1992 Chevy Lumina Speaker Help!!

This question is answered

I have a 1992 Chevy Lumina Euro 2-dr Coupe without Bose. I know the dash speakers are 4x6" and I've read that the rear deck speakers are 6x9", but Crutchfield says I will need alterations to install a 6x9" into the rear. The factory speakers are held in by brackets, not screws. If I need to take pictures, let me know. Please let me know ASAP.

  • You probably can't use that mounting method.  Looks like the speakers just sit in that bracket and the bracket clamps in.

    What I think you are going to want to do is drill holes in the sheet metal above the speakers and use screws and nuts to hold them in - easier to do if you can get to the top side of the shelf (remove the speaker covers or the rear parcel shelf).

    Hope This Helps!!!

    Anyone else have suggestions?

  • The 6x9's will fit you may just have to make some modifications to the mounting brackets. Speakers will usually come with some brackets that may work just fine which means you won't need to make any modifications. Pics could help if your willing. It's hard to say that nothing will fit because all speakers are different when it comes to mounting holes. I know when I put the speakers in my doors a 6 3/4" didn't fit right so I had to make some custom "bracketry" for one screw hole because 3 of them lined up fine but one didn't. It still shouldn't be that hard to make custom brackets as long as you have a drill and some spare metal or even plastic, with something to cut it, lying around.

    This is where I put my pictures. I made it public so you should be able to see the pictures.

  • What actually holds the speakers to that mount? Are they just sitting on top of it and not screwed in?

  • Can you take off the speaker cover from inside the car and take a pic? How close are the mounting holes on the speakers to the sheet metal of the rear deck?

  • They are just sitting there. There are little arms that keep it from sliding around on bumps, but it just lifts right out. Let me go take another picture and I'll post it.

  • Okay I have to go for now but I'll be on later today and I'll check them out.

  • I can't take off the speaker cover from inside because its apart of the rear deck. The only way to access the speakers are from the inside of the trunk. There are no mounting holes besides for those brackets. New pictures are posted, just use the same link.

  • I'm just getting into car audio, so all of this is new to me. If I can use to mounting brackets until I can get a buddy (who is going to college for automotive) can help me get the rear deck off.

    Hard to explain, but I would try carefully pushing up on that panel - it might just pop off, or you might be able to figure out what screws are holding it on.  A Chilton or Haynes manual might help also.

    You might be able to use the brackets, but it's unlikely - the new speaker won't have that locating tab, might be larger depth, and might have different magnet diameter.

    You MIGHT be able to use something like rubber bands to hold the new speaker to the bracket, but if the depth is shorter, it won't seal with the rear deck (could use blocks or wood as spacers, though), and if the depth is greater, the bracket won't "lock into" the holder.

    Hope This Helps!!!

  • You may be able to use those brackets but I'd recommend against it. I'd just pull of the rear deck cover (it just snaps in place and is simple to remove) Then I would do as TigerHeli mentioned and drill some holes and use some bolts. It should take about 30 minutes for a novice like yourself. It's not that difficult to do and you wont risk harming the speakers if you just do it right the first time. I'm not trying to sound like a jerk but if you do it right the first time you should never have any problems.

  • Tip also - If the recess on the new speaker is large enough that the nut won't interfere with the speaker seating properly, run a nut up on the screw after you drill the hole.

    So you would have screw, sheet metal, nut, speaker, and nut on the bottom.

    Two advantages here - you don't have to hold the screw inside the car to prevent it from turning when you install the speakers.  And if you ever remove the speakers, you can just remove the lower nuts from the trunk side of the car.

    Hope This Helps!!!

  • I might have to have a friend help me drill out holes if the brackets won't work. Power tools and I aren't big friends :P I kinda thought that the driver from the new speakers might be too big or too small compared to the factory speakers. I'll just have to buy the speakers and figure out what I'll have to do.

    Good idea the only way you can figure out what you have to do is to buy what you want and make it work. Out of curiosity what kind of speakers do you plan to get? Also if you need any help for ideas on installation methods you can ask us but what TigerHeli mentioned should work great and it will make taking the speaker out in the future a breeze. That way if you ever sell the car you can keep your speakers and put the old ones back in.
