That's weird, for my '95 SL I purchased Jensen CV650 6.5" Component Speakers and they fit in the factory Front & Rear openings perfectly.

Check out item # 5775319358, these are the ones I got and they sound great at a VERY reasonable price. I know they will fit, but I do not know the depth dimension.

some 6 1/2" speakers have a second set of tabs to fit in 6 3/4" openings. they are sometimes called 'oversized' or 6 1/2S speakers. check out www.crutchfield.com

You'd probably be able to get speakers in there less than 2 inches deep. Might get 2.5 in there but it might rattle against the frame. I have seen people with other vehicles mount deeper speakers by putting stand-offs behind the speakers and putting the speaker's plastic covers on the outside after cutting the stock speaker grille out of the door panel. Best thing to do is bring your stock speaker with you when you go shopping.

Crutchfield.com, which eRic mentioned, is great. Bought the radio's both both me and the g/f from there and got free adapter kits and wiring harnesses when we got them. Shipping was free for our order because both radios put it over the threshold, and they came within 2 or 3 days.

crutchfields prices are nowhere near what you can get on ebay. if i was gonna pay crutchfield's prices, i would have just gone to best buy

right now i think i am gonna go with sony xplod... all i need to know now is the depth on the front speakers, and then i'll buy em

Crutchfield's prices are high. I get everything from a good local audio shop...they guys there answer any questions i have and i get to lisetn to what i buy before i drop the cash. Very important IMO...helped me pick out lots of stuff that way. Still cheaper than Crutchfield too.

BTW i have Kicker 6.5" in my stock 6.75" holes and they work fine. They have extra tabs on the outside for the speaker to mount in the larger holes. I just brought in one of my stock speakers to compare to the new ones.

since you have the stock speakers out, could you measure the depth on them for me?

yeah, even with $10-$20 shipping, getting speakers from ebay is still cheaper than crutchfield or best buy.... sony xplod's are 70-80 i think at best buy, on ebay they are $34 + $15 shipping = $49 vs $70 and up... and i am buying 2 pairs, for the front and back.... so thats a savings of at least $40

last time I bought speakers and a CD receiver, Crutchfield's prices were identical to Best Buy and Circuit City. I got them from Crutchfield since they supplied install instructions for my Saturn along with wiring harnessess, adapters and dash mount kit. That was worth waiting a day for shipping.

Default Re: what is the size of the front & rear speakers on a 92 SC?

After looking at Crutchfield's "What fits my car?" recommendations I've came up with the following depths:

» top-mount depth 2-3/16"
» top-mount depth 1-3/4"
» top-mount depth: 1-13/16"
» top-mount depth: 1-7/8
» top-mount depth 2"
» top-mount depth: 2-1/16"
» top-mount depth: 2-5/16"
» depth 2-1/2"


As you can see... From numerous speaker brands/models Sizes range from 1-3/4" to 2-1/2" in depth...You should be safe with anything under 2 1/2"
