    Club Download Front Speaker Mounts, Template

    Hopefully this could be made a sticky.

    Download these files, the first PDF is a fullsize template, to be printed at A3 size, then the same but at reduced scale so you can read all the dimensions, and finally I have an AutoCAD drawing for those who can, but it won't upload, so PM me if you want that e-mailing to you.


    You can make the template in any material, I used 6mm MDF. You then need to cut out MDF rings to mount on top to actually receive the speakers. With my thin MDF plate, I cut 18mm thick MDF rings, which were glued and screwed to the plates. This template can be modified according to whatever speakers you wish to fit, but the outer diameter only has a little "movement" before it will foul the top of the door card.

    So first cut out all the parts.


    Then chop the tops of the backing plate to allow clearance for top of the door.


    Glue your mounting ring onto the plate, secure with four screws thru the back.



    Screw to the original three fixing points, little green plastic things


    Replace the door card and mount your speaker and cover ring thus compressing door card to MDF bracket

    Whenever I get here there is a huge gap at the top between ring and door card, and a tiny little gap at the bottom. Because the lower of the 3 mounting points is about 15mm further 'out' than the others, so I've got a block in there to make it fit.
    So now I'm trying to make a wedge shaped MDF ring that's 15mm thick at the top and 0mm at the bottom!!

    Thanks Rob for the file and the guide

    I'm just wondering if it would be possible to modify the shape of the bracket so that it covered the hole up in the door (see red line on photo.) I want to seal the door enclosure as Chiefgroover's guide, or would this cause an obstruction to the door card?

    cheers

    Mine fits it better, but as I said it's causing problems with my ring (oo err).

    Project's on hold at the moment as I don't have the car.

    Does anyone else find that whilst driving you can hear the passenger side speakers better than the closer drivers side? I tend to have my balance over to the right to balance this out.

    I think it is because the speakers are angled slightly downwards eg. drivers side points to your knee. I'm just wondering if angling the speakers upwards and slightly rearward facing would improve the sound quality??

    I've found that Nic, also, the rear passenger side one seems to be closer to my ear than the one in the passenger door.

    There is the boxing to the window switches at that point, but it should be OK, you'll have to try it and see. The real point of the template was to locate the ring in relation to the three fixing screws.
    So anyone can mod it as they see fit.

    Quick question

    I can get hold of pre-cut MDFspeaker rings that are the following sizes (both 18mm thick)

    Outer Diameter 180 Inner Diameter 144 or

    Outer Diameter 210 Inner Diameter 146

    Would either of these be the correct fit?

    Both come in at 6.99 a pair

    Cheers

    Paul

    I'm sure they'll fit, but as above, it's up to each person to modify the template as they see fit. The key elements are the centre of the ring and the three screw holes.
