Don't be offended if your post is deleted as the thread will be edited (condensed) for quicker reading.

The links will all eventually be in the first post.

Thank you for your time :)

Any of those links have underdriven speaker syndrome?

I used infinity kappa 60.9cs. they are 140 on ebay shipped and have the best power and frequency response without paying over 200 dollars. The rear enclosures I modified to fit two Boss 10" paper cone subwoofers. Check out teptronics.com or partsexpress.com for other good deals on decent stuff.
for the best audio quality on a budget, buy a nice head unit, a nice crossover midrange speaker, a decent-nice amp to power the midrange, a cheap subwoofer and a cheap amp for the sub. dont forget to use a cap on your amplifiers too, a cheap one is fine

I have a 1998 GT and was wondering about replacing the front dash speakers. I want to keep it as stock as possible, so I ordered a pair of Tymphany NE65W-04 2" speakers to replace the stock ones. The problem is how do I separate the original plastic housing from the original speaker? I got the screen off with no problem, but can't get the rest apart. I need the plastic housing because of the tabs on it that hold the speaker in place. Anyone have any success separating these two parts?

Thanks

If you have the infinity dash speakers you can't separate them.
I 3d printed adapters for both my '91 and '95 and reused the stock grills.

I was able to separate the pieces on my stock speakers last night, but unfortunately the new speakers are about a 1/4" too wide so they wouldn't fit back into the stock housing. So rather than hack up the new speakers what I ended up doing is just setting the new speaker into the hole in the dash and putting the stock speaker cover, with the housing still attached, over the new speaker. The speaker sat down just low enough that I was able to push the stock grille into place. Not perfect, but it worked. The stock speaker grille is in place and the speakers sound great.

Does anyone have recommendations for replacing stock door speakers on a '94 VR-4 completely stock stereo (4" opening)? I'm not necessarily looking to improve the sound--I just want something that is the right size and specs. There are no more OEM parts in the country. I know there have many threads on this topic but the recommended aftermarket speakers are no longer available either.

I just replaced my '93 3000GT's door speakers with 5 1/4 in. Hertz K 130 that I purchased from Crutchfield (www.crutchfield.com). They sound great. Crutchfield also supplied me with a free mounting kit that consisted of wiring harness adapters and plastic 5 1/2 in. to 6 1/2 in. plastic adapters that allowed me to quickly replace my original door speakers. I replaced the dash speakers with Dayton Audio RS75-4 3 in. speakers that fit perfectly in the dash where the old speakers were. I was able to just remove the grills from my original speakers and mount them by just bending the tabs over the new speakers. Because the new speakers are so heavy they just stay in the dash from their weight. I purchased the RS75-4 speakers from Parts Express (www.parts-express.com), they also sound great. I made short wiring adapters using male spade terminals of the appropiate size. I should have ordered a second set of wiring harness adapters from Crutchfield but I'm good with a soldering iron and I had the correct spade terminals.

Nat, thanks for the info. Do you have a VR-4?

No, mine is just the double overhead cam normally aspirated one with a 5-speed manual transmission. I have had it since it was new. I changed the rear speakers when I originally got the car and left the dash and door speakers original which are now falling apart. The Hertz K 130 speakers came with a pair of very small tweeters. I just through them away. You have to use 5 1/4 in. speakers because most of the 6 1/2 in speakers are too deep to fit in the 3000GT's door. Crutchfield knows which speakers will work.

I posted this in another thread, so I won't repeat everything here, but I had good success with a package of Harmony speakers, complete with door speakers, rear speakers, and wiring adapters. It was nearly 100% direct fit, except for drilling some new mounting holes in the stock plastic mounting plate for the door speakers.

More details here: New speakers
