2007 Cobalt LS Audio System Upgrade
Hello forum dwellers! I have finally gotten sick and tired of my Cobalt's stock audio and have decided to upgrade. The door speakers have recently been shorting out and after searching the nets, I found this to be a common problem due to the cheap speakers from Mexico. I have the stock bare bones 07 Cobalt it is manual, no steering controls, manual windows etc.
I have decided to go with the following set-up:
JBL GTO638 6.5 3-way - for the fronts
JBL GTO938 6x9 3-way - for the backs
JL audio 4 channel 360W Class A/B Amp (70W/4Ch RMS)
Before I pull the trigger I would like to know the forums input positive and negative on my choices. Also regarding installation, what would be the best way to install this amplifier. I have researched various harnesses and I really don't care about keeping chimes and what not I really just want it to work, although with minimal cutting of wires if possible. I originally was just going to add the four speaker but I then decided to add the amp based on the paltry RMS wattage of the stock head unit. Before adding the amp I was going to use this harness:
So in summary:
1. Critique my current set-up.
2. What would be the best installation method including harness and whatever else I need, while keeping in mind I would like to not spend 100 bucks on a harness. Or perhaps I don't even need a harness.
