    You could just remove the factory speakers and replace them with new one. The only thing to check on is whether or not the sail speakers are 2 or 4 ohm and single or double input.

    Thanks. I'm pretty sure all of the factory speakers for the Monsoon system are 2 ohm. I've already had 4 ohm MB Quart speakers installed in the doors and they sound great. I had them professionally installed though, so they may have done something different.

    Hmmm...perhaps mine are 4 ohm then, seeing as I've got those 4 ohm aftermarkets working fine in the doors.

    Nope. The subs are 2 ohm in our cars.

    Okay, thanks Dena. What about the rears? And I assume the door speakers are 4 ohm?

    2 ohm mids and 4 ohm tweeters mounted coaxially in the door. 4 ohm in the hatch.

    What series of Kicker mids are you running? I may go with that as MB Quart doesn't offer any mid range subs.

    I've got the Kicker CVT65, 2 ohm.

    Oh, and wanted to add that 4 ohm for the doors is fine. But, the mid are powered off the amp at 2 ohm and the tweeters off the HU at 4 ohm.

    I have completely separate tweeters.

Shoot, I was happily surprised to find out they were still around because they did my entire Kenwood sound system in my 69 1/2 Chevelle back in 1990.

    But, while I have the Kickers, I have not had them installed yet. I went to do it myself and realized that I couldn't just bolt them up like I could the stockers or the rears. I just haven't gotten around to making that appointment for them to install them for me. It takes me forever to take care of things like this it seems these days

    But, one of the guys there has a super nice stock 2001 Camaro and he had me sit in his car and his system sounded great. Just like us, in that car, he has the stock Monsoon HU and amp. He apparently shows that car. He also has a 79 Camaro and that one is a thumper from hell! Totally custom and could rock a block party

    That's great to know it still sounds great with the factory HU and amp. I was thinking I could just buy both the mids and rear 4s and it would be a simple swap. That's not the case, huh?

    Ha! that's what I thought too

    The rears are easy. But, I opened the box on the kickers, took out my subs, was ready to go and then realized that they would not just bolt up. There would have to be a little fabrication involved and I was not up for the job

    So, I hooked the stockers back up and just kind of let it be. But, then the stock subs started making noise and sounded like crap. So, I need to get my butt in gear and get these kickers installed. I'm not going to mess it myself. These days... I prefer to pay someone to go through the headache

    Also, if you do the subs yourself, just remember when removing them to hold onto the clips cause they slip and fall and you can't always retrieve them

    If there's gonna be any fabrication that needs to be done, I'll just have someone install them for me. If you say the 4s are easy, I'll probably do those myself. You said you have put after markets in for the rears already?

    Yeah. The rears are a piece of cake. You need to drill out the rivets. That is the only pain in the butt.
