Looking at replacing all the speakers, and I want to make sure I didn’t miss any hidden ones. Is my list missing anything:

4 - 2” speakers. One on the lower left and right sides of the dash, and one above each rear sliding window

3 - 6.5” speakers. One on the front driver/passenger side doors and one on the rear right panel

2 - 4” speakers. One on each of the rear driver/passenger side doors.

Anyone have a place where they hide a thin subwoofer and enclosure?

TIA.

Okay. I got all the speakers replaced, and I’ve got a question about the 6.5” speaker in the rear of the vehicle. Was that a factory sub woofer? Is there a separate amp for that? I noticed the speaker wires run into another adaptor. It’s currently the only speaker that’s not having any output.

It depends on which option your 80 was fitted with, but it's a good bet that is a subwoofer; if it was, it had a separate amp.

I used the 6.5” in the front doors, and I bought a second pair because I thought the rear panel speaker was a regular speaker. Looking at your diagram, I see that it was a subwoofer, and I’m guessing the amp is done.

I used the 4” speakers in the rear doors.

Has anyone managed to fit an 8'' shallow mount sub in that spot? Anyone know of any company that makes a custom box to hide the sub somewhere else?

The kicker hideaway and similar subs fit under the driver seat (and also in the stock sub location). They aren't high output, but they take up very little room.

While Hog Tech made a bracket for an 8" woofer and a mono amplifier. People complain that they can't order them for whatever reason:


@tntdonyute is considering production of a copy of the Whole Hog bracket:


This is probably the best 'concealed' subwoofer mounting I've seen on here, but may be more work than you're interested in:

Thanks for the link to all these. I will try and be better about using the search function on this site. After looking at these threads, and some others, I went ahead and ordered a 10" shallow mount subwoofer and amp. Going to try and squeeze it in there (with some fabrication) once it arrives.
