Does anyone know what size speaker is in the dash of a '78 Brat? I am replacing it, but don't want to change anything else. Thanks
You might have to score a new style speaker,unless you either get a good used speaker or somehow find one somewhere in a dealer's old stock(nearly impossible).
The speaker is the same from Stage II 1977 through 1979 for all models.I have to think it stayed the same through the remaining first generation Brat (1981).
An earlier sedan,etc would be different as far as part number.As for the exact size and maybe connector difference I'm not sure.
I think it's about 2.5 x 5 inches....but it's just a guess.Good luck.Please let us know what you find to replace it with.

Sometimes this will make the speaker whine and crackle.
Also good quality speakers have a higher range so your able to turn the volume up with less disortion.

If the output transistors are looking for 4 ohms and you give them 8
they might not be too happy.
This problem will manifest itself especially at larger outputs.
I 'avent a clue as to what impedance these radios are set up for.
