    Speakers in 1995 Chevy Silverado

    Hey I'm 15 and I am new to all the speakers and stuff but I was talking to a friend and he said that he had a pair of either 5" or 6" kickers that he would let me get a hold of and then he had some 6x9" speakers. These are going in a 1995 Chevy Silverado and I know the size for the rear speakers are 4x6" but i was wondering if the there was anyway that the 4x6" could be switched out with 6x9" that I have. Or is wasting my time to even try to hook those up and should i just sell them and get the proper 4x6" speakers. Tell me what you think.

    The 6x9 will not fit in the stock locations you have to move them, or try to build a way for them to fit in the rear behind the panels, they will not fit in any way up front, you will have to use the 4x6 replacements. You could get some 6x9 boxes and put them under the seat or if you have the ext cab model under the rear seat.

    Ok this is what I have done and what I am running, I had for long time in the 10 years have had my truck ran stock speakers, but had to replace the front ones, they got dried out and busted, so I replaced them with some 4 way sony explods from walmart, cost me about 40 bucks for the pair they actually sound pretty good, still have stock rear only because haven't tried to take them out, its all running a jvc head unit, into a 10 band I think eq then into a pioneer 760 watt amp, with a fared cap, pushing two power akoustic fubar 12's they are rated at 1800 watt max, and run at about 800 rms, and thump pretty good, the subs are under my back seat, if you put subs in under your back seat you will have to remove the stock jack and jack box, unless you find a good box to hold a single 10 or 12.

    If you want a aftermarket unit, look around and see if you can find the dash kit, it replaces the part in the dash where the two middle vents are, you keep the vents but has a place to hold a head unit, they are color matched, next to keep it easy and from having to cut wires, there is a wire connector should be able to find any where, walmart will have it, it plugs into the stock wire connectors and then wire the head unit to those wires, to access the stock wires and stock unit, it will be right above the steering column, will be a thin silver box, unhook the connectors and plug the aftermarket kit into will have to reach them under the dash to the head unit, or run longer wires to it. I will see if I can find some links to what I am talking about later.

    I don't have too much money to be doing very much right now because I am still paying for the truck and i have no actual job so i will probably use what I have which is the 6x9 and ill just put them in boxes I would love to be able to do a setup like your but I don't have the money anyways I will be getting a head unit soon but they are all Kicker Coaxial speakers with tweeters built in so ill use those.I have 2 6" rounds and two 6x9" ovals which i will be putting in boxes like i said do you have any ideas when it comes to head units?

    Well like the old saying you pay for what you get. Just look at the features each head unit has, and see if thats what you want it to do. I have had 2 jvc head units and they have been great sound good, and both had remotes which I like seeing your head unit will be in the middle of the dash and makes it kinda hard to reach, if your short handed. I never have been a fan of sony explod stuff, but its cheap. Most head units now have built in HD radio, bluetooth, and some even have satillite, but those units you pay for. I always try to find the one that has the most RMS power output for each speaker, if you see one and it says something like 80wattsx4 that means its 20 watts per speaker channel, or may list the watts for each speaker channel then just add those together will get total watts, more watts louder it will be.

    On my 93 Ext/Cab truck my rear speaker wires run under the drivers door foot panel what you might do it cut the wires so you can run new wire to your 6x9 box speakers now you can place the boxes over where the old speakers are just use sheet metal screws and bolt them on then place speakers in boxes. Look on Ebay for cheap 4x6 speakers im sure you can find some dirt cheap.

    This one way of doing it real cheap and use what you have.
    Good luck! GMC
    PS-I bought a used Alpine head unit on Ebay you might find one there cheap as well just trying to save you money. When you but a stereo try to get one with I-Pod connection and as many RCA jacks in the back of stereo. Might consider replacing all your water hoses and stat before you get a stereo you wouldn't want to mess up your engine and have a truck note as well.
