CNC Machined C5 / C6 Door Speaker Mounting
So you're looking to
upgrade the speakers in your C5 / C6 or Z06 and you need a way to mount an aftermarket driver in the stock openings. You could
use plywood and make the shape yourself, but if you're really into audio then you'll be concerned that wood will absorb moisture
and may not be stiff enough to get the most out of the drivers you just dumped a TON of money on. We have exactly the what
you need, an exact fit, CNC machined mounting plate made of 5mm (approx 0.205") thick high pressure canvas phenolic laminate.
This premium material is extremely dense which makes it very moisture resistant and also very stiff, ready to handle hardest
C5 = The plates (2) are setup for a 6.5" 2-way component set with a 143mm (5.625") hole
for the midbass driver and a 46mm (1.8") hole for mounting a tweeter. For those that mount the tweeter elsewhere, the space
above the midbass can be used for the crossover instead. Holes are pre-dilled to match the mounting pattern of the door, so
all you have to do is drill the pattern for whatever speakers you're
installing(pilot drilling STRONGLY recommended!).
= The set consists of 4 pieces, 2 each for the 10" sub opening in the door and 2 for the 3.5" midrange mount in the
door panel. The 10" has a 143mm (5.625") hole that is offset 1/2" down and over, to maximize the exposure of a driver to the
door panel grille. The 143mm (5.625") hole will accommodate almost any 6.5" driver, but check the driver's specs to make sure
the speaker will pass through the opening and rest on its frame. The 3.5" plate has a 46mm (1.811") hole to accommodate many
aftermarket tweeter pods. All you need to do is drill holes to mount your specific speaker. The material will hold screws
better than wood so you can use self-tapping screws for mounting or drill through for the a clip or nut on the back side.
