Im going to order some new speakers for my doors tom. but i was thinking about it and since the speakers in the doors were starting to fall apart i was going to replace the two speakers in the back...The only problem is i cant figure out how to get to those speakers...Im pretty sure they are 6x8's but if someone can confirm that and tell me how to get to them. I heard 5x7's can fit too but? Also are they all two-way speakers and should i replace them with the same thing or get 3 or 4-way speakers? Last question...Am i going to have to rewire all the speakers?

Aftermarket speakers dont work with the stock Mach 460 headunit, you need to change that too. Something with the ohms. Normal Speakers you buy are 2 or 4, the mach 460 are 6 or 8, i forget. So you can put it new speakers, but the blown stock speakers will sound better :)

The only problem that I would see is how the speaker wiring is set up.

It may be wired to see a different ohm than you need it to.

Look into that before you buy the speakers.

If they are wired normal then yes it will work with your current set up

yea crutchfield sells a adapter for that or you can cut the plug off and splice the wires.

I am 95% sure that aftermarket speakers will work. I just dont want to come out and say yes and then for some weird change it doesnt you find me and beat me up :lol:

If you have an aftermarket Headunit, the new speakers will work, you need the adapter to bypass the mach 460 amps.

Is there an amp in the headunit or something? so i can remove those amps when i get the new speakers?

In your sony headunit there should be an amp, so when u get the adapter it will stop the stock Mach460 amps from being used so that the Sony internal amp will be used instead. The sony headunit will power the speakers.

The Mach 460's sound really good for stock, but anything aftermarket will sound way better, since it isnt made of shitty paper cones.
