27/05/2005 15:58:21   jonny   I am looking for ideas on where to mount some front speakers, I am not going to cut the door panels, has anyone ever tried mountngin them into the little buckets?,

any ideas appreciated.

27/05/2005 17:00:29   Alistair   I used to prefer those naff wedge speakers that boy racers bolted to their Nova parcel shelves, chucked under the front seats. If I was feeling like doing the job properly I'd even screw them to the floor (!)

Could try em were Al says or maybe under the dash.

02/06/2005 16:35:12   71sonett   I used to have the following setup in my 96:

Front: 2 x 25mm tweeters + 1 x 25mm center speaker all surface mount (easy for installation and removal).
Rear: 2 x 10" MTX subwoofers, 2 x 5" two-way Clarion speakers. The system was powered by a clarion 4 x 50 watts Clarion amplifier and the subs had their very own 2 x 300 watts rms MTX amplifier.

Except for the 3 small tweeters there was nothing you could see of the system. The volume it produced was just epic, alltough sound staging was poor (almost no mid-tones in the front and to much mid and high tones in the back of the car).  
02/06/2005 23:31:40   Tom   andrew would u like a radio to go with your car? i have one i could sell to you. It is a proper saab one and maybe the sort you are looking for. Can take a pic and email it to you if ur interested
