Speaker Locations

I've had my 2007 G6 GT with the Moonsoon soundsystem for about two months now and I am aware that this system has 8 speakers but looking around the car I only see 6.... 2 front door speakers, 2 tweeters by each a pillar, and 2 shelf speakers....Where are the last 2 speakers and subwoofer?

the subwoofers are your 6x9s in the rear deck and there are a 3.5 inch pair of speakers in either the rear doors or the rear decklid as well for the sedan and should be the same for the coupe but im not sure on the convertible

Thanks.....But where in the 4 door are the rear door speakers if there aren't any speaker grilles visible? And so does that mean the speakers on the rear shelf are both subwoofers?

P.S I have a stock 2007 G6 GT with the Monsoon System

There are no speakers in the rear doors.
The Monsoon for the sedan has 2 speakers at each front door and 2 2-way speakers on the rear shelf. The makes the total of 8 speakers altogether.

Sorry to sound like a moron if i'm just not getting this, but doesn't 2 speakers in each front door and 2 in the shelf add up to six speakers?

Auto manufacturers like to count each driver as a speaker. This means the 2 2-way speakers on the rear shelf count as 4 speakers, plus the 2 in each front door for a total of 8 speaker altogether.

I disagree. I know I've only have my car for a month but if that's the case then by what your saying I apparently have 10 speekers cause there are the 2 tweeters in the front as well. Besides I'm pretty damn sure there are speakers in the rear doors that are mid bass speakers in which case to do whjat they are trying to do with them you don't need speaker grilles.

i figured out the easiest way to tell if you have the monsoon system.
when you turn on your stereo it says MONSOON if you have it. lol to bad no one figured it out sooner!
