    Monsoon Sound?

    What are good 6.5 speakers to use to replace the stock ones (Rear Seat Panels) that will still sound as good if not almost identical with the monsoon setup? There pretty much the ones that provide all the bass, so I wanna find some that will be direct replacements...

    Did you have to get a special harness to hook them up? or did u have to cut the wires off the original harness to connect the new speakers?

    No harness. The best way is to solder the wires onto the speakers therefore there is no problems with the connection and isnt messing with the performance of the speaker. Or you could crimp a connector that will fit onto the speaker terminal and do it that way if you dont have a soldering gun.

    What do you do with the two sets of wires (total of 4) from the stock speaker to the new Speaker.. do u know what i mean? The new speaker comes with only 2 speaker wire connections and the stock ones have 4 total around the speaker. Did u get component or 3 way speakers...?

    i didnt get anything im just doing this off the top of my head. You just connect 2 of the wires together and then the other 2 together. Depends what ohm the speaker is and you will just have to figure out which wires are + and -. Here http://www.the12volt.com/caraudio/wo...igurations.asp

    Kicker also makes a low profile sub in 6.5 size. It's only a sub so it should work with the factory system.

    I've actually been able to salvage my rear panel speakers with some black silicone to seal the torn part of the speakers... It works awesome!! They sound as good as new too! It has been the quickest and cheapest fix and it works... Talk about saving a couple of hundred bucks...

    I have done the same on other cars. It does work well so long as the voicecoil remains in alignment.

    True true... I'm surprised one of em still even works because when I was reinstalling them my lil boy crushed the little cone in the middle of the speaker, I thought for sure it was no good... but it still sounds alright.. knock on wood... Hopefully this quik fix will last a while..

    The center part is really just a dust cover for the voicecoil. Should be fine.

    I think I had one for 4-5 more years after the repair and it worked fine.

    are there any diy instructions on how to do the silicon fix to the speakers correctly? maybe a thread or something? i might end up checking my speakers out and possibly trying this out this spring.

    If there is a tear in the speaker surround or cone you can often repair it in this manner. If the speaker is simply blown there is no fix. Most of the time that is the case.
