confused 6x9 Install

Just bought a set of Kenwood 6x9 300w 3 ways and now i am left with the part of installing them?

Whats the best way to do it? New shelf? Bricks? I don't really want to replace the shelf, but i was thinking of making bricks out of MDF so they sound better.. i dont know?

Any ideas would be good...

Regards,
Robert

Ya should have saved ya money and bought round speakers. Easier to fit, neater, cheaper and 6x9's are not required.. If ya still have the receipt take them back......

That's my opinion.

try boxes and screw then down to the shelf and cut the bottom out of the box that way when mounting them over the holes the bass go through the boot sounds great

Mounting them underneath would defeat the purpose of having 6x9's in the first place, the area will be reduced and the vibrations increased..

i have my 6 x 9's mounted under the parcel shelf but i only fittewd mine there and in this way because i had them from my ute, they worked well i didnt have the money to go and spend on a set of splits...and why should i when ive got some perfectly good 6 x 9's sitting there doing nothing.....but i do plan on replacing them with splits oneday - which is why i havent cut the hole to the 6 x 9 shape


what i will warn you about though if you do go this way keep a small shifter or open ender in the car b coz you will be constantly tightening up the bolts holding them on

Re: 6x9 Install

If your ultimate plan is to have sub/subs, then 6x9's are pretty useless. If that's the case, then I'd get a set if 6 inches and put them in for now, as cutting the parcel shelf is illegal. If you can't take them back, then your best to get spaces (bricks) under the parcel shelfs carpet so it all looks stock. But if you don't car about the roadworthyness, then just cut the shelf. I can't talk, I did the same thing
