Hi All,

Been reading through the various bits and pieces about speakers on the forums, but still not sure on best way forwards.

I've got a '97 GT with the standard 4 speaker setup. Front two speakers blown (the previous owner clearly had a sub and presumably large amp and managed to blow both). I'm looking for the simplest replacement options, with the least messing around.

I have found a pair of OEM that I could order, but seems a shame to waste the opportunity to upgrade a little. However can anybody recommend the most hassle free new pair I could install? Not looking for amazing quality sound or volume, priority is a simple install (i.e. shallow speaker depth so need to drill out bits of door, and nothing too powerful requiring a new amp..). Also, understand I would need an adapter piece (6-5" - 8" to fit the space), and a couple of adapters for the wires. Are these adapters standard on all Toyotas from the same era? I can't seem to find anything specifically mentioning the gen 6 Celica.

Any advice much appreciated!

I installed some JBL GTO separates -6.5 with the tweeter in the stock location up high. I made some adapter plates out of thin wood. Crossovers next to the woofers and it sounds very good.

I also put some dynamat in the doors in a few locations. No need to completely coat it - a little makes a difference.

Those particular speakers are known for exceptionally clean midrange while they are a bit weak on the high end. I boost the treble a touch on my HU and let the mids sing!

94 GT, Alpine HD149BT, PDX F4, PDX M12, JBL GTO 6.5 all around, (2) Sundown SA8V2@34Hz, Kenwood TM-281, Yaesu FTM-100DR, Xantrex ProWatt 1000SW, PowerBastards Fitzall 220+ alternator, rear-view cam, dashcam, Rigid Dually D2 set, Rigid SAE fog lights, Autopage alarm with DEI trunk popper installed.
