I have a question on the front speaker templates. Will they work in a Fleetwood also? I pulled the door panels off and I thnk the door looked different than the caprice/impala did. But I didn't have one beside me to compare it to. I have 5.25" separates from the factory. I want to put 6.5's in there. Is the front door the same on the Caddy's? It has the 5.25 mounted in a plastic enclosure, similar to the way the 4x6 was mounted in my old 96 9c1. But I don't know if was exactly the same. It's been a while...

So... will they work? :confused: If so, I'll do them this weekend.
Thanks!

Not sure but when we did Erik's (SSRM) Roadmaster the tmeplate worked and I think the RM has the same separates that you have. If you can take a picture of the door panel off I can tell you for sure. In Erik's, we put a 6 1/2" Focal in the door, no depth problems whatsoever.

I could take a pic, but I don't want to be pulling the door panel off and on more than I need to. It is very flimsy with the leather covering, it's not hard plastic like the imp/cap's are. I'm afraid I'd be pushing my luck and ruin it removing it too many times... I just wanted to do it one more time when I replaced the speakers... I didn't get a warm fuzzy feeling pulling it apart to put the pioneer *cough* *junk* *cough* speakers in there... It felt as though it was ripping apart when I was popping the panel off...


If you do need a pic to answer the question, then I can get one this weekend...

By looking at the OUTSIDE of your door, I will take a stab and give you a 90% probability of it being the same. I could be wrong.

Ok. I'll take a pic and post it tonight.
Do you have any pics of the imp's bare door (without the panel)? That way I can see if mine looked the same?

Thanks! :D

Looks almost the same as the Roadmaster. 99% sure it will work on your car.

wow there is alot of room in those doors. i bet you could put a set of 8's or 10's in an enclosure just in the door. that would be awesome for midrange. i need a fleetwood, wish they were cheaper.

It's the SAME DOOR. There is no difference under the panel from 91-96.

Here are some pics of my doors for comparison:


Bare driver's side door, minus some stock metal.


Passenger's side door with Dynamat and Focal 3-way... 6.5" and 4" are clearly visible, while the tweeter is mounted forward of the door handle (factory tweeter location). Bill, it looks like your Fleetwood got the same "premium" sound system I got, with the separate components in front. My stock mid was 6.5" though, also in a plastic enclosure.


The passenger's side door with panel on. Does the Fleetwood not have pockets in its doors? :confused: That's a bit surprising!

Yeah! Tell me about it. This car has ZERO storage space! I was so bummed when I went to "move in" to it when I bought it. There was no place for any of my stuff. I have the center console/fold down arm rest, but that's it. :( I've been considering looking for other door panels. Do you know of anybody who makes decent door pockets I could add to the bottoms of my doors? :confused:

Oh, and thanks for those pics... Looks like the templates will work for me.

Looks like the Roadmaster door panels might work on your car. Getting the color to match might be a bitch though.

SSRM,
How do you like those Focals? Mine absolutely kick ass! I have the 165K2s.
