Default Car audio

I have looked at everything that has to do with the speakers in the ti. Still no clue on what size speakers are it the car. Looked in the forum and google. This is what i came up with for a 99 ti

Front: 5-1/4", 3-1/2"
Rear: 4"
Kick panel: 5-1/4"
Front door: 3-1/2"
Rear deck: 4"

But i dont understand that. Is there 6 or 10 speakers in the car?
So in the front there is two dif. size of speakers?
I know in the back it has the 2.... 4" speakers
In the front there is the 2.... 5-1/4?
In the doors there are 2.... 3-1/2
Is this how it is?

Off the top of my head, 2 in each door. 1 in each front footwell. 1 Behind each passenger head along the C Pillar, none in the rear deck. I haven't really looked into the audio so let me know if I've missed one.

well what i've noticed is that there's 10 speakers. I have the sport. 2- 5.25" at the foot panel, 2 - rear 4" speakers, 2 - tweeters in the rear, 2 - tweeters on the door panel, and then 2- 3.5" (??) speakers on the door panel (not to sure on the size of those tho)

it'd be 11 if you have a sub in the trunk

This your door?

That's 2 tweeters in the door, 2 mids in the door, 2 woofers in the foot wells, 2 rear deck tweeters, 2 rear deck woofers. I just swapped my rear deck tweeters/woofers for new 5.25" 2-way speakers.

If that is a ten speaker system, then I have one. My doors have the same speakers as this picture.

Yeah.. For some stupid reason car manufacturers like to consider a two-way speaker as two seperate speakers when you look at the total count... So the rear two-way speakers gets counted twice for 4 speakers in the back and 6 upfront.

The tweeters are seperate from the speakers in the rear, the same way the door speakers are. So yes, it is a 10 speaker system, not a great system, but still 10 speakers. I'm working on replacing all of my speakers as well. Thinking about replacing the door and rear deck speakers with 5.25's and better tweets, kick panel speakers with 6.5's, all powered by a seperate amp via an electronic crossover along with my Orion amp and 10" sub in a custom enclosure. If all goes well, you shouldn't be able to see any of it. I'd like it to remain stealth.

My 328 and 525 both had the two-way rear speakers... It is a plate speaker... In aftermarket car stereo it is sold as 1 speaker because it is mounted together. It confuses most people because that is not how the aftermarket would define it.
