Rear speaker replacements

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a 2000 986 with the DSP sound system which includes the rear speakers. I'm looking at replacing the Nokia speakers with better speakers as a first step in improving audio. Has anyone followed this path? If so, what speakers have you used and with what results? The factory Nokia's are ~3 inches and all of the replacement candidates I have seen are 3.5 inches. Looks like they can be squeezed in there with a minimal amount of mod to the enclosure. Any other options out there?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I am not the stereo guy.

The local guys remove the four 3 inch speakers then use brackets made of plastic for two 3 1/2 inch speakers. I think the problem is finding quality 3 inch speakers that fit, so they use a pair of 3 1/2 inch. I do not remember if you can get a pair of 3 1/2 inch speaker into one side.

Harvey Peck sells a rear speaker kit. He uses four speakers, but I do not know the diameter. People have said his speaker kit sounds good. Second pic is Peck's speakers, but he makes his own mounting bracket
