    Can a 15inch speaker (K130) fit in a 5F8a Twin Cab without modification?

    I'm gonna go with probably not.

    I just went and measured mine... the open grill cloth is only slightly larger than 15". I honestly don't think there would be room for the basket around the chassis.

    I think you'd need another inch or two in height or depth....

    Hmm, the Narrow panel Pro is 20” x 22” x 10” and the Twin is 19” x 26 1/2” x 10 1/2”. Too much of a squeeze?

    I think it'll be a serious squeeze at the top of the basket, around the chassis. I am pretty sure the transformers are out of the way, though.

    It looks like it would be awful tight to me.

    That sucks, I really wanted to do a 2 x 12 (k120s) but they are ridiculous right (1k!!! for a pair). I wanted to see if I could fit a 15 as k130s are cheap, guess I'm gonna have to wait.
