EF Speaker dimensions

Went to hb hifi and was looking at some spilts, but i don not want to cut the doors, he told me i coiuld only fit speakers with a depth of 45mm, and that i would only be able to get spilts if i cut the door? Any one else got kicker spilts in without modding the door? Also, Can i buy a new mp3 headunit and hook the stacker up to it, if so what brand? or can a cable be made to convert it to a jvc headunit?

Re: EF Speaker dimensions

I have a set of Alpine splits in my EF. I'm not sure what the mounting depth is, but they don't foul the window, and didn't require any modification.
With the tweeters, I just stuck them up on the little bit of plastic near the power window knob (I can take a pic if you need). All that was required to fit them there was I had to drill a hole through it to feed the cable.
I'm not 100% sure about the JVC, but you should be able to hook up a stacker to it. I don't know if they make an MP3 stacker though. If you hook up a regular stacker to an MP3 head unit, you'll only get MP3 capability at the head unit. JVC might make an MP3 stacker (check their website) but I know Alpine and Pioneer do.

Re: EF Speaker dimensions

EF's can fit upto 6.5 inch drivers in the doors. Not sure on depth, but if this is a problem, some spacers can be made from MDF, but only a few mm as then the speaker would hit the door trim. Some brands make slimline splits especially made for situations such as yours. I was personally looking at a set of slimline focal polyglass splits to fit in my mates doors.

biggrin Re: EF Speaker dimensions

I ended up getting pioneer mp3 remote head unit, jbl 6.5 inch gt spilts in the front, jbl 6.5 3 ways in the rear, mtx 250 watts rms amp and pioneer 12 inch sub, with a sansiu amp powering the front splits all install for 1500, the sansiu amp and pioneer sub i already had though.

Its bloddy loud now.. had the tweeter mounted where the premium sound systems tweeter goes.

Heaps of room.
