    I hear you, I sort of made that transition since I got the car in early 01. Was single then, turned it a little too loud sometimes now I'm married with two kids and much more mellow. REO Speedwagon don't need to be at full volume to pump me up(-: Rollin with the changes

    OK, I bought the OEM speakers - as soon as I get them I will let everyone know how they worked out. Thanks for the suggestions.

    What was the point of the thread then? =(
    We all know how they'll work out...what swayed you away from aftermarket?

    The point of the thread was to find some quality replacements, which I hope happened with someone referring me to the seller of the upgraded OEM speakers on EBay. Also, we discussed cutting vs. not cutting wires, which was one of the major things that led me to buy these. The thread helped me - I hope everyone else didn't find it a waste of time. Thanks again to everyone.

    upgraded speakers? (which would make them not OEM)? Could you link us to the eBay page so those of us (like me) who have never heard of these can check them out?

    EDIT: I know you were looking for quality replacements, that's why I don't understand why you settled for OEM because you didn't want to snip some wires.. Most people don't mind the sound of our factory speakers - but the speakers will blow again due to cheap build quality and the distortion from the HU accelerates the process. -of course this all depends on whatever these speakers you link us to look like.

    They are supposed to be enhanced from the original ones, that couldn't handle the power that a monsoon stereo put out. You can see them at http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=150108943548

    It claims that the "high power" of the Monsoon system destroys the speakers...it was not the massive power or anything it produces....just the fact that the speakers build quality was really cheap and the HU distortion is really bad...combine that with regualr playing at high volumes... I wonder if they improved the build quality, or what.. I doubt it's anything dramatic -- hope they work out for ya though..

    Maybe some of us shouldn't be turning up the radio so damn loud,,,lol. I actually find the factory speakers very satisfactory for myself and my family. Like I discussed with someone on here before, once you are married with kids, you kinda outgrow that loud stereo stuff anyway...
    I would rather spend my money nowadays to make the car go faster anyway

    Sounds like you made a good choice to me,,plug them right in with no cutting and be done with it. Cheers. Larry.

    I will compare them to the original OEM speakers when I get them in a few days and will post what I find so that everyone will know whether they are worth getting or not.

    Ok I should be more clear -- I have NOTHING against how Monsoon speakers sound! Actually, I haven't even tampered with anything in this car besides a new HU and amp/sub setup, and they ARE comparable to the system I have put in my bro's Camaro (maybe partly because I don't play mine loud often at all and the previous owner was a cop who probably didn't either so they're in good condition). The reason factory speakers suck is, as mentioned, because they blow out so easily due to a combination of the cheap build quality (particularly the cone/suspension area, not sure how VCs are) and add volume and distortion put out by the factory HU to that and there ya go... All of my friends who play music at a decent volume have replaced their speakers - I have not, and I give credit to my HU. Through experience of others as well, a new HU will reduce the amount of blown speakers dramatically (the volume part can still kill them/etc.).

    2002 Z/28 VERT.

    I had to replace one & later the other front speaker not long after I bought my 02 Z vert. So I figured the original owner probably played the monsoon pretty loud. But the parts numbers you listed are the same as the replacement speakers I purchased from the local Chevy dealer and they really sound great. They've been in the car now for over a year & really sound outstanding.Plus the dealer has a 12 month warranty, I notice the warranty on the E-BAY replacements are covered for 2 years & they are $14.00 cheaper for the pair. Folks I don't know about you but my MONSOON sounds terrific.I've had a lot of car stereo's and some were pretty high dollar with big RMS amps & extremely low THD and none sounded better than my MONSOON.

    Previously I had a couple with a Monsoon that sounded WAY better than my convertible that I have now. If I remember correctly, I think there were more/different speakers in the couple. I thought it sounded great but was never very impressed with the sound in the convertible.

    Artic White
    00 SS Vert.

    Sorry to get off the topic, but, can someone tell me where the Monsoon system amp is supposed to be, and where the CD changer was mounted, in a Vert.?
    I just bought a SS which came with the Monsoon system, and CD changer (according to the RPO codes), but doesn't have the Monsoon logo on the faceplate, and there isn't a CD changer. I'm assuming the head unit was replaced with a regular CD/radio. I'd like to get the factory system back to original. Because it's a 2000 Arctic White SS Vert., with Black top, Leather int. So I think it's worth keeping original.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    Thank you,
