    these go under the dash by the front a pillar. they are held on by a metal bracket that fits around the bottom of the speaker. they are blown out paper and no longe work. the speaker needs to be 8 ohms according to the radio. im using the stock 8 track player
    what brand/ model should i use

    There is no such thing as a 1975 Buick Park Avenue. Is it an Electra Park Ave? They list speakers in the front doors, rear deck, and side seat panel.

    Be careful reinstalling the dash after replacing the speakers. The OEM ones are very small and on the drivers side the replacements may not fit without some fiddling with things in the area. If it's not going in, stop and reevaluate what is going on.

    There is no such thing as a 1975 "Electra Park Avenue", because the Park Avenue option package was not available on the "regular" Electra.

    Right, but the Park Avenue was a separate model from like 1991-2005?

    im having to have a bracket welded up to fit speakers as the original base was square and new speakers are round. the height is something else i have to look at

    Yes, it's an Electra. The Park Avenue name was used stand alone as a separate model from 1991-2005.

    It's a bit like people claiming to own a 1965 Buick Gran Sport
    That was a Skylark with an option package.

    Same goes for the "Park Avenue".
    The Park Avenue option package was only available on the Electra Limited 4 drs hardtop sedan:

    Here you can see that there was no separate Park Avenue model (or even series) available for 1975 [​IMG]
