| OK, got a bug up my butt and decided to rip apart the rear enclosure to get to the speakers, really just to see what's back there. (And to give myself some options about what to replace them with.)
This webpage discusses removing all the bits, and it's pretty much spot on.
So, everything out, here's what we have:
2-ohm 6x9 "subwoofer"
The depth of the speakers is pretty shallow, true. But there is PLENTY of room in front of the speakers, like 2 inches, before you get to that visible grill that's in the big surrounding trim. I'm thinking I could take some MDF/Plywood and build up that speaker baffle to accommodate pretty much anything, I'd guess.
So, i went ahead and ordered a pair of CDT 2-ohm subs.
CDT ES-690CFS GOLD.2
Mounting depth of 2.87".
I also went ahead and ordered the Phase 1 kit from BSW.
(I'd had a few cocktails friday night and was feeling frisky.)
Anyway, further updates as events warrant.
