Front speakers in MK2 Escort
Posted 25 April 2012 - 06:01 PM
I am wanting to put some front speakers into my Escort. I have added a head unit, and rear 6x9s in a custom speaker box which sits in the parcel tray, but it sounds a little weird without any front speakers. The door cards are in great condition, so cutting into them is not really an option. I don't really want to put them into the air con vents either.
What are my other options for installing speakers in the front? Any pictures of a similar setup would be great.

Kick panels, sides of center console or under the dash could work?
Kick panels could work, would there be any forseeable issues with speakers getting damaged from people getting on/out of the car?
By sides of centre console you mean where I have circled in the picture? I had never really though about there, but could work. How would it sound with the speakers in there? I assume around 4" would be the best fit.
How would I mount under the dash? I could put it in the tray thing on the drivers side, but the glovebox is in the way on the passenger side.

Between this polytech shit and the thing with the vag, I'm turning into such an antisocial mofo.
Please excuse my dumb questions. This is the first car I have worked on.

Thats not a vent, thats the factory speaker hole lol
I got to small 4 inch and joined them together and managed to get them up in under the vent in the center of the dash was a shit job to do but a cable tie and two screws it worked fine and you wouldnt even know they where there
