as i wrote before...after listening to some speakers for the car i have changed my decision on speakers going with ALPINE COMPONENT SPS171A AND SPS170A 2 WAY this will definitely improve the sound in the car and replace the junk with clarity and some punch from th sub once i adjust the gain on the amp for the sub . oh yes all this is 325 installed a great and not to expensive investment i think .....

speakers are installed and its like night and day radio volume at 52 and sounds nice and clear but id keep it like 48 . one problem stock speakers are 2 ohms and made of paper, put 4 ohm speakers and your radio will probably not cut off because its not using all that power to drive those oem crappers. in the back in the trunk behind the drivers side if you remove the cardboad on the left quarter there are 2 fenders let say well in between the outer quarter and inner is the amp for your woofer with your hand you can slip it there and adjust your sub like i did. now i play my music on 3 treble and std on the bass sounds great to me and nice thump from the stock subs . all speakers fit nicely and t looks all stock good luck everyone and i urge all to do this . :cheers

The other 49 states don't know that Pres. Bush made gasoline "free" for all Texans when he was elected in 2000. That's on the QT :D

Take about 6 gallons of unleaded race gas and mix that with your premium unleaded and the GTO runs like a banshee 12 gal prem + 6 gal juice

you'll get SES light until it burns through, but then it goes away. :cool

Were the tweeters from the component set mounted where the factory ones are? I see the speakers you got are all 6.5", did they fit exactly in the factory holes in the doors? I couldn't find any info on speakers sizes for the GTO on Crutchfield and I was curious. That would be great because I think I have some nice 6.5" speakers sitting unused at my house. :)

all speakers fit perfectly and yes i bought component for the front changed tweeters too it all sounds really good let all the bass come from the woofers and let you 6.5 work as midrange cause thats all there really good for
dont crank up the amp to much i found out it distorts your rear speakers , whata butcher job they did on this stereo im talking about gm . ive got the volume at like 50 and its running pretty clean with some decent bass .

I am about to install my sub and want clearer highs and midrange (without any distortion) to go along with it. I am going to leave the head unit alone for now. The front speakers are 6.5" with the tweater in the dash. Do you know what the other speaker sizes are in the GTO? Any info or suggestions would be appreciated.

there not that hard tp do just take door panels of and you have to take rear seat out just the bottom part typical speaker replacement not to bad . just take your time with it and youll be done in 2 hours or so let me know about your subwoofer placement it looks like a no go but who knows ,

How did you replace the tweeters in the dash? I kinda looked at it and really didn't see a way (at least yet) to get to it. Also, did you install the speakers yourself, or did you get it professionally installed? Thanks.
