The car comes with only two speakers - this was the old school days of mono AM radio. When I got the car, the speakers had been replaced, but they hadn't been mounted to the enclosures - they were just stuffed in place and the enclosure was screwed on. They also distorted like crazy on the highway with the targa top off, so it's time to find some better speakers and securely mount them in place.
The speaker mounting locations on the back side of the enclosures are now non-standard.
In order to stop the metal frame of the speaker buzzing against the plastic of the enclosure, I used a strip of gasket material. I had to use big steel washers to bridge the gap from the mounting point to the speaker frame.
And here we are, fully mounted back in place and sounding great.
