hi guys.
i was wondering if i could put 6x9s in the back of the car without modifying the shelf to accomodate them there or would i have to get a bracket.


cheers
anthony.

What car mate?
But they wont fit in almost all Falcons, if not all of them.
The best and easiest way would be to get somne good 6 inch speakers.

they will probably be going in to a EL.
i have changed the back 6's to a new set of pioneer 6's.
im still thinking of what to do with it at the moment(sound system wise), ive got a pioneer head unit that im going to install most probably tomorow after school.


cheers
anthony.

Good stuff, the Pioneer gear, in my experience has always been reliable and a decent product for the money.
Your sounds system would really depend on what your after, maybe a 12" sub or some new front speakers, etc...

well as for the head unit instilation i took off the cover and one of the torx bolts had been rounded and now i cant change decks :evil: any one have any idea on how to take the bolt off?

as for what im going to do in the next few months, im going to move the 6's from the back into the front and make some 6x9 brackets for the back and hopefully have the magnet poking out the current 6 inch hole, then in the back im most probably going to run a 5 way amp with 2 12 inch subs or somthing roughly that.


cheers
anthony

If you can't get some pliers onto the head of that torx bolt, then you may need to drill it out.
Just my opinion, would be if you are planning to get 2 12" subs, you don't really need 6x9's. They are usually good if you aren't going to get any subs for bass, as they will produce a little more bass than 6" speakers.
I'd probably keep the 6" speakers you already have in the parcel shelf, and get some 6" splits for the front, or just 6" speakers.
Having the 6" speakers in the parcel shelf, will make the install look neater, than raising some 6x9's to fit.
You wouldn't need a 5 channel amp to run 2 12" subs, either a 2 or 4 channel amp would be fine. Just remember that if you get a good amp for the subs, and good subs, there will probably be too much bass for the treble the speakers can produce.

If you have a Multimeter, it should be fairly easy.
If you need hand figuring out whats what, let me know, and i'll explain how to figure it all out with a multimeter, etc

yeh i told him that but it doesnt really bother me for the time being as i plan to upgrade to a better set of pioneers in the near future this stuff is just going to fill that void untill then.

and another question would 6 inch speakers fit into the front doors in place of the old ones ad the cones have cracked.




cheers
anthony
