Default 1974 corvette audio system questions

My first question is what is the specs for OEM kick panel speakers.

Also, what are the specs for the In-dash speakers?

my second question is will aftermarket speakers work with a Kenwood KDC-152 stereo? This is what I have installed in my car right now. I have only two in-dash OEM speakers which work great but I'm looking for better sound quality to replace the in-dash speakers and to install in the kick panels.

The '74 C3 did not have kickpanel speakers. Only '68 & '69 cars had kickpanel speakers, and they did not have dash speakers. If you car has dash and kickpanel speakers, the system has been modified in the past. I added K/P speakers to the dash speakers in my '71 many years ago and love the improvement. But, that work needs to be done correctly. Just putting some speakers in the K/P's and wiring them with the dash speakers can be good (if done properly) and can be bad (if done poorly).
