Speaker Sizes

Hey there,

Im thinking about purchasing some speakers for the front doors of my ea. Wat size are compatable with these holes in the door. If i want to go bigger in the door, is it possible.... thinking maybe 6", if i cut a bigger hole in the door... could this be done.

Re: Speaker Sizes

I think the largest size speaker you can put into the front doors of an EA without modifying it is 4"
I suppose you could cut it but it would still be a tight squeeze..
A good option is to get what I have.. they are door pods and they fit nicely into the grooves at the bottom of the door..
Not sure if someone on the forums sell them?

Re: Speaker Sizes

EA-XR6,
What suspension pack did you get?. I have an EA spack and want to lower it, but not too low as I live in the country. I want the back to be the same height as the front.
Cheers

Clive

Re: Speaker Sizes

EA's came with 4" Factory, EB/ED had 6" Factory.
Your only options for installing larger speakers for a EA is to change the doors or cut bigger holes, my doors are shit so i just simply cut out holes and made a thin MDF plate to screw the speakers into. Ive got 6.3/4" in the front

Re: Speaker Sizes

I cut holes in mine so that i could fit 6.5" in there...

I just used a jigsaw, then drilled the holes and screwed it straight in. I didn't need any spacers or anything.

Works like a charm!


Cheers,
Dave

Re: Speaker Sizes

I had to due to the speaker depth, since these are big speakers (really designed for rear parcel shelf but....)

Re: Speaker Sizes

Yer, some speakers are different than others.

Mine has a really wide magnet, rather than a deep one, which i guess made it a bit easier...

Just keep an eye on the mounting depth before you buy the speakers. I think mine are 63mm and still have some clearance before they hit the window glass.


Cheers,
Dave

Re: Speaker Sizes

Thats a very good point Thanatos, Always make sure you check the depth of the speaker before buying, i got all carried away with the RMS and the power of them and didnt think of the size.

Re: Speaker Sizes

I just used the grill that came on the door...

I doesn't have a HUGE effect on the sound. It sounds marginally better with the door trims off, but it's not really much of an issue.


Cheers,
Dave
