    How do you measure the physical size of speakers ,the diameter of the holes in my parcel shelf are 16cm/6.25" so what would I be looking to buy,how do suppliers measure them.
    Not looking for nowt fancy ,have tried a few breakers for oem items, but no joy.

    Rear shelf speakers should be 8"

    Problem is that standard car speakers are 4ohm, Volvo S70 speakers are 8ohm which allows you to run 2 speakers per channel on the radio i.e 8 speakers 4 channels

    I couldnt find 8" speakers for love nor money that werent custom made or costed the earth. I got some speaker adaptors from Nexxia online and bought some nice JBL 6" for the parcel shelf.

    Its a bit of a pain in the S70 you have to take the rear seats out to fit them! It is doable though.

    I managed to get a pair of 8.25" pioneers into my old S70 only pain was the wiring connectors had to be changed and their was only a little bit of wire left from the original wiring,
    I had to cut/break the original platic covers off though to get them to fit,
