Default 8" to 6x9 Rear Deck Speakers

Just curious here, I've removed my rear 8" bose subs and I was looking to see if I could replace them with 6 x 9's. Would I have to cut out part of the rear deck? and is there a speaker bracket I could/should use? I just wanted to get rid of that rear deck rattle that was being caused by those speakers shaking that deck...

Do you have subs in the trunk? You will have to fab a bracket if you have 8s in the deck and want to go with 6x9s now. If you have a sub/s, just pull the 8s out and leave them out.

I do have 8's, but I also have a set of Pioneer 6x9's laying around I was gunna throw in there... but I can't fab a bracket for it so I might as well just leave them out!

Default Re: 8" to 6 x 9 rear deck speakers

What you could do is get maybe a 1/2" 6x9 speaker rings made and just install them that way.

I have the 6x9 from the factory and when they were replaced with aftermarket 6 1/2" speakers, I used some 6 1/2" speaker rings obviously it had to be cut a little bigger so it sat outside the factory holes. You can do that.

Another option would be to replace those 8"s with some aftermarket "FREE AIR" (infinite baffle) Woofers and and amp and you have yourself a nice little system

but wouldn't the speaker still be too big for the 8" hole?

I thought about that but I'm trying to avoid putting subs up there because I have a 12" in the trunk and those 8's just rattled that rear deck like crazy...

NO basically the speaker rings make a new shelf for the 6x9's, wood rings go over 8" hole (maybe make it bigger a little) and new 6x9's sit on wood ring

Ohh I see that's what I was confused about, so I just have to take off the rear deck cover thing, and put it in that way?

Basically yes, you have to remove the rear deck cover and screw in the speaker ring then crew in the speaker to the ring.

I have 6x9's and they rattle the deck too. If you have a sub why not just adjust the bass down for the regular speakers and only turn the sub up?

That's how it is right now, I have no problem with it, I was just looking for more sound variance.

Default Re: 8" to 6x9 Rear Deck Speakers

I see. Well the other side is if your only using stock wiring for those speakers you won't get much sound variance replacing the 8" subs with 6x9's unless you provide them with a different sound source.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

I actually planned to dynamat the crap out of the deck and switch to 8" shallow mount subs to keep my trunk space. Kids and all that don't allow me much room.

If you have 12s in the trunk. there would be no point to have 6x9s anyway.. When i get around to putting my 12s in i am either gonna disconnect the 6x9s or just take them out...

Just take them out...you'll never look back again. Like Hawaii has said in other posts, your sound stage should be in front of you anyway...let the a sub handle the lows...and let the front speakers sing away.

Good advice, I did notice the sub was a little louder now that it can vent in the cabin. Anyone have any luck stopping the rear deck from sounding like a wood pecker? I have the rear light raised up and pressed against the window but one day it'll be fine and the next it'll rattle again...

Default Re: 8" to 6x9 Rear Deck Speakers

make sure all of your clips are in their proper homes...you can visualize some but not all of them from inside your trunk looking up at the deck. My guess is some of those haven't found their homes. My clips are white, and you can see a portion of them sticking out through the holes designed for them. sometimes...if they are lined up properly all it takes is a light banging on the top to make them seat properly. Ensure they are lined up before you start hitting them.

If that doesn't work....dynamat would probably help..my whole car is dynamatted.

Which clips are you talking about specifically? the ones holding the rear deck lining on? and I want to dynamat it all but the prices are too much

Default Re: 8" to 6x9 Rear Deck Speakers

We need a group Dynamat deal. If I measured correctly it would take two whole car kits at least to Dynamat the entire vehicle. That's a lot of money. I know others have used other product and say it is equal quality. I need to do some research I guess. I also have to go back and bang in a few clips now and then. Maybe I broke some so that is why it still rattles.

I just got done removing the back deck mat thing, I covered the area around the brake light in cloths, and put one under the black spongey support thing. So far it took away all the rattle...

I completely agree, I would definitely do the whole car. I would buy the kit(s) to do it now, but I'd have to see my car to pay for it so...

Has anyone "re-wired" the rear speakers to be mid & hi range like the rest, with a sub in the trunk?

I removed the subs, but I'm running all the door speakers on factory wiring. I'm putting in an amp in a week and will rewire it all myself and do just that.

I see. Well the other side is if your only using stock wiring for those speakers you won't get much sound variance replacing the 8" subs with 6x9's unless you provide them with a different sound source.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

I actually planned to dynamat the crap out of the deck and switch to 8" shallow mount subs to keep my trunk space. Kids and all that don't allow me much room.
You don't even need shallow mounts.

You will need a wood ring adapter like this:

This is our stock 8in "sub" and the stock adapter ring

Like I said you don't need to go shallow, you will have plenty of room with a good 8in speaker:

Default Re: 8" to 6x9 Rear Deck Speakers

That is exactly the style setup I want right there. I only was thinking shallow mount to keep the gray cover to conceal them or build a box to house them under the deck for the specs of the speakers. Do you have rattle of the deck with your set up?

Not any more than I did when I had this box in there. You don't need a box if you get speakers rated for IB (Infinite Baffle/Free air)
