Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

Default MY new 6x9 speakers

Picked up a set of Lightning Audio 6x9s this afternoon to replace my worn out stockers
I have to say I'm pretty happy with the sound. I'm not looking to break any db levels, I just like my AC/DC to sound good when I have it cranked.

Here'* a shot of one of them installed before I put the screen back on.



The wife helping with the install, taking apart one of the old speakers............hmm, it'* been a while since I've had a body in the trunk

Nice job on the Speaker swap!!

I can fit her and the mother in law with plenty of room for the tarps, shovel and lye

And I don't think I had the amped 6x9s, I know this is a stupid question but how would I tell?

Actually..no, no gain switch.

The amped speakers would be noticed by a Bose plate on the dash panel for Jack'* year.

92-96 had a gain slider under the HU and 97-99 had a Bose plate. This was typically found in the SSE/SSEi'* but could be had as an add on.
