I dont' think it was answered yet, but..has anyone measured or knows the stock mounting depth?

Did I leave anything else out?

oh wait.. the GTS does not have the steering column pop up.



The GT-S has the auto tilt away steering column as well. So does the GT. Unsure about the ST.

FWIW, I don't have the exact measurement :doh: but here's my replacement next to the stocker

Dayton DC200-8 on left, stocker on right

The Dayton speaker shown has a mounting depth of 3.75 inches, and the plastic had to be cut to fit it.

So stock is maybe 3-3.5 inches :shrug:

Hey Daveryan does the stock speaker have any specs written on it like impedance, or even sensitivity? Also, am I to understand that even though the amp is powering those Subs that the amp has no internal crossover and all the speakers are pretty much being given a full range of frequencies?

My stock subs are at my dad's house - far away. I always assumed the stock amp did have internal crossovers - at least for the subs. I think the F/R mids and tweeters have external, passive crossovers, since all 8 of those drivers work when you use the hidden non-system 10 harness, which only has 4 connections - front L/R and rear L/R. I can verify the stock subs do not have any passive crossovers mounted next to, or on them. You shouldn't need to add a crossover if you are just replacing the subs. If you replace the amp however...

Anyway, if you're unsure about high/mids in the stock subs, just play some appropriate material and stick your ear down there!

Ok I will. But sometimes it's hard to tell what's coming from where.

I'm replacing mine with the newer Kicker SSMB8 (which i got for $94 on Froogle). I've got the stockers sitting on the table here and the mouting depth is just a hair under three inches. My new Kicker SSMB8s are just under 2.25 inches...though the magnet is much larger in diameter. I am still installing them, but I bought a 360W 2 channel amp and 4 gauge wiring kit as well along with a bunch of Dynamat Xtreme. I also got a component set of 4" and 3/4" tweaters from MB Quart and a new Pioneer head unit that puts out 27 wats RMS (60 watts peak). Hopefully this wil be a good update to the 15 year old sound. :-)

How did the Kicker SSMB8 fit. Did you have to modify anything? wires?

Like the old RMB8 said earlier, you have to cut out the plastic from the speaker holder in the center which isn't a big deal. A couple minutes with a dremmel and it is done. I mounted them last night in the car and I had to take a dremmel with a cutting wheel to the bottom metal piece just below the speaker on the door. I took pictures but dont have them loaded to my site yet. It was minimal amount of cutting and isn't structural to the door at all.

As far as wiring goes, I guess you could use the old wiring, but I'm not. if you are going with speakers that require as much power as the SSMB8's, you should proably use an amp...which means you wont be using any of the stock wiring harness for the stereo. So i ran a new wire to the door speakers which is a thicker wire than stock. I actually cut out all the wires in the car that go from the cd player to the stock amp....they are useless. There are many wires there and none are needed anymore. I do plan to use the stock wiring harnes for the tweaters and the rear speakers, but the rest I'm going to re-do because it will be much simpler. I guess that is easier for me to say because I have my whole car gutted right now, minus the heaadliner and dashboard, because I'm also putting down Dynamat on the doors/trunk to hopefully make the car a bit quieter inside. :-)

I haven't powered them up yet because I only have one door installed, but I'm not discouraged at all at the amount of work to install these. Compared to the engine bay on alltracs, this was easy ;-)

Goldfish,

what amp are you using? Are you going to run them in 2ohm or 4ohm?

I'm using a cheap Jensen 360W 2 channel amp - 4 ohm. I dont ever expect to push these speakers anywhere near their max point so I'm not going with an expensive amp. Plus when I was shopping this was one of the lighter weight ones (under 10 lbs) and small enough to fit under the passenger seat. It also had good reviews.

I got the new CD player and front MB Quart component set installed last night and it sounds amazing. I've got the amp wired up and I'm hoping to power it up for the first time tonight.

I got it all back together last weekend and it sounds great. I'm no longer using the rear speakers at all and it sounds just fine. The rear speaker boxes are pretty heavy - about 5lbs each. I cut out all the old wiring except where it goes into the doors. I really like the new SSMB8s. Here is a small writeup and a few pics of what I did:
