    Hey, I was just wondering what size speakers the VE commodores are running front and rear. I was after replacements for my brothers car.

    Cheers

    What model VE? Just an Omega?

    They have several speakers in the VE's (up to 11 speaker systems depending on model) so some further clarification as to what speakers you are referring to would be good.

    Ok there are 7 speakers in the SV6:

    - Centre Dash Speaker... This speaker has a habit of distorting. I would look at replacing, or even removing it as I think it is pointless
    - 2 Front Speakers... Replace these with splits, they'd be either 5.25 or 6" but im not sure which
    - 2 Rear Speakers... I would replace these. Stock size is 5" or 5.25" but you'd be better off replacing them with 6" co-axials. There is room, just remove the plastic mounting bracket and replace with a 6mm MDF ring
    - 2 In dash tweeters... Replace these with the tweeters that come with the front splits.

    The Lumina gets the same speaker setup as the Omega I believe, which is a 6 speaker stereo. Therefore it is the same as SV6 minus centre dash speaker.

    Here it is minus centre dash speaker again:

    - 2 Front Speakers... Replace these with splits, they'd be either 5.25 or 6" but im not sure which
    - 2 Rear Speakers... I would replace these. Stock size is 5" or 5.25" but you'd be better off replacing them with 6" co-axials. There is room, just remove the plastic mounting bracket and replace with a 6mm MDF ring
    - 2 In dash tweeters... Replace these with the tweeters that come with the front splits.

    Omega, Lumina etc. get 6 speaker stereo. Berlina? SS and SV6 get 7 speaker stereo. Calais V, SS V get 11 speaker stereo. I believe normal Calais gets 11 speaker setup also.

    VE Commodore SV6
    Hey Guys,
    Ive got a VE SV6 and i want to put speakers in the parcel tray but not sure if they take
    6x9s or 8"? Ive got a set of 6x9s but i went to JB and the bloke said they take 8inches. Im not 100% so i was asking others if they've put 8" or 6x9s into their VE's.
    Thanx for the help

    they are 8" in the parcel tray, shame really, the 6x9 holes in the vx I had were handy.
    I had a look round for 8" ones to fit, but decided to go for just replacing the door speakers and putting in a sub.

    They probably don't have them for VE yet. You could get one made, would just cost a bit extra. Any particular reason you want one like that, just for space saving?

    Any reputable car audio shop would be able to do one for you. I would try and go to a specialist car audio place that only does car audio. I would stay away from Strathfield, Autobarn, JB HiFi etc. Although these places would be able to make one for you I just think a specialist store would do a better job. Although there are a few of those stores mentioned above with decent installers.

    Maybe post what state/suburb you live in and someone will be able to tell you a few reputable shops near you.
