I just picked up this system for the '98 Riviera. Should sound pretty good once it is all hooked up:
Alpine 2 DIN head unit, Alpine 5 channel amp, 2 JL 10" subs in enclosure, JL 5.25" front speakers and JL 6 x 9 rear speakers.
I will get the system installed at the place I bought it but I figured I would install the speakers for now and run them off the factory deck with the factory wiring until my son can afford to get the system hooked up properly with the speakers running off the amp. (He's 17. Money isn't flowing as well as he'd like!)
Problem is, although the front 5.25" door speakers fit the hole no problem, the mounting holes don't line up with the factory setup. They are slightly smaller so I can't just screw them in place. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, what is the solution?
The rest should hopefully bolt in no problem, but I expect that I will need to purchase a PAX unit of some kind to allow the volume and heater controls to work.
Any advice or suggestions about this installation?
