    4" front speaker mod (with pics)

    So I've had blown oem speakers in the front for forever and finally broke down to diy a permanent solution together. I'll update this with pics tonight or tomorrow and give a step by step

    Alright, sorry about the huge wait. sometimes life happens....

    So when mocking up the speakers I'm sure most of you know that these plastic bezels suck.




    What I used.

    I had some aluminum trim from a shed I built last year at the farm. This material is sturdy but bends and conforms easily for application



    Cutting a flat peice of aluminum I mocked up my mounts. There was a ton of trim work and measuring to get them right.








    Then I mocked up the lower mount while using the oem mount location.








    I used a bead of silicone to seal the mounts and eliminate vibration.





    I then fit the speaker and mounted. After mounting I covered the edges with a bead of silicone as well. Pretty much the same method used on the other side.






    Here's how they look finished and in place. Best part is you dont have to drill into your dash for this mod to work.
