Loud speakers in a 110

All,

My 110 came with 2 front loud speakers, and they are really not at the best
place for nice sound (yes, I know, there is not much point because of the
general noise in the "car", but never mind ;-).

Has anybody fitted additional ones in the back? If yes, where?

TIA,

Fred

I fitted a pair in the headlining of my County just in front of the roof
windows - they are closer to your ears and hence work better over the
noise. The headlining is strong enough to support the speakers and there is
enough clearance behind it for the magnets.

I fitted some to the panel above the rear quarter windows, either side of
the rear door, on the CSW. worked well.

The land rovers I've fitted for field work had a shelf just behind the
front seats at roof-joint level, with 2 pairs of speakers, each pair
right by the ears of the driver/navigator. very effective., stereo was
mounted in between on the shelf along with some radio gear and a
custom switch box for controlling which speakers did what and how
loud.
not enough room in a station wagon though, we used hard tops.


Regards.
Mark.

A bit too close to my hears for my taste. ;-)

Thanks anyway.

I had in mind indeed. How did you run the wires? How do you take the
lining there out?

I noticed a 90 recently with a pair in the lamp cluster/wiring protection
'corners' at the back of the benches, looks quite sensible. On my 110,
there's not much else there; plenty of room for a speaker magnet/cone. As
for the wires, from stereo to 1st speaker along the cabin - simpler - or
along the chassis; either way crossing sides underneath with the lamp wiring
is possibly best.

Regards

Mark

I think the lining was on those irritating plastic things that break if
you're not careful. You might need to remove the door seal or something as
well, can't remember. I think I got persuaded the wiring into a bit of
interior trim that runs along above the side windows, and then ran it down
the windscreen pillars inside the trim there, round the corner into the bit
under the dash.
