    2013 Chevy Malibu LS

    Does anyone know what the speaker sizes are for a 2013 Malibu LS. It does not have the pioneer system. I traded in my 2013 CMax which had the Sony system which was surprisingly good sounding and the stock system in the Malibu *****. So I want to upgrade it really soon

    6.5" front and rear doors with mounting bracket adapters.

    Crutchfield is the best place to shop to get what accessories you need.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    since your stock radio is integrated, replacing it won't be easy. instead you should add an external amplifier with high level inputs to power the new speakers. otherwise, the upgrade will be limited by the factory amplifier.

    I plan on keeping the stock unit and running a LOC with an external processor. I looked in crutch field but it showed both 6.5 and 5.25 so I wasn't sure.

    no need for a LOC if you run an OEM processor, those will have high level inputs already. most decent amps have high level inputs.

    it showed both because you can just as easily fit a 5.25 in the same place as a 6.5. a bracket is needed anyway.

    I'll have to check my amps later. No sure actually. I have a Boston GT2300 and decided to keep my SPG555 on it and gonna run a Polk PA330 for the front stage. Not decided on the front stage yet. You were correct btw and metra was wrong. The rear doors are 6.5. It says 6x9 but that is what the pioneer system uses in the rear deck which I don't have.

    Thanks for the help man

    Re: 2013 Chevy Malibu LS

    pick up a GT-4125 so the amps match!

    if you do get an interface, Audio Control has a nice selection that provide other features. Bass correction would be handy for the sub and an EQ would be handy for the front.
