    I have an 02 SS vert and the passenger door speaker is blown. I have the Monsoon stereo with 12 disc cd changer. Any suggestions on a new set of speakers? What size are they?

    i got an Alpine iDA-X001 installed (highly recommended) and replaced all my speakers with memphis 6.5"'s, i think i paid 180 for the 4 speakers, and they sound really good, i listen to loud metal most of the time.

    i let someone else install mine, the back ones are easily accessible, on a 93-97 anyway, i dunno about 98-02 , but you have to remove the whole door panel to get to the front ones, i saw a friend of mine do it once, it didnt look easy.

    Camaro Speakers

    13 October 2007

    I replaced all of the factory speakers in my Camaro with Sony X-Plod units, and I've been delighted with the greatly enhanced sound reproduction. However, I run an SLP Loudmoth exhaust on my Z28RS, so my exhaust note is essentially my REAL audio system (HA!).

    Seriously, though, I wouldn't recommend replacing your original speakers with a new pair of GM speakers from the dealer at all, especially since you said you paid $65.00 a piece. I paid $49.00 for my pair of Sony X-Plod door speakers, and the sound quality is far superior to the factory units: The highs are crisper, the mids are much more well-defined, and the bass is deep and undistorted. Also, when I held the two speakers in my hands, the Sony unit really punched harder than the factory one. In short, I got a lot of bang for my buck, both literally and figuratively.

    monsoon speakers

    I had the same problem - cheap factory speakers blew. Most aftermarket speakers won't work since factory speakers are 2 ohm, and aftermarkets are 2 ohm. If you can find some good 2 ohm speakers, then get them. I replaced my system with a din and a half sized head unit to fit the dash, put in an amp and some 6 1/2 jbl subwoofers in the side of the back seat. JBL 6" speakers in front - very crisp, excellent sound clarity. The woofers may be small, but they are excellent - provide much more bass than factory. They are so deep with such big magnets, they barely fit in there. I kept the overall concept of the monsoon system intact, but dramatically improved quality. I had to route wires, but it wasn't that bad. The door panel comes off in about 1 minute.

    Eather way, if they start to crap out I would replace all of them then install a aftermarket deck of your choice.
