  • 1961 HAWK DASH RADIO SPEAKER

    What size is the radio speaker in the dash (right under the radio) ?
    It had a 4"x10" stuffed in it (didn't fit) too long. So I ordered a 5"x7" from SI and it doesnt fit either.(too tall)wont clear radio.These are the only 2 sizes I have seen offered from SI and neither fits.

    Not sure what is stock, but another standard size is 4 X 6.

      If you can get yourself up under the dash enough to measure the distances between the mounting studs, you can match it up with one at your local Circuit City, Best Buys, Radio Smack. You'll probably find a much higher quality speaker too. Just a thought, BTDT.

            Thanks guys ! I removed the bracket that the speaker mounts to and took it with me shopping. It is a 4"x 6". Found one at advance for about $10.00.BTW THE REAR SPEAKER IS 5"X 7"

              If it's the stock Delco radio, you should use 10 ohm speakers. Most sold these days, including the ones I've seen from SI, are 4 ohm. They will overheat the transistor on the back of the radio, that drives them. I wouldn't expect them to sound right, either.
              If the coils in your old speakers are ok, the paper cones can be replaced. There are people who do this; or materials are available to DIY.
              New, 10 ohm, 4x10 and 6x9 speakers are available.
              Although the performance of the '60's Delco radios and speakers used in Studes is technically limited, that's how we listened to the music. I don't think anything above 4 KC is supposed to come out of the stock radio. There's a 4mfd capacitor from the speaker connection to ground.
              If you really just want to listen to tunes, a boom box under the seat may be a good solution.
