    4.5 inch speaker resides in there pretty darn sure
    you need to get a 4 inch speaker and use some fill to take care of the gaps
    or on ebay there is someone who sells an adapter plate to fit the 4.5 hole to make it a 4 inch hole

    Thanks
    Found one on Ebay from an 88 Seville. I assume it will fit the Eldorado.

    My '00 STS w/nav has 3 bose speakers in the dash. Any idea's on their size and possible cross references to other GM vehicles for the outer two tweeters.

    To get more effective bass from your Bose system, set the bass all the way up, set the midrange all the way down, and then set the treble up about halfway and crank up the volume.

    Re: Speaker Fit Guide Please Check & Ask Fitment ?s HERE ONLY!!!

    Just curious if anyone knows if its possible to replace my front 4x6 speakers with 5.25 speakers in my 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham (RWD)?

    ...I replaced front and backs a couple years ago with Polk Audio MOMO's, but im still not happy with the clarity and depth of the front 4x6's.

    Also, what will the difference be if I add in an amplifier to my speakers right now?...is it just to make them more louder or more crisp?

    Thanks,
    Tabz

    How can I tell if i have the Delco Bose Gold System. The head unit in the car is Delco Bose, but looks like it is an aftermarket one (see pic), but the rear speakers are blown. From what I am reading, you just cannot go out and buy any brand of speakers of the same size and install them. Why is that? One other question, it is not a speaker question, but does pretain to the radio system, how do you test a power antenna to see if it works before installing in your car? I found an antenna at a junk yark that was in the down position, so I figure it must still work, since most antennas that dont work are usually stuck up. Oh this is for a 92 Fleetwood FWD.

    sure
    but its a 275 watt amp
    figure 75 for the sub
    thats 200 watts per channel at 1 ohm
    so 50 watts per channel at 1 ohm
    hook up a JL speak thats 4 ohms now your only using 12.5 watts
    hook up a Infinity Kappa 2 ohm and now your only using 50 watts

    and no one makes a 1 ohm speak other than bose.
    So this would mean that Bose runs a 2 ohm sub and 1 ohm speakers?
    or is that 2 ohm related to the Kicker Free-Air use sub you suggested?

    I removed my aftermarket sub / amp a while back because the amp went bad causing the sub to go out too (when the amp powered on it caused the sub to bottom out several times then it was done before I could do anything about it).

    This thread got me thinking of replacing the factory 10" with another free-air 10" instead of using an aftermarket box type setup.
    I was looking at Crutchfield.com and they have some interesting replacements available.

    If the Bose sub is a 1 ohm then I'm looking at this one:
    Infinity 102.7w Kappa 10" 1 or 4 ohm selectable $162
    Its DVC 2 ohm internally wired to give only choices of 1 or 4 ohm
    RMS 50 - 350 watts
    Peak 1400 watts

    If it is a 2 ohm then I'm thinking about this one:
    Infinity 100.9w Kappa 10" 2 or 4 ohm selectable $190.
    Same specs as 1 ohm version.

    However they have a really good price on a Kicker Comp 07C104 $45.00
    Its a 4 ohm SVC
    RMS 50 - 150 Watts
    Peak 300 Watts

    But if the Bose stock is
    75 watts @ 1 ohm
    37.5 watts @ 2 ohm? - most likely not worth it
    18.75 watts @ 4 ohm? - def not worth it

    or if stock is
    75w @ 2 ohm
    37.5 @ 4 ohm? - not bad for only $45

    Any advice on what would be a good idea?

    well crutchfield had the spekers listed @ 5.25" all around the doors

    onlinecarstereo.com has the fronts listed @ 6.5" and the rear doors @ 5.25"

    i have 2 sets of pioneer 5.25" speakers for each door and the front door is a 6.5"

    i didnt take off the back door yet as i was rather frustrated at crutchfield.com for providing me the wrong info on my front speakers....

    can anyone confirm if the rears are 5.25" or 6.5"??
