where to mount speakers in ea81 hatchback
Posted 30 May 2011 - 09:30 PM
I have seen ea81 front speakers mounted in three places:
1. a single 6" long oval speaker mounted on the face of the dash above the glovebox
2. a single 4" long oval speaker mounted on the face of the dash next to the driver side door
3. a pair of 6" round speakers mounted low in the doors (would require cutting my doors)
The only place I have seen rear speakers mounted is above the rear wheel wells. To mount 6 inch speakers here would require removing the evaporation tank thing on the passenger side rear wheel well.
I would like to see where you guys have mounted speakers in an ea81 era hatch or other vehicle.
I am thinking of using the two behind the dash locations in the front, probably 4" speakers and the wheel wells in the back with 6" speakers.
What say you?

I don't remember there being any significant differences between the sides. I'm almost positive the center holes will allow for 5 1/4s with drilling of new mounting holes. I remember the 4's I used were wallowing in the big hole, but I didn't measure it (sorry.)
If you start at the beginning of that same thread, it shows some pretty detailed pictures of a dash mounted driver's side speaker (thanks to GD.) The passenger side is pretty straight forward.
Hope that helps.
