Hello taz_is_1,

Sure, it's OK as long as the new 6X9's are the same impedance as the door speakers.

Unless there are already wires and cutouts for rear shelf speakers, the installation will be pretty involved. And while I'm not sure of the Holden product, it's sister versions, Chevy Lumina and Omega, does not have such cutouts or wiring.

Wires going into the door interior for window controls, locks, and speakers will all be in a bundle and go from the vehicle frame into the door through a flexible rubber connector with grommets on both sides. You'll need to run your wires from the disconnected door speakers back through the same grommets to avoid pinching and damaging them. After you get them back into the vehicle interior, you can run them under the trim or carpet to the trunk area under the rear shelf. If you have never done such work before, I recommend you get someone who has to help you. You'll need to make an appropriately sized cutout to mount the 6X9's. And depending on the material, you may need some kind of reinforcement and/or spacers. Also, look out for anything underneath the trunk lid that may come into contact with the speakers. There's usually 2 metal rods than span the width of the trunk and run almost directly under the shelf. They will have to clear the speakers in order for the trunk to open and close properly.

It's more work than a simple speaker exchange with a good pair of aftermarket speakers. And the benefit is minimal. A really good set of 5 1/4, 6 1/2, or 6 3/4 Alpines, Bostons, or Infinitys will sound better than a mediocre set of 6X9's any day and you don't have to cut everything up to install them in most door openings.

Hope this helps.

I have a holden vt commodore, I installed the Alpine CDE-152E Head Unit and now my speakers don't work. Sound was fine before I took the stock stereo out.


Well looks like you have miswired, miscongigured or its a faulty unit. I believe you should check all your wiring, and make sure the install is as per the manual. Disconnect your speakers and check them for continuity with a meter. They will be ok Theres something you haven't done like connecting the pre-amp to the main amp or the plugs are miswired

In my 1998 vt Holden commodore, the back speakers stopped working and I thought I just needed to replace them, however the new speakers weren't working as well so I think that it might be the wiring o


If both rear speakers failed at the same time then do the following:

1) Check that the fader control on the stereo is set to power the rear speakers.

2) Check continuity of the wires to the rear by disconnecting the head unit (stereo) and testing with a multimeter.

My best guess is that the head unit is either set incorrectly or that it's output to the rear speakers has failed. It's uncommon for both rear speakers to fail at the same time, so the stereo unit is most likely at fault.

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.
