Default stereo horn set in truck ceiling

probably a silly idea, but has anyone build a stereo pair of full range driver horns in a car?

reason being is I have an old truck, 4 door with tray on the back, but there is NO room anywere to mount some speakers... but...

The truck does have quite a high roof, and probably is around 150mm space available that I could possibly build in a couple of flat horns?

waste of time?, just wack some car speakers from joe's car audio emporium in some icecream containers and screw em to the ceiling?

An idea of dimensions (not exact), ie a mockup, speakers and mouth are not to dimensions :-), nor is anything else...
Look at some 6/6.5" full range driver, ie a fostex or something else?

Am I nutty? :-)

<- left/front at this end right/rear back seats at this end ->

Hmm, interesting. But will your head be able to get into the sweet spot? Maybe you can get a reduction of size by using rear-firing horns loading your ceiling's "corners". Audio in a vehicle is tough.

steveodude -

I'm the OSB King of the site, also least educated and most likely to remain such. Thank You, Thank You.

Point is I've built 100 of everything that shouldn't possibly work and 50 of it sounded half decent.

If you're not gona knock your lights out getting in it's worth a go, I'd think Maths pretty difficult to figure so my 'just build it' method as good as any but I wouldn't invest much in expensive drivers on it unless you were pretty certain numbers would work .

I'd like to see the truck, seems to me any crew cab would lend to all kinds of possibilities.
