Just a little bit of bending and cutting. Maybe a hammer to flatten out some of the ridge that needs to be cut out. Nothing to worry about exept the mounting depth, some 6x9"s magnets are extremely oversized.
so ah....how do you do it? I just exchanged my blown alpine type r 5x7's for alpine type r 6x9's (that's what they had in stock) and I have no idea how to make them fit. Someone walk me through this please!!!
easiest way is to get some 1/2 " mdf and build yourself a new baffle that willl mount a 6x9....you might even have to use a 3/4" piece of board depending on the magnet..and then mount that to the car door over the existing speaker hole..
are these going in the rear locations? gawd i hope so...hehehe
if they are going up front be very sure to have the amp set correctly...twisting and crackling 6x9's is the worst sound in the world..much better off with components up front..
i had all type r's all around, but i blew the rear two, so the 6x9's are going in the rears. so if i just mount them to some 1/4" particle board and screw that into the existing holes, will that be alright? i hope so...i love my alpines
otherwise, if the depths still don't fit, should i exchange them for some 6x8's? let me know what you think. thanks!
The very first thing i ever cut with my dremel was the cougar to install my 6x9s. Its not very hard, and since it all hiden away its a good place to start, that way if you mess up it can't be seen. Just use the template that comes with the speakers for the cut out, or make your own template. Just remember you can always cut away more if needed, but its very hard to put back. Good Luck.
