I Have a blown Rear speaker on my 94 ETC and found a pair of Bose Gold series Rear speakers on e-bay from a 90 Deville. I wanted to know if these speaker will fit into my 94 ETC as replacement Rear speakers.
Thanks Guys

If the system in your ETC is not a Bose, the speakers will not work. The Bose speakers have amps on every speaker IIRC, so you'd have to run power to it and get the signal level right to feed it properly. If you do have the Bose system, it should work, but I'm sure someone else with more info will chime in here...

Yea both systems are bose gold series and I have the amp at the speaker I bid on 90 diville bose gold series rear speaker set. The picture appeared not to be amped but if they are interchangable I figured I could just use my amp. Does this make sense or am I setting myself up for disaster.

All of the above. Even if you modify them to adapt to your car, I would be surprised if they worked.

Just stands to reason that if your 1994 speakers blew out, (and they do) why would 4 years older speakers be a good replacement at any price? Salvage speakers are not a good buy unless they were almost new when they were removed and stored in a box away from magnetic sources, sunlight, and moisture.

Any good car audio shop can fix you up for about $100 with new rear speakers.

What exactly is wrong with the speaker? Ripped surround? Cone/Dust cover separation? Have you removed the old speaker yet?

Only thing a car audio shop could do is fix your amp if its failing. The bose speaker would have to be replaced with a bose unless you change out the whole system and rewire the whole shebang. Car audio place would be useless i think your going in the right direction with the replacement.

Thanks for the insight guys, the problem is the rear right speaker is rattling when bass hits. It is not all the time and it seems to be worse sometimes than others. It is a really loud rattle almost like something is vibrating. I have heard blown speakers before and this is what they sound like. What would it sound like if the amp was blown. Just so I know I am not heading in the worng direction.
