How to Install Speakers in a Pontiac Grand Prix

by Alibaster Smith

The speakers in your Pontiac Grand Prix are made of a paper cone mounted to a magnetic coil assembly. These speakers are sufficient for listening to music, but if you want to upgrade the speakers, you need to install high-end performance stereo equipment. The speaker system you buy will depend largely on your budget and your personal preference. Stay away from universal speakers--the Grand Prix uses speaker cages that accept only certain specific sizes that are made for the Grand Prix.

Installing Front Speakers

1

Wedge the tip of a flat-head screwdriver under the front of the speaker cover. All of the speakers in the Grand Prix use front-mounted speaker covers.

2

Pry the speaker cover off the speaker.

3

Remove the screws holding the speaker in place with a screwdriver.

4

Pull the speaker forward and unplug the speaker wire from the back of the speaker.

5

Plug the speaker connector into the back of the new speaker.

6

Mount the new speaker and secure it with retaining screws.

7

Snap the speaker cover back into place over the speaker.

Installing Rear Speakers

1

Pry up on the rear window trim panel with a flat-head screwdriver to remove it.

2

Lift up on the speaker retainer. You might need to pry it up with a flat-head screwdriver.

3

Lift up on the speaker and remove the tabs that hold the speaker in place from the opening of the rear window panel.

4

Unplug the electrical connector from the back of the speaker.

5

Remove the rear speaker assembly.

6

Plug the speaker wire connector into the new speaker and lower the new speaker assembly into the old speaker assembly mount.

7

Press the speaker retainer and rear window trim back into place.
