    Stock Woofers Finally Failed...

    The Monsoon system woofers failed on me and started making some disgusting noises when the bass hits. I really want to put in the Kicker 6.5" subs to replace them, but ABC warehouse told me if I put in anything thats after market they will have to re-wire my whole set-up. Is this true? I really want better woofers that i can just plug in and sound better. Please give me your opinions and experiences with this. Thanks.

    Kee Audio has complete replacement packages for the F-Body cars:

    The car doesn't need to be re-wired in order to install aftermarket speakers but the correct speakers are needed.

    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.
    The two door mids and two hatch mids account for four of the eight channels of the amp while the DVC subs account for two channels each to make up the other four channels. This leaves the front and rear tweeters to be powered directly by the head unit.

    Convertibles have component 6.5S 2-ohm mids and .75" 4-ohm tweeters mounted coaxially in the doors. The schematics show 6.5S 2-ohm woofers
    and .75" 4-ohm tweeters mounted coaxially in the quarter panels beside the rear seats but inspection of the actual speakers, by owners, has discovered both the woofers
    and tweeters are actually 4-ohm. All eight elements are powered by the amp.

    I currently have the Kicker 6.5 svc 2ohm in my camaro...tried to run them with the stock monsoon system and they were aprox. getting 30 watts....

    The rms for them are 150, so i bought a two channel kicker 300 watt amp, and now they are getting 150 watts and SOUND AMAZING...

    Im running infinity kappa 62.7i in the doors, jvc 4" in the hatch and the only thing left is for me to upgrade the headunit, but the Kicker along with the other speakers sound AMAZING
