Title: delco speaker replacement 97 monterey
Post by: Bob Chambers on March 21, 2021, 11:44:38 PM
has any one replaced the 6 delco speakers in ceiling ? they say 10 ohm, and I am having a hard time finding some 5 1/4 delco # 16163615..... maybe 8 ohm speaker with a 2ohm resistor?

Bob
The reason they used 10 ohm speakers up front is that the two right hand and the two left hand speakers are wired in parallel which makes them effectively one 5 ohm speaker.
In my 1997 I have the Pioneer stereo and had the delco speaker .I replaced the speaker with 8 ohm speakers and reused the smaller tweets which are mounted right beside each speaker as well as the original speaker covers so it looks S it always did with no adverse effects it all works well.
Hope this helps
Eric

Your only risk is overloading/blowing the output transistors if you turn the volume way up for an extended period.
