Rear speakers in a Loyale Wagon?
Posted 29 June 2008 - 07:12 AM
I need some more bass and since there isn't enough room in the car for my Bazooka, I'm thinking of installing some 6x9's. Where would you install them? Rear doors, rear pillars, rear inner wheel wells, or other?

Since you have a later model gl i believe the speakers go to the rear doors but there hardly base makeing material. only bout the 6 1/2 at the biggest. lotts of people put in a sub box but its exposed to anyone who walks buy and sees it. You might be able to custom make a box and fit it into the rear tool box area.
I havent seen people put speakers in most of the places your talking about. the previous owner of mine had some installed in the rear hatch. It didnt weigh them down to much. Im fixing my interior so i havent gotten around to reinstalling the speakers but im sure itll sound great.

I had forgotten about the compact powered subwoofers, dhise. I used to have one on a car long gone. Wish I still had it now. Will be on the lookout for a cheap one.

why not just use the cargo cover to cover the sub thats what i did on my 91 loyale and i used one of the low profile subs in my brat those things are pretty good
Right now I need all the floor space for my bike, camping gear, air mattress, ect, and once hunting season gets here I'll be hiding my guns and gear under the cargo cover.
Besides, I'm not that much of an audiophile. The 6 x 9s may be enough for me (and cheaper).

I find it easier to run new wires to the fronts. There are pink 2 wire connectors at each kick panel. run you're new front speaker line to those connectors, rather than all the way into the doors.
The rear speaker harness should be under the trim plastic at the *B* pillar. hook you're new rear speakers to them.

This is what I did, if that helps. Same speakers in the front & rear. It really does sound pretty good. I'm not gonna win any competitions or anything, but it's very respectable.
The headunit WILL need an extension sleeve, and it'll be weird to get used to. They make lots of 1. DIN stuff out there.

Rockauto.com had new shocks for $20 each, which would probably work better than the 20 year old ones.
