Could people please post what they have done for aftermarket speakers in the front, I am keen to keep original grills but can't find a speaker to suit. I had some pioneer 4 inch in my last volvo that were ok, but splits would be ideal.
I've put some Alpine 4" speakers (not splits) in the stock front door mounts in my 245. It needs some 6x9 in the rear doors though.
did they fit behind the standard grill?
No, the tweeter sits a bit too high to fit the grill back over it. I did want to make the grill into a bowl shape to fit over it but I haven't got around to it yet.
wow nice work ! would the grill not fit over the alpine tweeter?
I put Clarion 4" under the stock grille. If you're interested I can look up exactly which model. They are 2-way
yes please :)
The grille wouldn't fit over the Alpine tweeter, but it didn't really bother me.
