Kick panels

Anyone tried to mount speakers in the air duct of the kick panels in a 69 first gen.
Not looking to replace but use the exsisting units. Would be intersted to find out what size speakers fit. I dont want to mount speakers in the rear of the car so the kick panels seem the only option

Why not? There are perfect 6x9 cutouts on the rear shelf.

Just put a new parcel tray in to replace the "cut up for speakers" unit before.
Not interested in awsome stereo, just listen to the radio on longer trips.

For serious music lovers (ie- me ), horrible. But if it's just some talkback radio on long drives, then sound dynamics is probably not I huge concern & a good solution.

Did 69s have the under-dash setup like 67/8s? Could be another easy fit... (Even though none of us are answering the oringal question )

I put in a pair of 6x9 JBLs on the rear shelf.. I don't want no blasting stereo either, but they'll sound much better than kick panel speakers purely because of their location.
I also have a pair of 6x4 JBLs in the stock kick panel location too.
(..and I have working kick panel vents! )

Can you post a photo of your kick panels showing the location of the speakers ??

These are not mine, but it's a pic I have with the factory measurements for when I'm ready to cut my kick panels..
According to the assembly manual (U79-A3 ), the speakers and grills are mounted to the kick panel. However, I have mounted my speakers directly to the body (as you should for best sound) and will only mount the grills to the kick panels.
I'd snap a pick for you, but the car is not here right now..
