Default Attn: Speaker size in 87 Grand National???

What speaker size can I fit into this car, can you fit 6.5" or will 5.25" only work in the doors. Also I was thinking on doing all Focal speakers and subs, probably Utopia and Audison VRX amps. What do you recommend for this car

Drugs ARE bad! 5.25" only work in those cars, they are cool cars but SUCK for audio! Darren, hope to see you soon for those new decals for our boards.

I don't know if that is necessarily true.. wasn't there a guy a couple years ago, winning every IASCA comp. with a GN? I thought it was all Kicker stuff.

I figured you'd remember easier than I would Jason.

Thanks for the stickers...crackhead As for the GN winning in IASCA, it had an extremely modified dash with USD waveguides, not normal speakers, and 15" aperiodic mounted subs. It was built by Speakerworks (Eric Holdaway came to our shop in 97, so we know the details of the car intimately) in Calif. then bought by Richard Clark who took all the credit for it although he did NOTHING except add rear 4". Definitely not Kicker amps, I forget what they were but the car was built 6 or 7 yrs before Kicker made amps. The EQs and X.over were USD modified RANE pieces and the head unit was a modified Alpine 7909. Otherwise Cutlass, GN, Monte Carlo, Regal were all brutal cars with round speakers, perfect for horns though if you had the $$$ and patience for massive EQ-ing.

Dammit! I can't remember what the amps were and it's bugging me! I've seen too many trunks I guess...
