My '96 VS Calias had (when full stock) only 4 6" speakers all the way around. i cant remember what the Ohms/Watts were but i do remember that even the cheap 2-way speakers you can buy now had a better ohm and wattage, and also they would obviously be in better condition as well. cause my stock speakers in the back, an some in the front had their rubber lining from all around the speaker either completely destroyed and hanging by a thread, or cracked majorly in most parts..

But ur best bet is either your owner manual (which im sure you have checked) or find someones ride on this site with a vacationer and ask them...

Yeah dont even bother with the stock speakers, they are 4ohm and arround the 30w mark (and i'd say that was max) i know a lot of the VS series had splits in the front to (my exec did) but they were rubish back then in 1999 when i got the car 2 years after it was built. As some one else said, cheap after market speakers are better than the OEM ones and their quite simple to replace. 6" - 6.5" mids in the front doors 6.5" 2ways in the back stock.

Yes they will fit but no its not easy... you need to cut out the steel supports for the speakers to make them bigger, I would advise against this as im pretty sure holden make the parcel tray to a standard strength for crashes and such and I have always had issues with cutting in to any steel in my cars or the cars i have doing audio installs in. (could be my own parinoia)

You could use 6x9 box mounts which would sit on the parcel tray but they can look quite ugly if done wrong...

Cheers.
