Allright... I know many of you have seen these rings in prior posts. I wanted to post these pictures up because I have received quite a few emails requesting pictures of these mounting rings and find it easier to just post the picture here.

Here are the rings...






And also.. many want to see how the speaker will look with a new speaker installed and the factory grill removed... here is the pic






and one more pic... this is a picture of the new plate with a "modified" stock housing for comparison.






The panels are $150 plus shipping. I custom build them for the speaker you are using. I can usually have them to you in about a week!

If anyone would like to check out a few other Supra stereo shots.. hit this link

What are they made of ? Do you have a small sealed fiberglass version available ( I'm getting to lazy to do things myself now-a-days.)

The panels are made of MDF and fiberglass.

I could build an enclosure for the back of the ring but it would take a bit more money to build it.

I have found that simply sound deadening the entire door will provide better mid-bass performance for that application. If I build an enclosure for the speaker it will be rather small compared to the entire door.

But, If you desire, I will make a fiberglass enclosure behind the ring that will fit in the factory location.

It will run about $300 plus your shipping for both doors.

Thomas,
On the link you posted, the third picture from the left, first column, is a Supra with two 10's ( i think they're 10's, it doesn't matter though) recessed in the hatch. How does that set-up sound once the targa top is put back in ? Is there any distortion/rattling etc. Also, is the box sealed, or is it ported somewhere not shown in the pics.

Thomas,
I was checking out your web site and saw you guys did mail order/internet sales. I'm redoing my Talon and want to use Focals (you've got them in that supra pic so I assume you sell them) if you can e-mail me with prices for the Polykevlar series and the Utopia (the top two models) for a 6.5'' component set it woudl be appreciated. [email protected] I can't find any places around here that deal with Focal and don't want to go through internet sources I don't trust.

I know this is not what you are wanting to hear but, it is not possible for me to sell products and ship them to other cities. (It violates dealer agreements I have with vendors)

The ONLY things I can sell via the internet are discontinued items. Nothing that is a current item.

About the only way I could sell you a set of speakers is if you had someone come into my shop and purchase the speakers.

They could then be shipped to you by THAT person.

Sounds dumb, but it is the way it is.

now when adding sound deadening how do stop the water from getting on the speaker from behind ????
also the pods for 300 will it have enough volume inside as not to distort the speakers ???

pics of the door panels off would be much better !and more informative on the install you speak of!

The enclosure for the door isn't recommended by me. Someone prior just asked if it could be done. I don't believe it would sound better (in a Supra remember!) based on the amount of internal space you would be able to obtain and still have the window function correctly.

As far as the water down the door question, I don't know about your doors but the window seal prevents water from getting down into the door. With the window's up, water can't (in a properly sealed door) get down into the door. Now if you are driving around with your windows down in the heavy rain, this might be an issue. Rain would seep down the slot where the window comes through BUT, even then, such a small amount would get into that slit that it wouldn't be bad enough to actually damage a speaker. So, as far as water damaging the speaker I would say that if all of your door seals are functioning correctly, this won't be an issue. You gotta remember, a Supra isn't a 68 Ford Pickup, water isn't gonna get down into the doors like it would with an old pickup! Or a MUSTANG!! lol

Sorry for the delay in answering this question...

Dynamat - Attn Thomas

Would it be a good Idea to apply Dynamat to the Doors. Thomas, what do you recommend... as you said there is not much space in the doors of a Supra. Where would one mount the Dynamat on the doors, im a novice when it comes to Dynamat.

If it can have Dynamat stuck to it, do it.
Yep... there is no such thing as "too much" sound deadening.
Just apply it from the speaker outward.

Makes a big difference for your audio inside the car and eliminates a great deal of the noise that is trying to get in the car. (road noise)
