i bought myself some 6 inch speakers for the ED the other day, only to find out after pulling the door trim off the LHF door, that the door is from an EA/EB1 (4 inch speaker) :shock:

obviously its been in a prang before we bought it and had a different door put on...

so can i just cut/grind out the speaker hole for the 6in speakre to fit? or is it a no-no?

cheers fellas

Just drill out the 4 rivets holding the box in place ,and then fit your 6" speakers in the same position.I did it to my EB1,originally4". Try to angle them towards the opposite seat headrest,with a bit of mdf,for better transmission of sound.

I also fitted extra speakers in the foot well cut-out of the door card while I was at it, so that when I get the new h/u I can wire them to the amp and have a very good front stage.
