Spent the weekend with the '86 hatch. I am posting this to create a thread with details for not only my hatchback, but also for EA81 owners. Please feel free to use this thread to post details about your own stereo install. I only ask that it be specific to the EA81 genre.
The hatchback has the usual front speakers for the EA81 bodies; 4x6 on the passenger vent side, and an odd 2x3ish on the drivers side of the dash. The rear is like a 4-4.5" pair located above the rear fender area. All run via a "common ground" wiring set up.
The above said, here are some pictures of my current project. The rear speakers have been replaced with 5.25" speakers. The fronts use a 4x6 and a 3.5" (I simply did not want to fight putting a 4x6 in on the drivers side). All have new wires running to the head unit. I also installed Raamat as I went along to help improve the acoustics and sound deadening. There will be an 8" Image Dynamics sub installed in the rear.
