Back Speakers

Can anyone give me some detailed info on how to put back speakers in an EA. There is no wiring in the back at all. Any help is appreciated...

Cheers

You'll need to get 6" speakers and run your own wiring down the back if there isn't some there already.

I ran my speaker cables over to the drivers side... under the carpet near the edge and then up the side of the back seat into the boot

Dont all EA's already come with the speaker wires there just look under the parcel shelf in the boot and there should be some wires with white connectors on them on each side for each hole. Our EA S has no back speakers but has the wires there just in case. it came out from factory like dat.

I dont think it was standard. Mine has the holes on the parcel shelf but there are no wires anywhere in the boot that are used for speakers.

Im also not sure how to get the current radio out. (duh) There are weird looking screws and I havent seen a tool that would fit them.

You need to get the security screwdriver bits from Dick Smith to take the ones for the radio out. Make sure you get the star looking ones with the holes in it.

You can use these same bits for the screws holding on the door trims as well, so it's worth the money

I dont think the GL's had speaker wiring going to the boot of the sedans, I have a series 2 EA sedan and there are no extra wires for rear speakers on the main wiring harness plug that connects to the stereo. Series 2 EA station wagons have the wiring there already tho

No the GL has no rear speaker wiring.
So yes you will have to run your own, and check out this thread for a little more help.

Ive just fitted a pair of Blaupunkt 6x9's in the rear of my GL. All I did was fold the rear seats down, remove the locking pegs (3) out of the parcel shelf, lift the shelf up enough to feed some wire from the speaker holes ( which I cut out of the material ). Then run the wire down the side of the rear seat, remove both front and rear kick plates ( plastic plate at base of door opening ) and remove the kick panels ( also uses 2 locking pegs ) and run the wire up to the front of the car, the re-install the kick plates etc which will conceal all the wiring.
Then remove the Head unit with a torx head screwdriver. Wire your speakers up ( I disconnected the front ones as it sounded shit with all 4 running of the factory channel )

Follow that and you will have a professional looking job which shouldnt take more than an hour

P.S the factory speakers use a common earth wire, you will see 2 black wires coming from the back of the head unit..both running to the connector plug....one of them will turn into a thick black wire..this is the main earth - leave it alone...the other you will see remains skinny but loops around to connect to both speaker seperately ( hard to explain ) you can wire both of your new speakers earth ( neg. ) wires to this single black wire, the positives are brown and green from memory

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

I recently installed a sony head unit and kenwood 6x9's.. the head unit was very simple (after purchasing a screw driver for those danG tamper proof screws) after that i cut the holes in the rear shelf large enough to accomodate the 6x9's (flush fit) using a jig saw from bottom up.. mounted speakers.. ran the wiring down the left hand side of the car and then under the rear seat and up to the speakers.. very tidy job.. and no more than a few hours work

Regards Jake
