Is anyone here using aftermarket front kickpanel speakers such as sold thru NPD? If so, maybe you can offer some words if wisdom. I have found that the speakers must be a really shallow mount (like 1 1/2 inches deep) to be able to put the kickpanels back on on my 66 convertible. Anyone with any suggestions as to where they got speakers to fit other than the Pioneer 6 1/2's that are sold by NPD and a bunch of others would be greatly appreciated, Thanks....

Most venders will offer the panels with speakers already installed, usually have two choices of output. I have them in my wifes 66 convt. If you happen to have the Vintage Air AC you will have to buy different side vents, the ones that come with the kit will not work with the kick panel speakers.

I have a pair in a 65 cv. Don't remember who I got them from but the speaker that came with them were crapola. Best bet is to buy the blank panels and go to Best Buy or whatever and get your own. Nice thing about 67/8, there is room to cut out metal and make flush speaker mounts ala Cougar.

I got mine from Harris Mustang and they have been in my 64 9/10 conv for about 2+ YEARS. I also put them in my 69 conv at the same time and have had no problems ar all. Kathy Harris suggested the lesser priced ones, as she felt they would do as good a job as the expensive ones, and I have no complaints.

I got the empty panels and spent about $23 on the cheapest 6" speakers BestBuy had. I think they are Pioneer. They fit with no problem. They aren't going to pump window rattling mega-bass, but they are a huge improvement over stock without butchering the car. I like to keep everything easily changed back to original. When you choose your speakers, just open the box and check the depth before shelling out the cash. Charlie
