Default Door speakers

My son says the 2000 Saturn SL we bought him in April has one dead speaker in the door, and the other door's speaker is fuzzy. I would like to get him speakers for Christmas but I really don't want to buy original equipment. Any suggestions on economically priced speakers?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Door speakers

I got Kenwood KFC-1662S speakers in my front doors and rear package tray. Cost $50 at Best Buy. You get two in the package.

Keep in mind that when you want speakers, you want 6 3/4" speakers (even though the Kenwoods I have are supposedly for 6 1/2" speakers, they fit just fine, no problems ). Not to mention you might want to take the grids off the speakers and use the grid on your door panel and package tray (should you wish to do the rear speakers in the future).

Wiring diagram from Ruley73:

Tan, Left Front (+)..........Light Green, Right Front (+)
Grey, Left Front (-).........Dark Green, Right Front (-)

Brown, Left Rear (+)........Dark Blue, Right Rear (+)
Yellow, Left Rear (-)........Light Blue, Right Rear (-)

6 3/4 is the "right" size, but many 6 1/2" speakers are designed to fit, or include adapters.

Just food for thought, regardless of the price point you set as "economical". Give him cash or a gift certificate towards the speakers. That way you can't get him the wrong ones.
