1987 El Camino Speaker Compatibility

My little brother recently bought a 198 El Camino. It’s still in pretty good condiion and I want to get him some speakers because the old ones are pretty shot. Anyone have any ideas what is compatible? I don’t want to mess up the electrical system.

Try the Crutchfield website. Enter the year, make, and model and the site will list the speakers that fit by location and size. According to the site, the dash speakers are 3.5", the doors are 4" (with mods), and the rears are 4x10"s.

If you just want cheap speakers that are OEM quality, try Walmart’s web site. They have items online that they don’t carry in the stores. If you have them ship your purchase to your local store for pick-up, you don’t pay any shipping costs.
