I found these 4"x6" http://www.crutchfield.com/p_068R463N/RetroSound-R-463N.html?tp=100
and this little power pack http://www.crutchfield.com/p_500KTP445/Alpine-KTP-445-Power-Pack.ht...
The speakers should be here this week and I will update on how it sounds with the Alpine head unit and the KTP-445 power pack.
That's really cool! Could you please post a pic of your engine bay. I'm also trying to add a sub woofer but can't find a suitable place to port the amplifier cable to the battery.
Never mind, I figured it out. I had to take out a lot of stuff to see what was going on! I took out the glove box among other things... (I was trying to solve a different problem.)
There are two holes through the firewall that have other wires going through them. I led the amp wire through the hole closest to the door, which was behind the air pipe. You can also see a small pilot hole I drilled with a dremel... I got impatient... haste makes waste... :( I'll get some metal epoxy and seal that hole tomorrow.
There is a rust hole straight through my battery bay, which has collected rain water as you can see... Does anybody know what I can do to seal the hole? I'm thinking grind away the paint and weld new metal on top, then repaint? The passenger foot well gets wet when it rains.
I have a 1993 968, and I discovered in 2000 that the bottom of the battery well was all rotted out. I mentioned this to several other 968 owners and all said that they had not seen any problems. I thought about writing the repair up as an Excellence article, but dropped the idea when no other owners reported the problem.
In any event, I had an excellent solution that has worked perfectly since I repaired my car in 2000. I ground and sanded out all the rust. Then painted the entire battery well with POR-15 paint (http://www.por15.com/POR-15-Rust-Preventive-Paint/products/1/). With the paint still wet, I covered the surface with Fiberglas cloth, the same stuff you get in a Fiberglas body repair kit. I then liberally coated the cloth with the POR-15 paint. When dry, this was a stiff, solid surface there has not been a speck of rust since. You have to be careful not to plug any drain holes, or else water will back up and drain into the heater.
I got the POR-15 paint from Eastman... a quart is WAY more than enough to do the job. I still have most of the can.
Hope that helps!
Thanks Bob, I'll definitely consider this. I was also thinking of taking a real short cut with Pratley epoxy putty... Thanks
Thanks! I never did do this, possibly because I seldom drive the 968. I will check this out, however... there's no question that the low-end need more oomph in the 968.
