Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

The one fastner on the left is new, the one on the right has only been re-used once. If you look closely, you can see how the one re-used fastner is noticably "thinner" at the neck that applies the holding pressure, if you will, on the door panel. This sold me right there on always reconmending replaceing these evey time you pull a panel.

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

Because I knew someone would ask, I bought a couple from the stereo shop that installed my gear that are the "generic" brand fastners. I do not know where you can get these or who makes them, but I would stick with factory becasue in this picture we can clearly see that even the generic one has less "neck" than the factory piece. One the left is a new factory fastner, on the right is the generic version, both new.

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

While I was in there, I used some really good Gafers Tape to re-secure my door panel part number tags, as they were starting to peel and I did not want that tag to fly away into obilivion opr down into the door track. In the future if I have to pull the panel off for some reason it gets damaged, I'll have the right part numbers I need for replacement.

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

For those wondering how the Boston Emblems are attached and how to remove, I would think you need to pull the panel, as they are hot welded in the center, followed by two push rivets on the sides. I used the side cuts and a punch to remove.

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

Where can I find some 1/2" spacers like the ones you have? I can't find any that small and they'd be perfect for my build!

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

Very nice Mosier, great write-up. I have been wanting to pull my door panels and upgrade from the Boston's that are in there now. I see you still have the stock Boston amp; so do you think that the upgrade amp from Kicker isn't necessary? You like the sound of the new speakers with the stock amp? Thanks for any input.

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

I have found that the Kappas sound just fine with the factory Boston amp. The Reference series would have sounded a little better, a little more "warmer" if you will, but the Kappas are built so much more robust. Since I only wanted to tear off the door panels once, I bought the Kappas so they could stay in there if I ever wanted to get another amp, eq the WK differently and so on. The only thing thats realy different between the Kicker amp and the Boston amp is that the Kicker will allow an SRS mode, and it has the output to feed the dedicated subwoofer amp for the box subwoofers as part of the "Livin Loud" package. Also, it is eq'd differently to take advantage of the different acustical properties with the Kicker speakers and having a dedicated subwoofer for the lows. Both amps were built per Chrysler specifications for 46 watts root mean/square per channel at 2 ohms driven. I just went with all Kappas, and a Basslink in the back, and have been very pleased with it so far.

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

I tried to find the place you said you bought the spacers from on the web but no luck. So I was wondering based off your experience do you think 3/4" spacer is too much since thats all i can seem to fine.

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

nice write up bro, but you didn't have to take the switch bank out tho. At least I didn't have to, the only hidden screw I know of is the one behind the door handle. any ways , I bet that sounds epic. Mines a July 2008 Build.

Re: Fitting Infinty Kappa 6x9 in the Front Doors.

I don't know if the 3/4" spacer will work as even if you trimmed the plastic "baffle" in the panel, you may still have the edge of the speaker to close to the grill portion in the panel. When it hits fairly well, the speaker cones excursion will then have the surround hitting the grill, then the same problem manifest itself all over again. Since this was a couple years ago, I have since upgraded to components. Main reason was that I was still wanting better front staging with a touch more low end, but nice and tight, plus more volume. They (RKST in Pontiac, Michigan) used 1/2" mdf for the front 6.5", and centered it to boot. With the advent of the Helix P-DSP 8 Channel audio processor, I was finally able to keep the loaded up RER I have and the Boston amp, leave all that intact, and just branch off the rear full range audio outputs from the Boston Amp as inputs to the Heilx. Post Helix, you have full range audio that can be sent to 8 different channels, with up to 31 bands of EQ applied to each channel. Not to mention selectable slope crossovers, time alignment, phase selection, etc. You name it, it does it. Best money I ever spent on audio equipment (other than the dampening material) hands down.
