find is how much top/bottom mount depth is acceptable. Is it 1.75 inches top mount? Is there any current speakers that will fit? Crutchfield says no. I'm looking to keep it under $100 for the pair if I can. Suggestions? HELP!

Kinda like to do it today so something likely to be at Best Buy, etc. would be cool.

I am using Boston Acoustic 4 x 6 speakers in two vehicle B pillars (Meras) and am quite happy with the sound and installation process. They fit with little or no mods and have been in service for about six years.

None of those available locally. But I found some Polk DSi46 speakers that fit like a glove.

Me too. Both my 87 and 88 had the dash speakers replace with some Pioneers years ago and no issues on fitament. Finding them is hard as I was told they were being discontinued went I bought my last set maybe 11 or 12 years ago.

I replaced my rear speakers with a pair of decent replacement style speakers.



I could get a little bit more depth than the stock speaker... the BOSS speakers that I used pretty much maxed out. They actually touched the rear wall just a hair so I installed a speaker baffle which cushioned the speakers from the wall, and actually helped bring forward the speaker bracket by 1/16th of an inch. The mounting depth was 1" and 11/16ths of an inch.

I have the 5.25 inch speakers up front using the template posted in these forums.

I worked out the wiring tonight. The car sounds pretty decent now. I'd like to ad a sub a little later but the front speakers are not bad on the bass.

I absolutely hated the Scoshe mounting kit. Throwing that plastic crap out. I'll build my own mounting system.

I have performance techniques 4x10 in the dash - I took tntcary's advice and I am not disappointed at all good price and good sound.

I finished up the install tonight. Ipaired my phone via bluetooth and everything works great. Sounds pretty decent for a cheap install. I have about $350 in the speakers and Sony head unit. Having the hands free for my phone is the biggest advantage. I ended up using the Scoshe install kit for now. It sucks but I had to wrap it up and get my wife's car back in the garage. I WILL be removing that junk and building my own as soon as time permits.
