hi guys, just wondering how i will go about putting a set of 6" splits into the front doors of my AU TE50. i know that the standard speakers are 5x7's and therefore a 6" speaker wont fit into the hole. so has anyone here done it before? and can tell me what is involved? i dont really want to cut any metal out of the door as it is illegal (unroadworthy). therefore i will have to make a mount of some sort. please help me. thanx.

i got 6" 3-ways all round and all i did was drill new holes into the metal and mounted the 6" in the 5x7 holes, they fit fine if u drill ur own holes and u just get a small gap on each side of the speakers, sounds fine and havent had a problem with them...

is there much room for a spacer and speaker when mounted so the door trim will go back on properly? whats the room like behind the door trim where the speaker goes?

I have a pic floating around somewhere of my 6" Pioneer splits with tweeter mounted on a spacer behind the factory door trim grille ... all hidden.

spacers make you feel good knowing you have gone to all that trouble for nothing :D... 2cm gaps on each side of the speaker makes no difference...

I mounted a the MDF board in there so I could mounted the speaker and tweeter next to each other ... that's all really ... it's there for mounting purposes.

I know it's not sealed completely in the door ... and that would not be an easy task either.

hey i just replaced the factory tweeters with jaycar super tweeters and mounted them on the outside of the A pillar and the sound difference is massive, so much clearer and well worth $45. Not much relavance to this thread but just thought i let you's know. thanks.

Joesau - how did you wire the super tweeters up? just disconnect the factory and wire these ones in?

yeah i bought crossovers as well and just wired them up to the factory wiring. Checkout the latest Street fords magazine, in the tech section i think its in there, they did this on a Ba premo sound so i thought Au Ba similar premo sound systems so i just followed there steps, believe me where the tweeter is in the A pillar absoloute waste of time it being there. mount it on the outside, no joke i get an earache after a while if im cranking it.
