I am looking to replace the stock front and rear speakers. I am not hooking up an amp or sub, I am just looking for good speakers to replace the dead front speakers and dying rear speakers.
If I get your basic $50 or $60 per pair speakers from Best But/Circuit City/Wherever will these "bolt" right in after taking the original speakers out OR will I have to rewire the new speakers?
Thanks!

Thanks 94 XLT.

I thought that may be the case, however, that sounded too easy.

do you have a new head unit?

if you get new speakers, the stock head unit will drive them, but not very well...

you're better off getting //any// new head unit. the sound will be clearer and more powerful, even without an amp.

I agree, just assumed you wanted to get out cheap. But yeah, with the aftermarket speakers you would get a much better sound with a good head unit You can get pretty decent speakers like at circuit city, for $ 69 to $ 89 a pair. And if your thinking new head unit, I suggest going to at least 45w per channel and up. Not alot more $$ than the lower end models.......

Thanks for the info and to answer your question, I do indeed have an aftermarket head unit.
I installed it a few months ago. It is a Kenwood AM/FM/CD head unit that I got from a fellow Bronco owner (from either this site or the MBB site or the 2 Big Broncos Mailing list....I can' recall now).
I do not recall what model Kenwood it is, but it is pretty nice (especially compare to the stock unit).

Would I be correct to assume that the process would pretty much be pull the stock speakers, then install the new ones....no need to pull the head unit again is there?

That correct, just rewire to the new speakers. You will notice a big difference now. By the way, you say you bought the head unit used, and are you sure its the speakers that are cutting out and not a problem with the head unit out put? just a thought....

Good luck :thumbup

I did not think about that, but I did have the speaker problems well before the installation of the new(used) head unit.
Thanks again!

on my front speakers, the holes in the door didn't match up with the screw holes in the speakers. i am running POLK es series 6 1/2 in the front. all you have to do is drill a small hole where you want the screw to go and then use a self tapping screw.

for the wiring, circuit city and crutchfield both sell a harness that connects to the factory wiring harness, so you don't have to splice wires. they are like $5 a piece
