    What size is the speaker in the rear of an 87 K5? I was looking at it and I have no clue what size it is.

    thats what I thought. Does anyone make and aftermarket replacement or do I have to put something like a 6X9 back there?

    Go to Crutchfield and look around. I seen 4x10's by Kenwood, Pioneer, and Sony. But you might want to go to 6x9's or even conponents. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    4" x 10" sounds right to me also.

    If you can find a correct sized replacment that isn't priced at a premium due to it's oddball size, that's probably the way to go.

    Don't spend a lot of money on speakers mounted WAY back there....it's never going to sound good in that position anyway, so just use them for a bit of "rear fill".....

    i have replaced several of those, and they are a 4 x 10, you will get alot better sound and have more options if you build a 3/4 inch plate and adapt for a "by nine" ....
