Hi
Has anyone replaced the speaker in the dash on a 72 torino? Does it remove from the top or bottom?
Thanks

I think it would be easier, maybe even necessary to pull the dashpad.

Thats what I am trying to determine. If I have to remove the dash pad or can it be removed from underneath. Had some audio work done on car and they could not get to the speaker from under the dash to replace it. I told them if it looked to difficult to leave it and I would swap it out.
thanks

The way it fastens into the bracket, I’m pretty sure you have to get it from the top. There’s one for sale on eBay that shows how it fastens in. It might be doable from below???

You'll absolutely have to access it from pulling the dash pad because of where the hold-down bolts are.

I had a dual voice coil 6x9 sitting around, but it's too deep -- the magnet hits the stuff below it and keeps it from going into place. I was able to use a pair of 4-inch round speakers instead on the same speaker holder.
