Installing into 80's model Holden Commodores VB VC VH VK & VL

 

 

With the VB/C/H/K/L Commodore your biggest problem is there's no venting between the boot & the cabin worth mentioning, which means any boot install you do wont get much bass into the cabin where you want it. All it will do is make the boot lid/number plate/rear light/fuel tank rattle and sound like shit.

First off, do you have two rear speakers OEM fitted ? They were optional, so you might not have them. 
If you do, I'd suggest mounting your 8"s in those holes on both sides, and rebuild the parcel shelf from 12-16mm thick MDF. Dont fit rear full range speakers.. After all, you dont sit in the back seat and drive :wink:
Alternatively, you could get a pair of 6"x9"s or Kenwood 7"x10", and mount them into the OEM holes, the motors will fit thru if you rebuild the parcel shelf from 12-16mm thick MDF. You can also leave the 8"s out, as 6x9/7x10 generate the same bass frequencies as an 8" or 10" woofer would.
