Car speakers come in all different sizes, shape and forms. It’s important to know the size of your speakers for when you decide to upgrade your factory speakers. There’s a few ways you can find out what size your car speakers are which I’m going to share with you below.
How to find what size car speakers are in my car
Most cars usually come with different speaker sizes depending where the speaker is located within your car. The smaller speakers that are mainly used for vocals are usually found in the front section of the car either in the door or under the dash sometimes. Then you have the rear speakers which are slightly larger and powerful, which they are used to control based. Each car speaker setup is usually different depending on the car.
I would first check the manual of your car. This is the easiest and fastest way to locate what size your car speakers are. However, some cars might not have that in the manual. If the speaker sizes are not in manual I would suggest looking at a car forum. Cars are a huge market and there’s just about a forum specifically for every car model. Looking on a forum may take a little more time to find what you are looking for that the answer is out there, I promise.
Another way you can find what size speakers are in your car is using some online tools to see “what speaker fits my car”. A great tool I would suggest trying is on crutchfield.com. It’s a simple tool that tells your just about every car model speaker size that will fit in your car.
Lastly, if you’re a hand on type of guy like me I would recommend looking at the speakers in your car. Take off your door panel and inspect your speaker. This is best way to ensure what speaker sizes you have in your car and can go about choosing ones to replace them for higher quality sound.
Most Common speaker sizes for cars
There are several different sizes of car speakers but which ones are the most common in cars today? I’m sure as you know most speakers for car are either in a circular or oval shape. The 6.5 car speaker is the most common circular speaker for cars. Then you have the 6×9 car speakers which are more of an oval shape, which are 9inches long and 6 inches high. These are two most common speakers found in cars. However, there are other common speaker’s sizes which are;
- 25” speakers
- 6” speakers
- 25” speakers
- 4” x 6” speakers
- 5” x 7” speakers
- 4” x 10” speakers
You can also buy things called speaker brackets to help mount speakers if the size is incorrect. It’s very common for people to replace different car speaker size using brackets you can buy to mount different size speakers.
