These are super cool optional accessories for all models of the Del Sol. 1992 – 1998. They are very easy to install.
First off, you will have to get your door panels off the car. Really no way to get this installed with the door panels being on. So pop those bad boys off. Note* I am using an extra door panel for practice.
So notice you will have 3 components here: The gem tweeter speaker itself. The brackets and the housing. 2 small screws as well.
You will notice on the back side of the door there will be little nubs aligned in a circle. This is what you have to cut out.
I choose to use my dremel with a little disc cutter. The main take away here is just to not cut outside of this circle. PLEASE DO NOT CUT THE WHOLE TOO BIG. LEGIT WILL RUIN YOUR DOOR PANEL.
Once the hole is cut. Simply slide everything into the hole (that’s what she said) and use the bracket and screws to hold the tweeter in place. As you tighten the screws it will prevent the housing from sliding around.
Norman the Saint Bernard was of no help during installation* These need to face towards the driver or passenger and not away from them to ensure a nice acoustic balance inside the sol.
AND BOOM! They are in. You will notice the shape of the housing will form to the door panel. That’s how you know they were installed on the correct side.
My test door panel*
Installed on the door panels I actually use.
I did not have time to wire them in this weekend due to family time but this will come in part 2!
Have a great sunday funday!
