Re speakers for 164
I have a 95 and found the 4 speakers had "shredded" surrounds. Expected from origional 19 year old units.
I bought Pioneer 6.5 (front) and 9.5 (rear) units. The boxes had cutout templates on top which I used to measure against the stock mounting holes, not wanting to drill the front plastic frames or rear ones. The rear speakers dropped right in and the stock mounting screws lines up. The front ones did as well but the fram eof the speakers do not seal against the plastic mount as readily as the stock speakers. Not a big deal. I now find (one week later) that my f/l speakers is scratchy, as is the tweeter. I think it;s an amp issue but I cannot find any reference to an external amp. I have the factory stereo cassette with 12 pack changer control and touch screen. Does thi shave an external amp somewhere? if so, I can sheck that and if not, I can check the head unit for corroded contacts or fried resistors, etc. Kind of want to keep origional as the 12 pack takes care of the CD and MP3 issue.
