Kick Panel Speaker Install
I wanted to put some 4" alpines in my kick panels. I was going to raise the kickpanel (with fiberglass) and mount the speakers out without having to cut the metal. I wanted to do this is because in my truck a 1970 C10 there are air vents that are at the top of the kick panel right below the dash. Drives side is operated with a handle the passenger is directly linked to my ac. I was worried with that being open there was a possibility of getting the speakers wet. I would be so pissed if a 115 set of speakers was ruined stupidly.
So my question is what all options do i have? DOor panels are out of the question. THe raised will not work because my parking brake lever is about 3 1/2 inches from the kickpanel. The mounting depth is 4" i also figured another 1 1/2 inches give or take for the grill, fiberglass, and upholstery. Does anyone have a creative suggestion or alternative mounting place. I am putting 6x9's in the rear cab corners just below the level of the back glass. I would like a nice stero sound, not two-way. Thanks for any help in advance!!
