Max depth for dash speakers?


Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm looking to replace the dash-top speakers and have been told that 2" is the max depth. Sorry to be picky, but are we talking exactly 2"? The reason I ask is the speakers I have in mind say" Installation depth : 60 mm ( 2")" - which is actually over 2" in my book! I don't want to buy them and then find out they're too tall,

So I'd really appreciate it if you can let me know what speakers you've used (and I'll research the depths) and any experiences with speakers that haven't fitted?

Cheers

The Kicker 6.5 mid subs would be great for low end. They are shallow and provide decent low frequency response. Why would they not fit in the tuned factory door enclosures. The Kickers only need 1.4-.4 cubic ft so couldn't you seal the enclosure and put filler behind the speaker to help the sound. I just need to know if anyone has tried this or do you have to build a baffle. Please gie reasons why it will or won't work and thanks many times over in advance.

I'm new here as I just got a 1999 Boxster and I want to improve the sound. I love the car and this is my 4th Porsche. I'm in San Diego.

I have just installed the MB Quart DKH110 speakers in the dash and they only just fit..at the limit I would suggest. Their installation depth (i.e distance between bottom of magnet and fixing screw location is 2.17" which is ca. 55 mm. On that basis, I would suggest that a speaker with 60 mm depth will not fit !

I recently installed a pair of Focal 100 CVX coaxials that are 59mm deep and they didn't quite fit. They're still sitting loose because I'm afraid the grills will snap if I try to screw them down tight. Haven't figured out yet how to deal with this. I agree, go no deeper than 55mm.

On the right side, I had to grind down a bolt by about i/8th of an inch.

FYI: MY entire audio system is for sale, If anyone is interested, or spread the word, I unfortunately totalled my car (see 100k+ thread) but kept the audio and willing to sell this complete turn key system very reasonably, want to see it go to a good home.
