mounting 6X9s without removing the deck?

Postby themadness » Sun Jun 10, 2012 2:57 pm

is there anyway to remove the original rear speakers and mount new ones from the bottom? replacing the speakers with out taking all the stuff from the back seat would make life so much easier.........

I think the cutoff was 1992 or 1994. I forget..I used to know this. You may lose an inch of clearance in your trunk. To remove you must do it from top by removing a inside panel. It will give you clearance for speakers with tweeters that stick up. Then you can screw them to the bottom with self drilling screws.

No you have to take the deck off. GM did that so it would make it hard to steal those great stock speakers.


keep'em flying!

You have to remove it to remove the stock speakers yes... I just did that as well, but I did what Cack said, I re-mounted the aftermarket ones from below. Its only sheet metal screws going into the deck so I was even able to reuse the stock screws to hold in my new speakers.

Maybe its different, but I doubt it... My seats are only 4 bolts and it comes out, and then the two rear top plastic parts are on screw each and three push clips.

Once you take the back seat out a couple times you get good at it. You'll fear it less once you get good at it.

My 92 has wire hooks that mount from the bottom. I can change the rear 6x9's in seconds. I will get a pic for you.

Not the sturdiest but never had them fall off. They do spin around sometimes as you can see in the pic. You also don't feel the effects of the bass as much. In my 95 that had them screwed in my mirrors would shake without even having a sub box.

well thats different.

my factory rear speakers sound hella good with that right songs. my mp3 player is squat but my tablet sounds like a surround sound. i play it through an fm transmitter. if i could get that passenger side speaker working right i wouldnt even change them. taking the back seats and stuff isnt a huge task but it would be nice not to have to do all that
