  1. Saab 9-3 (-00) Door Speakers

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    Hey! I took upon myself to upgrade the sound in my car. I changed the dash speakers without problem, but the door speakers have given me quite a headache. There were no speakers there originally, but there was a cable to connect one. However I do not get any sound coming out of my new speakers...
  2. How do I (should I?) run new speaker wire to doors?

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I guess I'll ask this question two ways: I'm upgrading all speakers and installing a new 1500W amp (4x100W RMS at 4 Ohm). I thought I'd upgrade my speaker wires to 14 ga in the process. Dash and rear shelf are easy, but I'm getting stuck with the doors. So, first I'll ask: how have others...
  3. Door speaker housing thingie: use with aftermarket speakers, or toss?

    Audio, Video, Navigation & Security
    I'm not sure the proper name for it, so I'll just call it the "door speaker housing thingie." There's a picture attached to show what I'm talking about... I'm upgrading all of my car's speakers. For the doors, is there any compelling reason not to put my new 6.5" speakers into the housing...

    Simple question that may yield some not-so-simple answers: how hard is it to put a 6 3/4" speaker in the 9-3 door (given that the stock speakers are 6 1/2"). Is it as "simple" as tapping out screw holes for the 6 3/4", or does it require removing some of the door frame? Are there other...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    A few years ago I installed an aftermarket stereo in my SAAB. It is the Kenwood KDC-BT318U. When I removed the stock stereo unit, it came with three harnesses. Using a part that was recommended or given to me (I don't remember) I was able to convert two of these harnesses into a single set of...
  6. 1997 Saab 900se door speaker replacement

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hi I have ran into some trouble fitting some Pyle 6.5 mid bass drivers into the stock speaker baffle/baskets. Has anybody ran into this problem before? I would like to keep these baffles in use or use baffles and spacers to keep the same type of setup. If possible I would like to avoid cutting...
