Yeah they were for the Fairmont Ghias, or if you got the Premium Sound System installed, it was a basic 8 inch sub. AFAIK jaycar or some brand like that sell 8 inch subs, there ok cause they can get some of the frequencies that 6x9's miss, but your better off having 12" instead. Either way havin an 8" is better than nothing

you better off just getting a decent set of 6" speskers powed by a amp.\
i use to have a premo system in the ghia with a 8" sub and now have JL audio 6" 2way speaker in the back through a amp and they get a hell of a lot more bass then the 8" sub that once was there and also no distortion. just look at frequency response levels when buying speakers.

while JL audio are an excellent brand, they havent sold free-air subs on thier own for a few years, although as a horrendously expensive option, you can still get a pair of JL 8' freeair subs as part of thier BMW 3-series 'stealthbox"

with 6x9" wont you have to cut your parcel shelf? you you can use spacers but i recon spacers dont sound as good as a correctly fitted speaker flush with the parcel shelf.

yeh tru depends on how you set the spacers up and the actual quality of the spacer ie wooden or plastic and how it is mounted etc....whether its sealed properly and so on.

i had some 6x9 r type alpine speakers but i sold them, wasnt keen on cutting a bigger hole in parcel shelf, plus spacers are crap, i want to get the stock sized speakers which are 6 inch? i think

I had 2 x 12" subs in the parcel shelf of my EA along with some mids and tweeters, was hella cool and lots of fun to cut whopping great big holes in the metal shelf.
