Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

Want to install after market speakers in 06 Chevy Cobalt...

So, I like my music loud and need to replace my factory speakers. That's the easy part. I get the general concept of taking off the door panel and getting to the speaker BUT here are my questions:

1) do I just pry around the entire panel until it comes off?
2) if there are door air bags, will they be damaged?
3) will it mess up any another wiring if I simply swap the speaker for a similar one?
and finally
4) will I have to replace or upgrade fuses as a result of the new speakers?

I really hope someone has some answers or advice. I'd really like to know what I'm getting myself into before I go prying off door panels.
Thanks

They make a tool V-shaped that should be used for prying around the door panel..door airbags should not be triggered unless wiring for them is shorted, replacing speakers should not mess up any other wiring , fuses should be fine as are..

Stereo crackles


A little more detail. Do you mean speakers are crackling. Most likely blown the factory speakers. These are very cheaply made. And if you play music loud often they will blow easy. Is it completely stock system. If you relaced your stereo with an after market it may be the wrong ohms for the speakers or to much power and you need better quality speakes. If not coming in clearly make sure your antenna is tight and your wire harness are are connected securely. Let me know more details. Do you have infinity sound or not. Any after market components. Or completely stock.

2008 Cobalt - Front speakers not working and no audible turn signal. Both stopped working at the same time.


In my 2008 Cobalt, the front speaker in the driver door went inoperative - no turn signal noise, no warning chimes for door open with key in, seatbelt chime, low fuel chime, and of course, no music. All of those sounds come through the speaker. I switched the driver door speaker and the passenger door speaker, and now I have all of those noises back.

If you have manual roll down windows, you'll have to buy a special tool to remove a little clip that's behind the roller handle. This tool was included in a kit for about $7 that I bought at Harbor Frieght, but you might be able to find the kit at other auto parts stores. Google "removing window crank" and you should be able to locate a video that shows how to get it off.

Anyway, I switched the speakers and now we just don't have music coming out of the passenger door speaker, but at least we have all of the warning chimes and turn signal clicking noise again.

The dealer wanted almost $200 for a new speaker and to replace it (labor). Rediculous.

Front two speakers just stopped working.


I have an 05 Cobalt that just experienced the same problem. I had my door panels off and my speakers appear to be dead.

If you have a multimeter, you can pull the speaker out and test to see if you get resistance across the two terminals. It should say on the speaker what the resistance should be (most likely 4 ohms). If you get no reading, you most likely will have to replace the speaker.

You could also test for AC voltage on the speaker wires. When the stereo is on, and set to a reasonably loud value, you should get a few volts. If you don't get any reading at the door, it may be either the wiring or the stereo. To determine which it is, you will have to take readings at the stereo output.

Hope this helps.

06 cobalt stock system hook up


I cant really assist in this matter but I can let you know that I have a system in my 2006 Chevy Cobalt and that I have an aftermarket cd player installed. I had to pay $130 for a special adapter for it to be wired into the system because GM's newest idea of installing the stereo and airbags on the same wire scheme, is kind of a dumb idea.
