I have a 89 volvo 240 sedan i am looking to put in speakers in the back deck many sites say 6x9 fits but it seems that the info i find with people and volvos like a guy said he chose 5.25 because he didnt want to remove the back headrests. i even looked in the back and there isnt much room to fit a 6x9 , also there is a speaker hole right in the middle it looks more like a 4x10 but i could not find anything on any site about it. so what would you suggest?

Most car audio is designed to push 4 ohm speakers not 8. Any chance the stock radio was attached to an amp that is not powering up with the new deck. Usually you will have a remote turn on wire that signals any amps to fire up when the deck does.
You'll either double or half the ohm load if you do this. If you double the ohm load, you'll half the volume. If you half the ohm load, unless your receiver is rated for that load (very unlikely), you'll overdrive the amp and blow it.
Look on the back of the receiver. It will tell you what ohm load it's rated for. Usually, it's 8 ohms. If you are using 8 ohm speakers (virtually all home speakers), putting more than one speaker on a channel will kill the poor thing.
If you want more speakers, add another amp, or get a receiver capable of running the number of speakers you want.
The product you're inquiring about is not showing in your post. Name the make and model first, then we'll look for the manual. Then (maybe) find a solution. You might find it at the manufacturer's support site or these guys...

This is sometimes an indication that the speakers are loading the receiver amplifier. Take the speaker connections out one by one (making sure you mark these with some stickers so that you know where to connect back) . Each time check if it moves out of standby. If not put wire back on.
The most likely answer is no. Unless the power transformer is of the multi tap type and has a voltage selector window on the back panel... Most speakers today have an impedance of 8 ohms. The impedance is all you need to worry about when matching speakers. You can fit 8 ohm speakers to a 4 ohm system, but you cannot fit 4 ohm speakers to an 8 ohm system. It would overload your oputput stages and cause them to fail. It's best to match 4 ohm with 4 ohm, 8 ohm with 8 ohms.etc.
Yes you can use the speaker output in conjuction with the rca pre-outs...but depending on the wattage of the amp, there may be a big difference between the loudness of the front speakers over the rear speakers. If you have a 4 channel amp you can put the rear speakers on the amp also and lower the input gain for the rear speaker. Or if you have a 2 channel amp, you could use a passive crossover to filter out some of the bass to the rear speakers since they are smaller, this would help prevent over-driving them...as it is normally too much bass that distorts and blows a speaker. I'm not sure what you are asking about the hi-rear preouts vs the mid front pre-outs. If you decide to use the amp for the fronts you should be able to connect the amp from the front preouts of the deck. Hope this helps.
It depends on if you want it to be able to play really loud and really clear. The deck will probably drive them pretty good on its own but when you really crank on some head decks the sound can start distortring. Wheres the sub it the package? Get a less powerfull, 50 Watt X4, amp and get a decent sub with a mono amp or they have all in one 4.1 channel amps. To drive the whole system and keep it easy. Have fun
direct to front s out from sterio have to match up know were your old ones go a wire harness for your car says all labeled nice were to go weird colers in such ok get that match it up to back of head unit wireing it direct ok postive on + negitive on - ok its notto hard if u dont know colers u call deler they tell u the coler codes for your car write it down ok
I have the same system, the ports for surround speakers only seem to work with the actual surround speakers I bought mine with. I did try to change them but found a sound issue. Looking to buy a new 5 cd changer as mine was damaged during our recent move. Looking to buy model number DX-Z9400M
