Title says it all, what are the speaker sizes in a volkswagen golf coupe from 1991?

share|improve this question

I have not been able to find any good documentation online for the speaker sizes of a VW Polo. Your best bet is to do it the old fashioned way - take out the speakers and measure them. If you're going to replace the speakers then you have to take them out eventually anyways. There is a good article on eHow for measuring car speakers for replacement.

There are currently no speakers in the car. However going by standards I think I have pinpointed the actual sizes. I'll report back here once I've fitted new speakers and know for sure. – Mats Nov 26 '12 at 1:56
If there are no speakers won't you have to cut the holes anyway? So pick what fit's best. – Sponge Bob Jan 8 '13 at 21:22
There were precut holes were once the speakers were. I measured those and bought me some cheap speakers in a standard size which was the closest to my measurements. I'll post my findings in a new answer, so maybe one day it might help someone else. – Mats Jan 29 '13 at 15:32

After measuring the speakerbays I bought some cheap speakers in standard size closest to my measurements, which fit perfectly. The front (dash) speakers are 3-1/2" diameter, the rear (trunk) speakers are 6"x4". I hope this helps someone else one day!
