Unhappy Stereo speakers in my truck.

I am going to install stereo speakers in my 49 Chevy truck. Does it hurt if the magnet is toughing the metal cab on the back of the truck?

I can't tell you for sure, but I've 'stuck' a few sets of speakers in cars before that never had any problems.

the only problem i can think of is small metal objects may stick to your truck a little better. Other than that it shouldn't hurt... Just make sure the terminals aren't touching the metal of the truck.

Are you considering a subwoofer as part of your stereo? If you are, where are you going to mount it? I have a slightly newer truck and I'm thinking of upgrading the old set up too.

You sure you weren't a victim of mine?

We've taken the shopping carts at Wally world you know, the ones with the safety belts for the brats? Anyway, we've taken them and lined them up around friends's cars and latched all the belts to each other making a pretty good 'security fence' around thier cars.

Hey, Mac

Did you see what I did with mine?
Click Here

I tried 4 speakers in every location imaginable, but a truck-cab is too small for 4 ... I went with two, built boxes for 'em, and the sound is killer!

Right now, they're mounted on my kick panels -- I'm gonna cut the kick panels out and recess the boxes in, flush. I think it's a better location than the doors -- especially sound-wise.

Rattles. If it is going to be THAT close I would put a piece of felt paper (roofing underlayment) between the magnet and the metal. This will be waterproof and cushion any vibration. Of course what do I know I have a dollar bill shoved between mine to stop the rattle. Been there for 8 years and I'll never be broke as long as it's there. LOL!!!
