Hi Gents ( and Ladies)

Where is the best place to fit 6' x 9" speakers in a SFA D/C Hilux?

Any Pointers welcome.

Hi,

This is what I did on my (ex)SFA... quite a bit of steel cutting... and I had to create a mounting frame because the speaker magnet was a bit too deep.

Might not be the easiest solution, but it worked very well for me. Speakers grills tend to take a beating when installed in the doors, and having the tweeters closer to ear level is ideal.

Yes danie daai is 'n lekker plat sub
Ek het 'n soortgelyke sub agter die agter seat en ek het my 9x6 se boksies kleiner gemaak om hul ook agetr die seat te pas. sal maar sien hoe dit gaan klink.

Myne het 7x10's in die voorste deure; maar die goed vat baie houe met die voete saam...

Jip stef en dan loop ek nog met nommer 12 skoene
Daarom wil ek eerder nie in die deure speakers plaas nie.

Brilliant idea Mr_B

Please tell me - does any water drip down the void behind the speaker?

There should be no water getting in there unless you have rust holes where the roof skin meets the gutter somewhere at the back. Another possibility is if you have an antenna mounted on the 'C'-pillar and the rubber seal washers are perished and cracked.

Surely a drip through the exterior vent on the C-pillar is also a possibility? Pulling off the shroud you can see the interior skin through the rectangular vent in the exterior skin.. If so I could merely flasband the vents closed:)

I've never had it coming in through there, at least not that I've ever noticed it.
