Hidden 6x9's

Hey all (again),

I was just brainstorming what I could do with my old (18 months now) 6x9 pioneers from my previous car... and i was thinking of installing them *under* the parcel shelf, leaving the stock 97style pioneer 6" grills... has anyone done this install? and if so, have dramas with rattle and such??

Just throwing a *wacky* idea out there to get shot down

Cheers,

Luke

P.S - The car is an EL Futura

Re: Hidden 6x9's

lol...with splits up the front and to much big bass out the back, needed some midbase for the back, and i had 8inch subs under them...worked well...
saved raing the shelf or illegally hacking it up...

Re: Hidden 6x9's

Excellent... i have some spare mdf spacers that were in the other car (18 months of use, and never screwed them in, just chucked the magnet thru the stock 6" hole

So i'm thinking chuck those under for a nice flat surface to have the speaker against, and then just pump it thru the stock 6" holes. Im not planning on doing anything to my system sub\amp wise for some time. I am howver planning on getting a set of Pioneer TS-C1653's, Link , professionally installed at purchase decemberish.

Its all falling into place now.

Luke

Re: Hidden 6x9's

Been done before. I did it with my Infinity 6*9s but it is simply is just not the same as it would be if they were set up properly. I'm thinking I lost a good 20-30% of their potential.

Re: Hidden 6x9's

So you have speakers useing the bulk power of a 6x9 with the sound of a 6"!
Can you not fit a sub instead?
