speaker mounting/mp products

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used MP Products kick panels and rear panels to mount speakers?  I'm trying to figure out where I can mount speakers and if there are any custom ideas that you guys have. I have a fold down so I may use the MTF trap door for subs.

Thanks in advance.........Rich

I have mine in the front kick panels where the air vents are.  As I have A/C, I don't need the air vents. If you have a '69, with no A/C, you probably need the vents.  You can look at my old posts on the "1970 Convertible" thread for the info.  I also have dual speakers in the dash pad.

I used RetroSound RPOD4 Surface-mount pods for 4" or 4"x6" speakers. I place them as low and forward as I could, especially on the driverside to clear the parking brake pedal. I also brought my whole parking brake pedal mechanism out another 1/2" from the kick panel. The P.O. cut speaker holes in the interior quarter panels, so i was stuck with those holes or replace the panels. I found flush mounting speaker grills panted them to match  thw panels. I mount a pair of kickers in an aftermarket rear panel. Made brcket from 2"  box steel to mount the amp in the trunk drop area behi d the spare tire.20211116_193329.thumb.jpg.26a8f9a0235d124cea7d808bba8e89d3.jpg

No speaker grills and no window cranks makes for a nice clean door panel.

How did you do the ones on the sides of the seat.  That fiberglass is not very thick.

Rich, beautiful!   

I put 2 speakers in my convertible rear seat panels.  One in the old ashtray spot, and one down low by the seat.   Can't find the finished pic of my seat panel speakers, attached a couple work in progress pics.  

Modified the fresh air vent, sealed it and wrapped in with DynaMat.  I also moved my parking brake out about 1/2" a spacer. That was pretty easy.

Have a DIN 1 Boss Head unit that is mounted in the original dash location, a Rockford Fosgate 600 watt amp, and subwoofer to complete the system.
