73-87 cab corner 6X9 speaker brackets - 2nd series

These speaker brackets are very similar to the ones I have sold on here in the past, but I made a couple changes (based off customer feedback).

The two changes made were centering the speaker opening, and putting a small radius on the exosed corners for a more "finished" look.

These will fit most 6x9 speakers, however, I found out the hard way they will not accomodate 6x9's with 4" diameter magnets. With that being said, I assume you could make them work with the use of a small spacer or slight modifying and repositioning of the speaker bracket itself. 6x9's with a 3 1/4" magnet fit absolutely perfect with no modifications needed. These are made of heavy 16 ga steel, will be delivered bare steel, so you'll need to paint to match your interior or exterior. Basic self-tapping sheet metal screws will be provided. I decided to use stainless steel button head screws and lock nuts when I mounted these in my '73, felt it matched my interior better.

Please study the below picture carefully to ensure these brackets will fit your truck. I believe some of the early 3-point belt trucks had the retractors mounted where the top of these brackets sit...and therefore will not work.

These will also fit 88-91 OBS crew cabs.

Price for a set of these will be $65 shipped to your door (lower 48 only). I feel this is very comparable to those carpeted 6x9 boxes or other fiberglass/plastic enclosures available...but look 10 times better and are quality made out of steel, just like the trucks they are going in.

To see pictures and read feedback of others who have purchased these from me in the past, please click the link below.

If interested, please reply here and send me a PM. I accept and prefer PAYPAL, but will take money orders or cashiers checks.

Bill, I am waiting for the shop to finish up the next batch. If you like, purchase the set Randy is trying to sell 2 post up. The only real difference is the speaker placement on the brackets...which was just for looks why it was changed.

Re: 73-87 cab corner 6X9 speaker brackets - 2nd series

OK folks, I will have several sets with 6x9 openings available for shipment Wednesday (7/1). If you would like a set, please PM me. I will be out of town 7/4-7/11, so the earlier you PM me and pay, the quicker you will get your brackets.

Also, Randy has 1 set available, for less than these new sets are going for (shipping was cheaper when he purchased his, and they didn't coat as much to make due to ower steel prices at the time). Please contact him if you would like, it will help him out too and save you a little coin to boot.
