you have monsoon. 2 wires for mid/highs and 2 for lows. not sure why there is little sound. maybe because you are on the High wires?

i did the exact same thing, and the speakers i put weren't nowhere as good as the stock monsoon ones.I had to change the 2 wires into different holes because like you said, there's 4 when the speakers i put in had 2, so i was just messing around with it. Very very confusing :S

Any fixes or workaround so that with the 2 wires i can like in a way merge the wires and make 2 out of the 4? I think im just being confusing but oh well maybe one of you guys understands me...

yeah i understand but i think youll run into trouble because the four wires are coming out of the monsoon already so seeing that two are for mid range and two are for tweeters you really might be better off just using two of them depending on what speakers your installing.

Oh yeah that's what my uncle told me, he said that since there is 4 wires, you'll have to decide whether you want more bass or more treble since the new speakers only have 2 wires. But the stock monsoons are like 1000 times better than the new speakers i was about to install, so i stuck to my semi-blown monsoon speakers

You could go with something like this and cut the wire running to the mid tweet and tweet and hook that to your high wires and run the low wire to just the 6x9

maykevin5, I tried that and it didn't work I have barely any sound out of the tweeters and even less out of the bass.

FYI...I just came from the car audio store down the road....looking for bass and to upgrade the front stage.

Apparently you cannot just use standard speakers on this car. Pontiac used 2ohm speakers and if you buy the standard 4ohm you basically have half the output you did before. That might explain your loss of sound.

ZarkSniper, after months of online research and talking to several car audio stores, that's the most intelligent thing I've heard. Thank you. You just restarted my quest to get these things working again. Off to find 2 ohm speakers now.

No problem. He did say you can buy the speakers from about anyone.
