8" & it SUCKS btw, my back 3 speakers are virtually worthless. I will be replacing all with Alpine when I find someone to install them but unfortunately in Toledo its pretty hard.anyone know the stock sub size in the ex coupe. i think i might try replaceing it cuz mine sounds blown also how do i get the rear deck off or are the speaker grills removable
Uh, No, I agree with AwCrimety, I've had the car a month & on a road trip over the weekend I faded to the rear speakers & they sound like utter crap whereas the front 2 sound fair, I have the subwoofer turned down as I found right away upon purchase they just added an extra layer of mud to the mix nothing close to subsonic bass. If you look at the speakers from the trunk its obvious why, puny, anemic. Sorry I'm not a hardcore audiophile but if you take music at all seriously swapping them them out is a must, that is unless there is something wrong with the head which I tend to (hopefully) doubt.No the speakers are not that bad. They are not great but not horrible either. Unless you pump a crap ton of bass thru them.
They would probably sound better if you took all the base and installed a real sub in the truck.
I put in a speaker recommendation request to Crutchfield & they came back with these: Infinity Reference 6032si 6-3/4" shallow-mount 2-way car speakers — for 6-1/2" and 6-3/4" openings at Crutchfield.com &/or Polk Audio db651s 6-1/2" 2-way shallow-mount car speakers at Crutchfield.com . I'm not really keen on Polk speakers though I had 4 in my my last car, a 94 Tercel, & they were pretty so so & bass thin. I read at least one review of these that implied the same. Crutchfield didn't recommend a subwoofer so I don't know about that, I had this one in my cart at Best Buy:If the rear deck is like the 8th gen, you just lower seats and pull it off, it is all clips.
It shouldn't be hard to DIY!! Try Crutchfield, they have good instructions and call in support if you get in a bind.
I was planning on keeping the stock head & just swap the subwoofer as with the other speakers I wouldn't expect to have to do so much custom modding/rewiring though the stock sub is not really enclosed as I can clearly see it from the trunk.That sucks, it does take some skill or just patience to install your own speakers. Maybe you should wait for a DIY. I will be doing this but not right now, maybe a few months. I am sure someone else will do a DIY first, if not I will.
On the Subs, they need an enclosure and an amp and do not mount directly to the car so you would just have to get the measurements and see if it will fit in your trunk. That is why they will not say if it fits.
Have you done this yet? Inquiring minds want to know. Especially since an 8" free air sub goes no lower than the mids in the doors.Maybe next weekend I will do a quick and dirty tutorial to substitute a sub enclosure for the factory sub. I have everything I need except the wiring.
