Ride: EF XR6 Manual

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

Hey guys i currently have an EF XR6 Manual that i'm selling and looking to see if i can pinch the speakers out of it to go in to my BA XR6 Turbo Ute. The speakers in the BA are standard from what i can tell, the one's in my EF are not. They're fairly decent and i'm hoping i can make the front speakers fit. They're just the standard EF size (in the door). I am fairly sure that i can not use my rear speakers anywhere in the ute but from what i have read i can use my amp in the ute, is that correct?

The speakers are kenwood not sure of the exact size but they were a straight bolt in to my EF. They cost me about $600 so i'd like to try and re use them if possible, if not well so be it... The amp is a kenwood 600W from memory, do these just wire up into the standard BA Head unit? I will be getting someone that knows what they're doing to install the job i just thought i'd get a little bit of advice whilest i'm trying to work out what fits..

thanks for any help.

BAs run 5x7s. POS speakers. lol.
get some spacers or the 5x7 hole to suit a 6" speaker should be fine.

Correct. You will need to use either a line out converter, or a smart OEM Integration unit, such as the JL Audio CLeansweep, or the RF 3Sixty
