This is the last run for the night from the test & tune before the final race of the season. We were attempting with this video to get the suspension dialed in, and used this setup to win the Big Shootout the next night.

Chevy Cobalt Sedan Speaker Replacement
Since most of the Cobalt speaker replacement videos are vertical, I decided to make a video of my own. Please keep in mind that this is basically a guideline. I am NOT responsible if you damage your car or yourself. The method I'm using has been recommended by a lot of other GM owners since most of the GM speakers are the same. Installing new speakers in a GM vehicle typically involves destroying the old speaker and using its frame to house the new speaker. This method actually works the best. I decided to install new speakers up front because the right speaker went out. I really had no initial plan to replace the speakers, but I can't deal with one being out. So I decided to replace both the front speakers with a set of Kenwood KFC-1665Ss. They're 6.5" speakers and have a tweeter unlike the stock speakers which use "wizzer" cones. I also used foam baffles to help protect the speakers and tighten up the bass. I may, later, punch a small hole in the back of the baffles if I'm not satisfied with the sound. Mainly, the baffles are to help protect the speakers. I have a small subwoofer in my trunk to control most of the bass, which sounds very decent. I may upgrade it later. With a car that has 111,000 miles, I'm really not too concerned with upgrades on the whole car itself. I just want to keep things working until the engine itself dies. The song at the end of this video is Weezer - Island In The Sun. It was just a very short test song that happened to be on my Pandora when I was testing the new speakers out. So, no copyright infringement was intended.
