Front mounts

Post by Klippie » Tue Sep 29, 2009 3:18 pm

hey all.

my bug has 2 pioneer 6x9's in the back and a piece-o-shit radio,

im looking to go for something like: Sony Xplode frontloader
Sony Xplode 6x9's in the back
a amp
a sub in the backseat wall at the bottom.
and then i want to put some speakers in the front. don't know what and where?

any idea's on where to mount these. and what speakers to use?

You can use, any size speakers you want in a kick panel mount. check out faraads thread in the ice section its been covered there, you will have to cut the dash in order to fit the sony hu in the exsisting spot.

:bn: photos but here is my Xplode front loader ready to go in, under the dash in the middle, semi hidden from view when peering into the car. silver buttons are for central locking. Have a nice rose wood panel hiding the gaping hole in the dash for the original radio hole. I got 16cm Xplode speakers for the passenger and drivers door. had to get this size to hide the hack job the previous person did. if you made a similar panel to mine but one piece like mine was previously then your sub could go on that provided you support it properly. 6x9's next to it....

i curently have a frontloader installed in the centre of the dashboard. went through that thread. im not to keen on cutting into the bodywork at all. would be great to mount them in the doors. i have some idea's but that means redoing the hole doorpannel. thought about maby building a wooden housing of some sort and mount it to the bottom of the dash.

With kick panels you dont have to cut anything. just get a panel made from fibreglass and wood. check out jmvws thread in my ride. he has awesome ones no cutting done. and great staging.

Got the radio, got the 6x9's, and wired up the extra 6x9's under the seat, just for fun.

Going to save up for sub, amp, and jmvw's setup lol
