I have the concert soundII option in my GN.I have a few questions regarding this system.
1. The extended range 4x6 speakers....Are they 10 Ohm?
2. The 5.25 door speakers....How many Ohms?
3. The front dash speakers....How many ohms?
4. Was there a cut-out in the door for magnet clearance,or are they thin enough to sit in the
hanger in the the pod in the lower door panel.?
5. Do th 5.25 door speakers have a plug type connector to wire them up?
6. Other than Ebay, Kirban etc. is there a place to pick up the door and dash speakers?
7. Has anybodody heard of a Delco factory deck called Symphony Sound?
Any help would would be appreciated.

Put a good set of components up front with 5.25's in the door. Don't go too big on basket size or magnet and for the rear adapt to the 6x9's. I would use a 6x9 with a X-over and add a sub or three to the trunk for bass. A nice set of 5.25's that will take some real good power and sound great are what I have... CDT HD-52's. You can go Braxials if you don't want to mount the tweet but positioning a tweet I think will be better.. I have almost the same setup in my Civic with 5.25 CDT's and 6x9 Focals in the back with one RE-12 and it covers the full range with great sound quality and has enough thunder to do the job. Want one amp to do it all? Get a MB Quart QAA1000.4 like what I have and you will have power to spare!


Go with 4 Ohm and I think all the factory speakers are more and suck!

I believe all factory speakers are 10 ohm. Dunno about a 4x6 speaker, do you mean 4x10? The door speakers plug in to the factory harness. The concert sound door speakers go into the door shell; you have to remove the entire lower door panel to access them.

Two places that have great prices for what you need are:

http://www.knukonceptz.com - wires, fuses, RCA cables
http://www.etronics.com - speakers

I bought a 4-channel amp off ebay and it was fine. I would strongly consider an aftermarket amp using line-level converters on your factory headunit. You can add a mp3 player to your system and it will remain stealth + theft detterent plus the mp3 is useful alone.

Two more websites for car stereo information that are invaluable:

http://www.the12volt.com - message board with good search

Sorry I meant 4"x10" rear speaker.I have a basement full of high end audio equipment.
After winning my 4th trophy this year in stock production classes I have decided to just revamp the stock Concert Sound II system.The reason I was asking how many ohms is because my door speakers are shot.Ive seen the 10 ohm rear and dash speakers on Ebay
but never the 5.25.I saw some on a website that were 5.25,but they were 4 ohm.Does that mean they wouldnt work or what?

i just put door speekers in my car not too long ago. sounds pretty good. ALOT of highs. my car is weird though i have delco tweeters in the dash :dunno: . once i get to the rest of the stereo i'm doing MB quart components all around. (alittle at a time naturaly). i'm doing 2 kicker SOLO L7's or L5's. i might also do infiniti kappa perfects. the subs will be 10". i already have my amp for the subs 1500 hiphonics brutis mono amp. i think i'm going to get another 550 for the interior speekers. before the compnents i'm defintaly do ing the subs. if its clear then no need for compnents.

4 Ohm speakers will work fine and sound a ton better. More Ohms the crappier they play.
