I am not going to pound anything Do you have any pictures or a measurement of the depth? I have not pulled my console apart yet. When I had emailed Tayman he said small speakers would fit but I am sure there are many different types.

I use Kenwood KFC-1094PS 4-Inch 3-Way Speakers which have a shallow Mounting Depth of 1-11/16 in. I hope these will work.

Gary Tayman said "One consideration for this car is speakers. The original speaker is mounted in the console. The only replacement speaker option is 2 small speakers mounted together Ė a DVC is too deep and will not fit. A nice alternative, if you donít have power seats, is to mount Undercover Stealth Speakers under the front seats. They sound very nice and are invisible."

Sorry for the poor picture but hopefully it gives you some idea of what they had to do...and I just had to include a picture of my little friend that was resting nearby.

Can't decide whether to nickname my car "Speedy" or "Slowpoke".

Default Center Console speakers

My center console is sitting on the bed in the spare bedroom and the car is still in the paint shop. (4 1/2 months now) Anyhow, I checked the total depth of the original Ford speaker and it was 2 1/4" from mounting surface to bottom of magnet. Sounds like your speakers should be fine.

I think a PO had some switches or something in the holes. I put in hole plugs, but forgot to paint them with the vinyl paint. I'll do that next time I paint. Like you, I have no idea what they were for.
I plan on putting a couple switches in the front ash tray compartment. (Elect. fuel pump, power ant, map light and elect. door lock switch) We'll see how it works out.

a little off the subject . . . what vinyl paint did you use? It looks like an excellent match both in terms of color and also having the original wrinkle sort of finish.

I had some Dupont custom mixed vinyl paint that I had for years. Since I bought new seat covers and door panels, I wasn't happy with the color so I went to an auto paint store to custom mix some SEM vinyl paint. When I found it was about $120/qt., I asked the guy if he could tint my existing paint and match the new vinyl. He did and I was very pleased with the color match. The texture is due to spraying the existing vinyl coverings. I did notice that SEM has an aerosol vinyl paint that is very close to the red used in our Birds. I used the vinyl paint on the panel above the rear seat, all the front seat panels, armrests, center console, and ashtrays and side panels below the windshield. It appears to be very durable and hopefully won't wear off. The armrests/door pulls are biggest concern. I put like 3 coats on them plus a semi gloss vinyl clear coat. Time will tell.
