I searched through the forum but couldn’t find this info.

Does anyone know the maximum speaker size that will fit in the front / rear with the mounting plates from the Thing Shop?

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Figured I would fill in this information after I got a chance to measure.

On my 73, the front speakers could be up to a 6-3/4 diameter. There was just about 2” Of clearance behind the mounting plate.

The rears were a little harder. The cutout behind the plate is roughly 5” tall x 10”wide. The clearance varies a little but 1-1/2” is a safe number. I’m not sure what roll bar I have but there was only a hair more than 1” of clearance between the outer surface of the mounting plate and the roll bar.

Hope this helps. Now I’m trying to find speakers that will work...
