      Don't know anything about them. I give them points, tho for at least trying to come up with products to fit our old girls.

          I agree, but you know how it goes, There's just one photo straight on and I can't really tell how well it fits the opening.

          Lots of reading to do so cannot (or should not) judge by only one or two pics. Price at $320. (CDN) about half of what some greedy sellers are commanding for 'well-used' factory AM/FM units. There are speaker issues to deal with when upgrading from very common AM - especially when only a 4 by 10" in the dash. While most of our cars have provisions for pair of 6 by 9's at rear package area, what if rear defrost option for right side is something you wish to retain? I have relocated the blower unit to just below orig. mount area in the past but, with two speakers mounted in the back, they have to share the one 'speaker box' - yes, the trunk itself.
          Very few, if any, provisions for extra front speakers since not a lot of room in the kick-panels and, mutilating the main door panels is a definite no no. I think there were small speakers mounted at top (left and right) sides of dash top, but I haven't seen any since all of my cars were only AM.

          I got a conversion piece from Moparmat2000 here on FABO to mount two modern 3.5 inch speakers where the weak original 4x10 was. I'll use a "dual speaker" in the remaining 6x9 space in the back (yep, I love my rear defog blower, too). I got turned on to these dual speakers from the guy at Retro Radio who converted that AM radio to AM/FM with an auxiliary input. (The conversion works but the switch from AM to FM is by switching the knob on and off fast and it can be really finicky) The dual speaker takes wires that would go to two separate rear speakers and has two sets of tweeter and mid range and a share bass. I wish I could get one of the e-body speaker/defog frames that allow the defog blower and a 6 inch round speaker, but I haven't been able to find one. My other Darts have speakers in new specially made kick panels, but then the floor vents only open half way.

          Hey man, any chance you do this for people by request or are willing to share where you got your parts and how you tackled that conversion?

          Thanks
