    Blown Speaker

    My bird came with a blown speaker directly behind my head and I cannot take the feeling of someone shaking macaroni in my ear anymore. Few questions.

    If I replace all the speakers will the 2 ohm stock amp be an issue? If so how can it be fixed?

    What are the sizes of the stock speakers all around?

    Is there anyway of limiting the output? My Monsoon doesnt have a volume gauge so theres no way of knowing when youre pushing the limits of the system.

    Thanks in advance

    Ones in the sail panle behind your head are 2 ohms the rest are 4. The two in the sails are the subs. There is a thread on how to replace them with aftermarket subs or you can run standars 4 ohm full range speakers in the sails and disconect the far rear speakers in the hatch area and run the wires for those forward to the sails. You wount have any subs that way but you can also add a stealth sub box in the hatch and use a seperate sub amp and balance the system back out that way. This is what I did. You can always look for a used 2 ohm sub to replace it but it will go again. The replacement is not easy and will require work but if you just want to replace them it's the best option. write up: How to replace the stock subs with eu700s
    As far as speaker sizes they are as follows.
    Front door-5 1/2 to 6 1/2 Need adapter rings with most speakers but some do not. 6 1/2fit better.
    Sail panel- 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 with adapter ring again some 6 1/2's will fit with out
    Hatch area- 4inch
    Front have 2 sets of wires going to them. one set is for Low/mid only and the other is for highs only. you have to seperate them out.
    Cruthchfield.com has all the info as to what fits and they usually give you adapter rings and any other parts needed to make the install easy. check them out for what fits as far as full range speakers go. They don't sell a replacement sub. the link above is your best bet for info on those. Check the top of the stereo section for other info on the monsoon system.

    Firebird coupes have component 6.5S (6.5" oversize) 2-ohm mids and .75" 4-ohm tweeters mounted separately in the doors, dual voice coil 6.5S (4-ohm + 4-ohm) subs mounted in the sail panels (beside the rear seat), and component 4" 4-ohm mids and .75" 4-ohm tweeters mounted separately in the hatch area.

    2 ohm mids and subs and 4 ohm tweeters and in the hatch. The mids and subs are powered off the amp at 2 ohm and the tweeters and hatch speakers off the HU at 4 ohm.

    At least that's how the setup is for the Camaro.
