Sound System

I Love my GTO and wish GM would import more HOLDEN models with V8 rear drive. But I need to upgrade Sound System. Want to get the Blue Tooth factory kit and was thinking of getting a JL CleanSweep and hiding some amps away and new speakers. My Question where are the 10 Speakers located? I see 1 in each door, 2rear, 2 Subs and suspect there are tweeters in vent looking grills in edge of dash? But canít hear them. Anyone have any info on this, specific sizes would help Thanx in advance.

I did a JL sweep in mine. Only found the six you speak of. Might be more, but I didn't look any farther because of the splits I used, didn't need any more mounting spots. I left the rear subs out so I could get sound from the subs in the trunk. I had a cluster problem that the dealer blamed on the factory radio not being in the car. They also said they found a loose ground on the engine. Haven't had the problem since, been almost a month. I found it hard to believe the radio being out would cause all the prob's I had. So we'll see. Good luck on the swap. Bring friends if you do it yourself. Took 13 1/2 hours to do mine with two other friends. Car is built very well!

Basically all the components of a system one brand being all highs and mids amps and subs (like my 04 Denali I swept it with memphis car audio)

Dont go with the Bluetooth factory, go to http://members.cox.net/05gto/html/bo...th_install.htm that is what I did and I promise you will not be disapointed. If you do the buttons also it will look like it rolled off the line like that!

How do you like memphis audio I heard their subs were a joke from one person and then also heard they are the hardest hitting things you can find?
Let me know!

No, a JL Clean Sweep is a device that allows you to keep the stock head unit while still using aftermarket sound equipment.

It was allright....I went ahead and put in an Eclipse DVD in dash flip-out screen. Much better sound quality!
