The issue I'm having is that the heater control bracket, where the top cable mounts, is hitting the left speaker magnet. I don't see a solution other than cutting the heater control bracket, which I don't want to do. Has anyone ran into this before?
I am going with 3.5" and it is still very tight but I think they will fit. My adapter plate has the speakers a little closer together. Would spacing them farther away from the top of the dash help? There is a bit more room between the magnet and the speaker.
Ran into same issue on my 1970 Sport Satellite AC car (the control is even more into the speaker area) . . . did not put front speakers in, just the 6x9s in the package tray . . . and a bazooka tube subwoofer in the trunk
