psuedo restoration going on with my 95 Disco. It needed new speakers anyway and I ditched the rear door woofers for extra space so I'm doing this to extend the range of the remaining speakers. going to 5 1/4" is too easy and not enough of a chainge IMO, so I went this route

The centerline needs to be shifted 5/16 over to fit the trim piece.
flattened out the stock bracket, recreated it in cad.
made brackets to use existing mounting holes and hold the 6.5" driver.

Great idea. Those speakers that came in the trucks are pretty shitty. Half of them don’t work anymore and the owner doesn’t know it. Most of those subwoofers are completely rotted behind that plastic grill.
