Thanks for your advice--that's just what I needed to know. I suspected that the wall wasn't just there for no reason! Since the fit is so close, I'm pretty sure I can make up a shim that will work.
And from now on I'll take Crutchfield seriously when they say it won't fit!
I've got an '89 syncro westy, 103K miles. A few years ago I replaced the stock cassette radio and speakers w/ a 40 watt/channel Pioneer CD player and speakers I got from Crutchfield. They are much better than the original but still the sound is a beat weak and thin. I don't remember the exact speakers I got but they are co-axials and fit into the original speaker holes, both front and back.
My question is.....to get louder, better quality sound, especially while driving, do I add an amplifier or a sub-woofer. Or both?
Thanks to anyone who can offer some advice. There are not a lot of us westyphiles out here in Montana.
I am installing anew radio in my 87 westy and understand the speakers are interconnected for the grounds.What do i do with the ground wires from the radio if I don't want to rewire the entire bus
