  3. 6 3/4 speaker in door: difficulty?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    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...

  7. Audio not going to speakers equally (cassette)

    9-5 Workshop
    I use a cassette adapter to use my mp3 in my '00 9-5, but music never plays through the left half of the speakers. I pulled the volume nob out (Balance) and twisted it to the left all the way to send the sound to the left half of the car, but it just goes silent. Also, the back speakers have...
