2006 pontiac g6 gtp sedan (no rear air bags)

I've been searching for a solution to my problem but have no clear answers. One of my rear speakers is blown. It's my understanding this is a 6/12 speaker with a tweeter and they are wired together and connect into the factory amp which has a built in crossover. I want to replace this with straight 6x9's and use the existing factory amp. From what I've read this will require modification of the 6x9 to some extent and rather than ruin a perfectly good set of 6x9's because I lack the experience I was hoping someone who has done the modification could help me out. First question is what kind of speaker should I get 3 way 2 way? Any specific speaker? Second what is involved with the modification? I tried to use crutchfield but they were no help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TY

well if it call for a 6.5 get a 6.5 speaker i think the are a better than a 6x9 i wont run them u

u can look online or call a gm dealer for a factory replacement or any 6.5 2,3,4 way will work with no modding use crutch or sonic what fits my guide

u can mod the rear deck but i would get 2 sets of 6.5 components and a amp to run them and do an fiberglass deck but i will need to cut some metal

The rears are 6x9's. You can look at them in the trunk and it will be obvious they are not 6.5's.

The mod you are talking about is taking a 2 way speaker and seperating either the tweeter or woofer leads from the speaker terminal. You do this because the monsoon system uses 4 wires to each speaker, one set is the (+) and (-) for the woofer, the other set for the tweeter.

@Dmanj...thank you. I see you have already changed the factory speakers in your ride BTW looks sweet. I wish I had the time to do it. So with the JL...speakers did you lose the high's? do you have any pics of the wiring? thank you

Thanks. I changed out everything in my car. The headunit, wiring and all speakers were replaced as well I added a 4 channel amp to power them. Because of that I did not lose anything.

However, I also did not have the monsoon system, so I never had to worry about losing the highs, since there were only 2 wires running to each speaker.

No pictures of the wiring other than what was in the thread. It's much simpler not having the monsoon system. Wiring was direct from my aftermarket amp to each speaker, with no 4 wire bs that the monsoon system has.
