I have 2 pioneer 6.5's and 2 pioneer 4's. they ran about $130 at best buy. $70 for the 6.5's and $50 for the 4's but that was 2 years ago. I think they're cheaper now like $80 for both 6.5's and 4's. or if you don't mind stock ones a junk yard should sell them all for around $50.

The 6.5 speakers are at the passenger arm right? What about speakers over the rear strut?

yea the 6.5 speakers are on the rear passenger seat arm. I don't think theres speakers over the rear strut unless they're after market.

I have the liftback.. and mine doesn't have speakers there. It does have 2 wires just chilling under the cover. Could these be speaker wires? More speakers would be nice

The convertible has either 4. 6 or 8 speakers depending on how it came out of the factory.

The dash speakers are 4" in an enclosure. I put in Kicker KS-400 that sound sweet, they even have surprising mid bass for a 4".

If the car had the factory system 10 stereo in it there would be 8" subs in the doors and tweeters on the sail panels inside the rear view mirrors with an amp under the passenger seat. Along with the front dash and rear side speakers for a total of 8.

Some cars had tweeters w/o being system 10 so 6 speakers total.

The coupes and hatchbacks have a 6.5" rear speaker but when ASC chopped it to put in the convertible top they changed the rear speaker to a 5", not 5 1/4". Polk makes a nice 5" (db501) that fits without cutting any metal. Since the back side is open in the convertible it puts out less bass than the Kicker 4" I have up front. I'm thinking about trying something like a 6x8 foam baffle behind it and gluing some plexiglass or sheet metal to cover the rest of the baffle opening to see what an enclosure does for the bottom end.

Crutchfield has the 5" Polk db501 for $90 and the 4" db401 for $80 with a sale on Polk buy one get one half off so $130 with free shipping will get speakers in your hands in a few days.
