Speaker Sizes ????

Postby Bertscova [OP] » January 29th 2010, 1:30am

I have a 1990 Astro shorty passenger van (full Interior) with 2 front (indash) and 4 rear. Does anyone know what size the dash speakers are? Also what size are speakers in the pillars in the rear and the rear doors? I haven't yet taken it apart.

Can't help you with the speakers, but you can buy a eight angle drill attachment that might work to re drill.

I think it's different from my '89 which had 6x9 speakers in it (right now it's got 6.5" speakers). I think the 90-94 have 5.25" speakers. An offset screw driver may help, it did me.
Rear doors or rear pillars? If rear doors, I believe 6x9s will fit. Rear pillars, I believe, are 4"

I have 6.5in infinitys in the dash of my 94 astro cl. The only problems i ran into where, the factory speaker has two metal hooks that slide under a plastic piece on the dash that cant be taken off the stocks and put on the new speakers. There are two screws on the top that holds the speakers in, the aftermarket speakers i have are a little wider so it takes a little adjusting to screw them in. I also have 3 way speakers and the factory grills wont fit over the aftermarket speakers. The only real trouble i had was with the wiring, because theres really no room to put your hands.

you can take the metal hook piece off and put it on the new speaker and you can use the factory grill and i did it without cutting on the dash.

Huh thats wierd my factory speakers clip was one solid piece of metal, the rubber surround on my infinitys was to tall and thick to fit, i guess it depends on which speaker it is. I really didnt mind about not using the dash cover since i have a dash cover.

here you can see the factory speaker bracket and screws i put on the aftermarket speaker and also you can see where i had to take a grinder and cut down the edge of the speaker frame so that lip wouldn't catch on the dash
Picture 005.jpg

Picture 004.jpg


and this is the speaker installed and where i cut down the speaker leaves just enough room to pass the edge of the dash so it'll fit flush and bolt up without drilling any holes

and finished project
