    You mean you replaced all 10 speakers? I only have 1 that is giving me the problem- I'm selling the car, but fixing little things one by one and don't have alot of cash...

    Just the two sail panel speakers.
    They are pretty much junk from the factory....so I went ahead and replaced them both at once.

    Ok- could recone just the one- or I found on auto part express- 6.5" Bose for 13.50 ea.- could do both back ones-
    will check the other place too- Question- if I replace the 2 rear with Bose will it sound any different or is that a dumb question...

    It would likely sound different. Depends on ohm load and power.
    You would also need to verify they are not too deep of a magnet otherwise you would need a spacer to have them fit....which would probably cost more than the speakers themselves.

    Car guy says they are the same ohm-4 and should handle to power fine, and that we won't need the spacer-cool. I'll still check around a little, but I've gotten some good ideas- thanks you guys.
