Those annoying backseat speakers (extended cab content)

Postby GlideOm [OP] » May 09 2013, 1:37am

:D

New member, but lemme get to the point:



Those 5.25 speakers in the backseat. I go to upgrade them with some quality woofers with larger magnets. I find that the entire spakers assembly is platic'd together and I can't seem to upgrade these speakers without destroying them in the process.


Seriously Chevy? You couldn't simply cut out a hole in and just mounted it in the door like every other normal auto maker??? :evil:


Smh...anyways...



Is there anybody out there who makes adapter plates to fit the desired size speaker in the backdoors? I can't seem to find any lurking around on ebay. I can't possibly be the first to come across this issue. I don't have the time, patience or tools to make any myself - just want to have more bass from the rear without seriously hacking anything. :|


???






P.S - Love Chevy engines, hate them for overusing plastic overkill on everything in sight (light switches, speaker adapters, interiors, etc)

Why not look into a small sub for under your rear seat? In the doors you are limited in size and mounting depth. Plus you will get more bass out of a small sub under your seat than you will putting something in your doors.

Crutchfield.com is your best friend when it comes to adapters. IIRC they have something for those back doors.

This member just used the stock speakers in the rear doors for his brackets.

Use the factory speakers to fabricate your own speaker baffles out of wood. Once you have the plate cut to size cut a hole for the speaker and mount it to your door. Worked like a charm for me and my truck. Here's the baffle and speaker for one of my front doors...

I used an XTC foam baffle and cut it in half to make drip guards.
