Rear Speakers

So looks like i just have 4 speakers, doors and back seat panels. I haven't looked too hard at them yet, i know the passenger side back one is blown, does that grille just pop off and you can replace easily, or do you have take out the whole panel?

the back ones? just the grill thing
the front ones require you to remove the entire door pannel.

If you have a stock headunit and don't want to put stock replacement speakers in (non-Monsoon speakers might be hard to find), I recommend the Polk DB651 (not the DB651S) for the rear, and the DB651S for the front.

My factory base model speakers were yanked out after the 3rd week I had the car. It was a brand new car and it handled like crap and sounded worse!........lol. I threw in some infinity speakers and a JVC head unit and all was better. Ya know, I brought the sucker back to the dealer ship because I thought the speakers were replaced with used ones by some punk kid who details or something like that. The guy in charge of the auto repair part of the dealership was crackin up.....lol. He said you got a BRAND NEW $19,800 Base model and it is what it is...........W.T.F! That was 192,000 miles ago. Two stereos' and 2 sub woofers later I can tell you that it is a fun project to replace the sound system your self. You should have no problems if you take your time, use shrink tube for any connections and try to get speakers that fit the car like the ones suggested above. GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN.

For the price, you cannot beat Morel speakers at any level, they just sound amazing. Morel Loudspeakers - Mobile Audio - Point Source Speakers - Maximo Coax That's their new entry model, I paid $250 for my rear Tempos (The step up from that)

The specs of the Tempo Coax in 6.5" pale to that of the specs of the Polk, and I'm pretty sure that at $100/pair for the Polks (& the added fact that you don't have to replace the headunit or buy an amp just to drive them, like the Tempo Components), it's quite a value. Just sayin'. I have heard good things about CDT speakers as well. The base model Firebirds received 4 speakers TOTAL, with single voice coil coaxial speakers, powered by the headunit.
