You are correct about the sound from the POS speakers in the Vibe! What "upgrade" did you already do? Please let us know how your project progresses!

Looks like you might fish a wire and put a speaker over the refrigerator and the other one could be mounted on the side of the cabinet?? If choosing in-ceiling speaker, be sure that is the right kind for the air space behind it. Acoustic suspension speakers need a specific air space to cushion them. Automobile sound places can probably give you the best advice.

Ripped out the crap unit and got a Magnadyne RV5090 w/bluetooth. A lot more power, blue tooth so that we can listen to the music on our phones, and doesnt look so damn cheap!

Amazon.com : Magnadyne RV5090 Linear Series 120 Watt AM/FM/CD/DVD In-Wall Receiver w/ Remote Control & Bluetooth Audio : Vehicle Receivers : Car Electronics

This is the crap that I took out:

RV4500 Linear Series Wall Mount | Car stereo In-Wall Receiver | RV’s

We are looking at an upgrade to the radio, surround sound, blue tooth system next year. Did you run your tv through this unit to?

Yes, stereo doesnt have HDMI, so I used RCA cables from tv to stereo. Runs through my ceiling speakers, thus my need to upgrade the tin cans attached to my ceiling...
No surround on this model stereo though..

Dropped down the speaker, peeked in through the hole where the wire comes through.... maybe an inch or two, and a wooden beam of some sort right there.... going to look at drop down 5 1/4" or 6 1/2" speakers. Anyone know where I can buy the round plastic spacer rings that will allow me to flush mount these speakers to the ceiling?

Your new speakers will come with cut out templates, and grilles to cover them.

Yes, but I don't have any space above the ceiling to fit the back side of the speaker, so I need something to space the speaker down from the ceiling.
