modifying trunk spring for big magnet 6x9

okay, i have kappa 6x9 that i want to install in the trunk to replace the factory 6x9 ... thing is the magnets are too big and the bar that helps openning the trunk is in the way, and scrapes on the magnet of the speaker ... i have a coupe by the way ... now I heard it was possible to modify the bar that acts like a spring to help the trunk in order to be able to fit the speakers ....

has anyone done this ... or know it can be done ... even better ... have pictures of it ... it would be greatly appreciated .... thanks !!!

I know it's not a wise Idea to remove it as the trunk is quite heavy ... and anyways it is something i dont want to do ...

How much room do you need? What I did was where the speakers screw in on top i made a template out of 1/4 masonite andcut a hole for the speaker. That raised it 1/4" and it was enough to clear without any problems.

Try making a half inch plate and see if it works. It might clear the back dash but only one way to find out i guess. Good luck

I'd do whats said, use a spacer on the front side to lift the speaker up. Metra makes several different thickness spacers. I have a 1/2" when I had 6"x9"s back there, worked great.

Did your stock grill still fit with the spacers? Do your 6x9s have tweeters that protrude?

Thanks,

Eddie
