    I am looking into solutions for mounting 2 siren speakers behind the grille of my 2009 Access Cab. This is for Code 3 response for the Fire Dept I'm on. I traded my 1998 GMC Jimmy in last week, and haven't looked back! Here's a quick vid of what the Jimmy looked like last week (I kept all the lights, of course) :D:p

    I am looking for a no-holes drilled method of mounting speakers similar to this one: https://www.speedtechlights.com/product_detail.php?catid=7&id=6 The issue is, they weigh 3-5lbs. I was looking into the elusive elements mount to go along with his grille insert. Just wanted to bounce the idea off of someone before I drop $$$ on something I might end up breaking.

    Also, please keep the legality discussion to a minimum, I wouldn't do this if it was illegal. :D

    you could possibly tuck them on the front clip right behind/next to the headlights. there are several holes that will allow access for your wiring and to be able to hold the 3-5 lb. speakers. i have a PA system on my truck and have my speaker tucked in the same spot and it doesnt vibrate and looks clean and professional. hope this helps and others will also chime in to help you.

    best of luck

    i fit a federal signal dynamax ms100 speaker behind there with no holes drilled. i'll try to remember to take pictures tomorrow for you if you want. it sits directly behind the front license plate behind the opening above the valence.

    Probably a lot smaller than what you're doing
