Hmm not sure about the Bose setup. But I think there are 6X9s in the back(heres where I'm unsure) either they have a seperate tweeter or else it has the componet over the speaker. The fronts are 5 and 1/4 with a seperate componet mounted above the speaker, there should be two covers on the front doors, big one for speaker and smaller one for the componet. Hope that helps a little.

Hi Randallons,

Cool, your Bonnie looks just like mine, but mine is an Purple SSEi. But I have the Bose system you have.

The rear speakers are AC Delco speakers made by Bose. They are a Dual Cone 6x9 as used in other Bonnies, but in this Bose model, they run both cones off the same amplifier output. You also have a tweeter built into the speaker grill.

So theoretically, this is a 2 way speaker system, but it does sound good.

The only issue is that the Bose speakers are paper and crappy at bass after they get a bit old. You may also be noticing crackling or a weird thumping sound. Anyway, its the speakers if that happens.

It is quite ok to put new 6x9 speakers in the back. Most brands will fit and Crutchfield has a good selection, including free harnesses and installation instructions.

I have plenty of information about that Bose system if you have any problems. Its a good system, just keep an eye on the paper coned Bose 6x9'*.
