Recently installed infinity Kappa 6.1 component speakers in the rear factory locations of my 99 Tacoma ext. cab truck. The quality of these fine speakers is squelched by the factory appointed locations. I would like to mount the speakers overhead at the rear of the cab. (Headliner) I've built boxes for the 6.5's but am looking for mounting suggestions. ie. bracket fabrication and where if at all, I can fasten to the roof of the cab w/out penetrating the exterior roof panel. Does anyone know what is above the headliner on these trucks?
Thanks for the feedback, Enolagaia. I suspected there was little or nothing above the headliner. The dilemna with the rear of the cab is the same as the roof. There is nothing there except window and single wall metal.
Your help and the illustration are appreciated, Marc. I think I've devised a way to mount them. Based upon the criteria provided by the tech dept. at Infinity, optimum sonic performance requires .35 - .4 cubic ft. per speaker. When I finished fabrication and installed the Kappa's these boxes weigh over 8lbs. each. The weight and size greatly limit my options of installation. After considering the layout of the Tacoma cab and disassembling the seat and trim in the extended cab area I've designed and am fabricating a metal rail system that I think will work well. If anyone reading this thread is interested in knowing more, I'd be happy to provide details. Thanks again to all who responded to my request for suggestions. Teamwork!
