I think the front speakers are 3.5" with a 4" passive radiator.

Rears are 5 1/4", but you can mount a 6.5" with some modifications.

If you want better sound up front ditch the stock speakers and build a set of door panels.

88LE-

Where are your wires from speakers on the door to the rest of the car? I like the door panels, i just dont see a place to run the wires.

The wires run through the rubber boot / grommet in between the door and the car.

Crossovers are stashed underneath the dash.
