Installing front door speakers
The driver's door speaker in my G6 is kaput. The tweeter still works, but the 6" driver is shot. I pulled it out and tested it using a different signal source, but no sound came out. For completeness, I connected another speaker to the door wiring and got sound out, so I'm satisfied it is indeed the speaker that's shot.
The challenge here is dealing with the way the original equipment speaker is made. The speaker is integral with the speaker mount - it's all molded together. On the websites of the retailers, the aftermarket 6.5" (and 6.75") speakers are listed as being replacements. But I can't see how they'll fit into the funky shaped openings in the doors.
I suppose I could fab some mounts to adapt to the doors, but I'd rather not deal with that if I don't have to.
What have others done when installing new door speakers? Do aftermarket speakers ordinarily come with adapter mounts that fit the G6? Did you fab something to make them fit?
Thanks for your replies. Doug .
