Are you able to fit 6x9 type speakers in the back tray?  Just remember your not allowed to cut out the rear metal tray anymore… you must you spacers if the hole isnt big enough. 

You can't cut holes in the parcel shelf ?

I did and VTNZ had no issues.
That they didnt even look...

Others haven't been so lucky - they've needed to get the modification certified.
All it takes is one WOF test guy in a zealous mood to notice, and you've got quite a major problem to deal with.

Probably getting OT as it sounds like the parcel tray isn't a valid option for this work vehicle. But using spacers, pods or a full custom tray angling the speakers towards the occupants will provide better sound anyhow.

If the parcel tray is metal then yes cutting is a no go. 

I had someone question it (not a tester), So took it apart and due to a neat job i said, Its factory 6x9.
If you do some jackass job and rip it to shreds then yeah. Derp.

Thanks for the replies, all good info. 

As I havent put a cd in a head unit since the 90's I am considering getting a mechless unit. Is there any difference other than the obvious? If they are cheaper, then Im definitely interested.
