Upgrade for the 1979 vintage stereo speakers

The original speakers are not bad but I have considered replacing them with something that might have a better frequency response / sound quality.

Since it is a round speaker mounted in a rectangular base, it looks like some modifications could be made to put in some old school style 6x9's, while still using the original grilles.

Maybe some Dynamat or similar thick rubber could be placed on the backside of the exterior wall skin, directly behind the speakers, adding some mass to enhance the low frequencies a bit.

I could care less about sub woofers, surround sound, or connecting my TV to the system. Just wondering what someone else might have used for a basic upgrade.


Its a camper, therefore it leaks.

google speaker reviews for the size and shape you have
you should be able to easily find a drop in solution .

on my 22FB i had to add a spacer as the new speaker was deeper

if you are handy, you can make one from wood or foam
