Door Speakers

I have searched tons of the previous threads about speakers. I would love to have a set of the door spacers (STC3312). I think $68.00 each from RN is a little high. Any other suggestions?

I have a RHD D90 w/o AC, can I put speakers under my dash using universal spacers? I know the wiper motor is there.


I really am looking for any help.

I am shooting for 5-1/4" / 6" speakers.

Thanks for the advise!

A lot of the ROW trucks have the speakers mounted under the dash in the spot you mention. Should be enough room with the spacers.

I was thinking the same, really wondering if anyone out there has done this? And how it turned out?

Having the speakers in the doors will really help enhance the bass notes.

We've got a 110 Commercial in for some light duty outfitting and one of the things we're doing is fitting a jeep soundbar overhead where the front and rear headliner panels come together. We're using rivnuts in 3 places where the standard headliner push tabs are fitted, with the bolts coming through the speaker housing. Also incorporating the interior lights that come with the bar to function with the standard Rover front interior light. We're able to fit 6 1/2" Alpines with 2" mounted depth if that helps at all.
Keeps the headroom, puts the sound nearby and with sound deadening mats over a 200tdi it might sound half way decent.
We were reluctant to cut the dash or the door panels on a very origianl 110; I'll let you know how it sounds!

some pictures of the overhead set up would be great too. I am in the same boat. I went to a high end custom shop and they suggested the kick panels. There is about 2" between the kick and the wing skin. You can make a sheet metal box with a flange that you can fit in there but it is a bit complicated. PM me if your interested in the plan I worked out.

Did you ever get any pics of this Trevor?, I'd like to see how it looks before I hack up my doors. Also, what brand did you use, there are about 1000 options.

Yeah, UK trucks have the speakers under the dash. For the LH side (or RH in your case) where the wiper motor is, there is a plastic spacer ring, about 3/4" thick.

part # AMR3840, 2.04 UKP.

Although the sound from these speakers aiming down to the footwell is prety crap.
