Dodge/Plymouth/Chrysler Extended K-Car (EEK) Stereos and Speakers

One of the list members asked if the factory stereo out of a JA body Breeze/Stratus will mount into an EEK.

One of the mounting holes/locator pins is in the wrong place.  The cloud cars have this on the side, rather than the bottom.  The radios are identical except for that (which is actually a different faceplate, since that's all one piece).  It will work just fine, and looks the same when installed (with the bezel covering the screws), but it won't fit in any other Mopar but another JA body.

While on the subject of good stereo speakers David Brooks asked: "Could someone tell me what size speakers I need (front door and rear package shelf) for a '92 Shadow?"   

Damen Civiello answered: The Shadow (and most EEKs) used a 5 1/4" up front in the doors and a 5x7 in the back.  There isn't usually a concern over mounting depth but don't go too deep up front.  Stereo places can help you or check www.crutchfield.com for sizing info. Now this is only if you want to replace the stock speakers. You can modify mounting locations to use larger speakers or better shaped (better sounding) speakers but this will require some custom work.
