1990 Acura Legend L Sedan

trying to find out an easy way or modified way to install some 6 1/2" alpine component speakers in front. The white plastic factory speaker bracket is not deep enough. I cut the back out of it and it may work but speakers will not sit flush. Anybody have any ideas? The backs are no problem. I own two legends and do not remember what speakers I put in my other one or if it even had the same plastic factory bracket. I can take pictures if anyone needs them. The speakers are Alpine SP-600C's. Crutchfield said they fit, but they do not, nor does crutchfield sell any type of speaker bracket.

i have 6.5 kenwoods in my red coupe doors, i just found some really long screws, screwed them into the white plastic, cut away the two bottom tabs of the speaker cover and screwed the speaker covers directly to the door panels.

since you have sedans, it may be different.

I got 6.5" Kenwood speakers on my fronts. Where it sits, your gonna have to trim it a little bigger so it can sit flush. Take your time on it and you'll get it to fit.

Maybe there's a little more room in the coupe front doors but I have 6.5" Pioneers that fit perfectly w/ no modification.

I replaced the speakers a little while ago on my 1990 sedan and can tell you that the alpines you're looking at will not fit. You can fabricate new brakets and/or just spacers, but I would advise, if possible, to look at a different pair.

Don't trust Crutchfield, their info is not accurate in many cases and can not be relied upon. For example, they claim that a DD stereo will not fit into our Legends.

thanks to everyone. I had to cut the back out of the factory brackets and screw the alpine spacers into the factory bracket and then screw it back into the door,then I put the tweeters in the black plastic mirror cover on the door. looks good, sounds good. thanks again.

I'm trying to install alpine 600c's in my legend similar to what slidelljones33 did.
I hoping to mount the tweeters in the sail (little black plastic triangles) covering the wires to the sidemirrors. but when i popped off the sail, im unsure how to run the component wires down to the woofer in the sidedoor. it doesn't look like there is enough room for another wire to run down there. any info?

What did you have to do to mount those? I haven't taken off the side panels on my car before, so I'm wondering how much of it did you have to take off to install those, and how much work it is?

is the electrical wiring exposed if you take off the panels, or did you do some digging?

Once you remove the screws that holds the panel, you will need to unplug the door light, and window switch. It's got a lot of space in there and the tweeter wires won't get caught anywhere cause there's a plastic film covering the holes.

2 screws on the side, 1 inside the handle where the window switch is, and use a flat head screw driver to pop out the cover inside the door opener which will reveal 2 screws. The bottom part of the door pops out. Then to remove the panel, have the window down and carefully start pulling the panel upwards.
