Great topic, glad we have some expert help. I am having problems w/where to install speakers. The equipment I am planing to purchase from Etronics is:
1 Alpine head unit.
2. 5 1/4" infinity speakers(reference series)
3. 5" x 7" infinity rear speakers
The car is a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow that has a new leather interior(I do not want to put a hole in the door & the kick panel does not have room.

I listen to a soft music played not too loud.

Will the sound be acceptable if I mount the front speakers under the dash & the rear on the rear package tray? Also if you have recommendations on the equipment let me know...Don

Don
the speakers you have are great. the under the dash will cut down on the full effect of sound mainly because it will be facing the floor and not you.
I understand not wanting to cut into the door panels. What year is your silver shadow?

The Rolls is a 1966 which was the first yr for the Shadow. It was a unitized car that I made a frame for-350/700r4/Ford 9"/12" discs....
as for the front speakers they will be pointed rearward. Would it help if I put them in a box? If so what size box ?....thanks
Ps - The RR now has 50% more HP. Can't wait to drive it.

the speakers will not need a box . If you plan on just running the speaker off the head unit.
I must have been misinformed on the shadow because my grandfather had a 1939 silver shadow or at least that is what he told me it was of course that was too many years ago for me to recall.
but with the drive train you have it in now I would like to take it a spin.
