Speaker Mounting

Hi everyone.

I am curious of where people with other 70 convertibles have mounted speakers. I am tempted to get the ABS plastic kick panels with speaker pods, but I am afraid that the protrusion from the panel will interfere with the functioning of the parking brake (I have been told the protrusions extend out 2.5in). Has anyone else tried these? Do people have recommendations of where I should mount the speakers? Do the dash speakers on the market today have good sound quality?

Bear in mind, I am also changing out my radio (in 2004 I removed the factory radio...think I might have it somewhere, need to look...and replaced it with a pioneer radio). I am going to install a retrosound radio (most likely the zumba model).

Many thanks

Jason

update

Ok...so I have bought myself a Retrosound zuma radio (thank you CJ pony parts for the end of the year blowout sale and making my wallet not as thin as it could have been)...now from some preliminary measurements that I have taken, it looks like the kick-panels with the speaker pods are not going to clear the emergency brake. So does anyone have any suggestions on where I could or should mount the speakers (I have someone who could build a box for me...the requirement is that is has to be removable).

Many thanks,

Jason
