You spliced your speakers together?? Didn't you lose stereo by doing that?

Based on my experience with older units, and some squinting at photos of the CD and Cassette models of that year, I would say it'* possible. The AC-Delco units in general are nicely modular inside, so that you can, say, quickly swap out a balky cassette unit, put in a repaired unit and return the customer'* own stereo (at least, all of it other than the tape mechanism you just replaced). It appears from the faceplate of the '93 units that the CD player and its control buttons are on a separate subassembly that sticks out through the lower half of the faceplate; the cassette unit has all the same faceplate except for a different subassembly in the same hole. (In fact, the older non-tape stereos from the mid-'80s just stuck a filler plate across the lower hole where the cassette mechanism was supposed to go.)

So I say if you've got a CD and matching Cassette unit (e.g. both '92 or '93 units), try your luck.

Amazingly enough I didn't lose anything. Sounds good and loud.
Anyone know the best way to replace the factory 6x9'*-I know the ohm loads are different then aftermarket speakers.

The easiet way for me is to remove the top part of the rear seat and then removing the cover for the rear deck. Aftermarket speakers will be about have of the stock 6x9'*.

I don;t mean physically--I mean w/the ohm setup. I know you can't just splice in a reg set of 6x9'*--tried it already and they didn't sound right--sounded more like subs--everything came out low.
