Yes - assuming you are talking about putting a pair of speakers in the back (left/right) similar to the way the rear door speakers were originally installed.

When you are extending the wiring, you will want to make sure that you make sure the connections are done well - I would recommend cutting the existing wires to expose "fresh" copper, then soldering these together and wrapping with electrical tape.

Also, note the polarity (+/-) all the way to the new speakers - if you get this mixed up, it will have very weak bass - and you can swap the inputs to the speaker to correct.

Note: bad connections are the #1 issue for car stereo systems since the vibration and moisture are not kind to electrical circuits.

SOURCE: 1999 Audi A4 Rear Speakers

The large block is a factory amplifier - in your car (as was in mine) you had a partially-amplified system. The front speakers were driven at speaker level from the head unit, but the rears were fed a line-level signal from the head unit to the amp, which then boosted to speaker level. The harness then sent the speaker level signal to each rear speaker.

What you can do is fit your new head unit. The fronts will interface perfectly with no issues. For the rear, run new wires from the adapter harness at the back of your head unit, back to the new rear speakers, and connect them directly. Then everything will work as it should.

Typically the best way would be to remove the interior trim piece from the shelf. Then have a friend hold the MDF board up from inside the trunk. Then run either screws or bolts/nuts through from the interior all the way through the MDF. Replace interior trim piece and it should be held in tight.

Another less intrusive way would be to use a strong adhesive, such as "Liquid Nails" to secure the MDF to the bottom of the shelf. You'd need to figure a way to hold the MDF to the bottom of the shelf for quite awhile (8-24 hours) to make sure their is good adhesion.

If they fit then put them in. The only thing is, if your not using a amp they may not sound good.

How do you remove the rear speakers from a 2004 chevy impala?


Remove the rear seat. On later models remove the rear upper quarter panel by pulling down & out to disengage the retainer clips, then sliding the roof leg out from under the trim panel over the door. Detach the rear seat belts through the slot in the rear parcel shelf. Pry up the plastic clips securing the rear parcel shelf. Then lift up & out to remove it from the vehicle. Remove the speaker retaining screws or tabs. If the speaker seal has bonded with the metal shelf, hold the tabs & pry the housing away from the metal. Disconnect the electical connector & remove the speaker. Install in reverse order. Good luck!

Vt Holden Commodore stereo wiring diagram


head down to your local auto store and you will be able to pick up a wiring harness adaptor. you wire your stereo to this adaptor then you simply plug it into the wiring loom. no damage to the loom so if you ever need to reinstall the standard stereo its just an unplug and plug back in. its extremely simple and colour coded so there are no mistakes.

Need to install radio


This maybe due to the fact that all manufactured wiring harnesses installed in the corolla are standard looms, you will probably find that you do not have rear speakers installed, however the wires are located beneath the speaker grill by the parcel shelf. the standard corolla stereo only uses front speakers,but the loom has the ability to connect 4 speakers.most manufacturers always fit 1 standard loom as it is cheaper to install a full loom than make variations for different specs and models.check your stereo to see if it is used with 2 or 4 speakers. regards neil

Changing Rear Speakers in a 1996 a4.


First remove the rear seat bottom cushion (grab the front edge roughly in the center of each seat position and pull up firmly, and it'll unclip and come out). Then fold down the rear seatbacks. Now, the side bolsters for the seats (between the seatbacks and the doors) have to come off. First, pull down strongly near the bottom (there's an upward-facing hook there that clips onto a ring and holds the bottom in place). Pull down and forward and it'll come off. Then slide your hand about 75% of the way up, and pop the bolster straight forward to pop out a retaining clip. Finally, you can remove the top of it from its mount, and you'll have the bolster out. Repeat for the other side.

Go into the trunk and look up at the bottom of the rear shelf. The harness plug for the third brake light is there - unplug it.

Now, back in the rear seat area, just grab the front edge of the parcel shelf and lift upward to pop it loose, and the whole thing will slide forward. Then you can remove your speakers.

Install is the reverse of disassembly.
