Probably. might have to space them out a bit but there is a ton of room in that area.
I just installed a pair of Dynaudio MW170 7" speakers up front. It was a good bit of work, but I got them to fit nicely.autumnwood said:Can the stock speaker locations upfront take 7"(176mm) or 7.2"(182mm) midbass woofers? As I am looking to put either SEAS W18NX or Scanspeak 18W/4531G into those locations.
Thanks! Right now, going to pair them with a pair of Boston Neo 5t tweets as I currently have just an 11-band in-dash Alpine EQ.autumnwood said:Thanks guys!
Nice job, rscotta831!!! What are you going to pair those MW170 with?
Well - For what its worth, and the cost of the option, its a hell of alot better than the standard system. Much better separation. Still doesn't hold a candle to a proper setup of quality aftermarket gear.49ferrell said:Definition for JBL: Junk But Loud
By painting, do you mean regular spray paint? If so, why would that help?SUVbuff73 said:Ever heard of painting the metal underneath the spacers?
Their "pitch" diameter shows the diameter of one edge of the surround to the opposite side. That's not the mounting diameter.autumnwood said:rscotta831,
Do you think the stock speaker locations can put in these speakers? :
I persume the mounting hole diameter of 6.77"(172mm) is the same as pitch diameter on the Scanspeak dimension picture.
I'm, right now, in the process of running wire through those wire connectors. Holy crap what a PITA!! Wish you woulda explained how to do this. Going back out to tackle it. Thanks Toyota for making my day MUCH longer! :evil:snowdreams1080 said:Got the rear speakers swapped. what a PITA.

Actually wasn't bad. Took a 1/4" drill bit & drilled through the upper portion of the connector where the small tabs were. Wallowed my bit around to make a little more room for the wire to go through. The connector remained connected after drilling, so that access point worked excellent.rscotta831 said:I'm, right now, in the process of running wire through those wire connectors.

Ya, I just drilled that exact area with a 1/4" drill bit. No way the connector was going to fall out after drilling it, so it worked good.snowdreams1080 said:there is actually room where the unit clips in. the relief for the quick clip has a small hole under it. I took a fancy metal close hanger and worked it through tapped my wire to it and pulled it back out. took a few times and experimenting to make the tape hold but got it through. most headache of the job by far.
I see what you're saying. But I don't believe the speaker hole will see any moisture. That's what relief holes in the doors are for...to relieve moisture inside the doors. If the moisture built up due to no relief holes, the moisture would damage the speakers...it would make no sense to ruin nice speakers by putting them into doors. Even if the sheet metal does corrode, it would just corrode where I cut it, not any further up. And the MDF rings are mounted with thick #14 screws. I don't think the speakers are going to fall out of my doors...at least not in my lifetime.SUVbuff73 said:I was just simply trying to point out, that by painting the sheetmetal you'll save it from corrosion.
Unless you did that, I could not tell from the picture.
You do not want your speakers fall of 2 years down the road right?
Whenever you cut something, it should be painted.
