ICE in a Hawkeye- Newage


Recommended Posts

So this topic has been done to death, lots of threads out there lots of
information:


 

I found out that in my Hawkeye newage if I wanted to change the front door speakers:

 

I would need to use 6.5 inch speakers
 

1.Corsa C speaker spacer rings will work

 

However i purchased the 6.5 inch corsa C speaker rings and they did not appear to fit
the car, the holes were out of alignment not by 1-2 cm but massively, the
adaptor was not even a close fit. I can trace the OEM and make one out of wood
but don’t really have the time.
 

2. The OEM tweeter can be directly swapped out with the uprated one
 

The OEM tweeter is about half the size of my new one, there’s no way it will fit,
not unless I make a bracket of some sort (which is possible since I do stage
props)

 

3.You can place the cross over box in under the door card

 

I can find anywhere in the car where i can place the cross over box, the door
card fits flush against the metal work am I missing the pocket of space ?.

 

How can i secure my Sub Box to my boot ?

My old car had ratchet holes so i used to just ratchet it in place i cant find any decient places to secure the sub box to my boot.

I managed so solve all the problems listed my issue now is where to re wire the cross overs to :

 

the stock OEM wires comes with the 6.5 and tweeters separately

So i need two wires to wire the cross over to 

Do i use the wires below for the 6.5 or do i have to re wire the whole thing to the radio ?

Where do the OEM tweeter wires go back to if they are separate to the midrange door cable?

 

 You may find an existing crossover in place behind the dash already filtering the signal - in that case wiring the crossover to the midrange door wires will present little to no output to the tweeters

 

If your tweeters are already installed and working - you may be able to have the midrange connected directly without using the crossover

I was planning on putting 6.5" speakers in my hawkeye with the corsa adapters. Can I please ask which ones did you buy and how you got it to fit?

 

Were these what you bought?

The wires went all the way back into the radio wiring loom, so i just wired the cross over back though the existing wires for the tweeters
