    The rear speakers are 4x10's but here's what I suggest you do. Buy some 6x9's (they sound a lot better) and use the templates they give you to cut holes into the sides near the back seat. There is no metal to cut through, just a layer of foam and cardboard. When you cut through it, the speaker wires that lead to the rear speaker are right there. You can cut them and connect them to the 6x9's. This works VERY well and the sound is so much cleaner than putting 4x10's way in the back where you can barely hear them.

    I have an 85 Jimmy
    The rear speakers are 6x9s
    I think they did a good job on the Jimmy, but the guy who designed the sound system should be shot.
    First, be careful with the plastic covers... The speaker's not held on my screws or nuts & bolts, it's a straight plastic pole with a self-tapping nut.
    Second, to anybody who has an aftermarket stereo with stock speakers, I'd recommend replacing the 6x9s.. For some odd reason GM decided that they should use 10 ohm speakers.
