Red face Stereo speaker installation?

Can anyone give me advice on where most of you are installing your front speakers for your stereos in your 34s. I have got the back speakers installed ok but am not sure where to put the front speakers. This is an Outlaw fiberglass 34 Ford body. I bought the car from someone and am hesitant to start tearing out the kick panels and end up finding out there is no room behind them.

We put the majority of the front speakers in 32-34 coupes in the kick panel. A good 3 1/2" speaker works really well with the space you have up there. If your car has a lower dash built in it, they could also be mounted underneath the lower dash, pointing down.

In these these two cars pictured in the links, you can see speakers located in the kick panels. The light cream colored interior is in a Outlaw 34 Ford Body if I remember correctly, so you shouldn't have a problem mounting speakers there, as long as the fuse box or something isnt mounted behind the kick panel.

I put my front speakers in my '32 into the kick panels. I used Kenwoods and they were only a couple of inches deep.

Well I finally got the kick panels off and I was able to get 6 1/2" speakers (Pioneer TS-A1667 I think they were) in them. Tight fit but they sound great! Thanks for the replies!
