Default Rear speaker help!!!!!

How did you guys take out your factory speakers and put the new ones in?
Because i just bout 6X9'* and the mounts to my old speakers don't fit my new speakers.So did you guys buy new mounts or just put them in the way the new speakers are?
I have a 1993 Bonneville.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Your '93 should allow the speakers to fit right in.

Are you sure you aren't using some silly adapters that came with your new speakers?

go to the truck and open it. Then look for your 6X9'* and push up on it hard enough to unhook them form the clamps. I will tell you the rest later because I dont remember what wrench to use to unscrew the speaker upholster.

if they really will not fit then you can make them fit with some 1/4" wood of some sort. just trace the old speaker top onto the wood and then the new one. you should end up with a thin piece of wood that will screww into the stock location and then you mount the new speaker to the wood. i have never had to do this with a 6x9 though are you sure that is what you got?

suppastar56,

I had the same problem when I installed my Pioneer TS-A6995'* last year. I'm assuming that you mean that the black plastic bracket that holds the stock speaker in place doesn't fit your new speakers?

In my case, the Pioneers were a little too big, so all I did was take a utility knife and start carving away the opening of the bracket until it did fit. The plastic is fairly soft, so you shouldn't have a problem if you have a sturdy enough knife, I don't recommend an exacto knife since they're kinda flimsy and you'll dull the blade very fast. If you can get a proper utility knife, trimming away the excess plastic should be no problem.

Good luck!

so they are to big not to small. yes then trim away but i would use a dremel tool to do it so you have a better chance of walking away with 10 fingers and so it looks better.
