Mike, since there were only a few CVs with the 8 track option, and
probably very few Vegas, you will probably have to make a bracket. Go
to radio shack to get your speakers. They sell single speakers and in
the correct impedence. You need 16 ohm coils in the speakers if you
want a direct replacement. There are ways to wire it so you could
have two speakers up front, but you won't end up with a "stereo"
sound anyways, so I'd just stay with one. They are 4"x10". The are
real cheap at Radio Shack too,
