Hello!

As many of you are talking about speakers in W123 I thought that I should come with a suggestion. I´ve cut off the lower part of the doorpanels and replaced them with a thin MDF-board which intergrates a box in the front part. If you are careful with space it will fit a 6,5" base (in my case a 2 way Cantonsystem with separated filter placed on the firewall) and tweeters on top of the box. A hole in the bottomplate in to the door for "open air". The panel is covered with PVC formed with a hot-air gun and fastened with contact glue. When cutting panel remember to save 1/2" of the original PVC to fold over the new edge and glue it on the backside. It,s my opinion that for the best sound only the low register base should be placed in the back of the car. With two 6x9" in the back you won´t even need stereo as the channels are mixed up when they reach the driver

Nice!

That's a nice modification! And a good idea. I always wished there was something bigger in the front than the 4 inch speakers in the dash!

6x9s

how do you install 6x9 speakers at the back? do you need to cut some of the fabric? do you also need to enlarge the "hole" in the sheet metal?

i tried to fit them however i thought they were too big??

before you start "Enlarging the hole" take a very good look below the rear shelf - that mass of metal contains your fuel tank :) - it sits vertically behind the rear seat and is all too easy to drill into.

rear speakers in an estate/wagen

i'VE GOT A PAIR OF 4" SPEAKERS AND AM TRYING TO WORK OUT HOW TO INSTALL THEM IN THE REAR. i'VE TAKEN DOWN THE TRIM PIECE THAT SITS UP HIGH AND CAN SEE 3 HOLES THAT LOOK LIKE THEY SHOULD BE USEFUL. (caps off!!) I'm thinking of just using one screw to locate - can the speaker magnet touch the vehicle body??
