I don't pay that much attention but all units had at least 6 speakers with CD player. 2 in lower front door panel, 2 small tweeter size in the upper door between glass and A pillar and 2 in the package tray in the back.

8 speaker system added another small speaker to the rear speakers and 200 watts. Mine has the sun and sound package which gave you the Sunroof and 8 speaker system with CD and cassette.

2 door or 4 made no difference.

My 01 only has 4 speakers with cd player, same with the '00 I had. In fact I haven't seen any Alero's with tweeters that don't have the upgraded sound system.

I think technically the Monsoons were considered 8 speaker since the rear speakers are coaxial woofer/tweeter combo, and OEMs love to make it sound as exaggerated as possible, lol.

If you peek into the trunk and the rear speakers have 4 wires going to them (vs the normal 2), that's the package.

My car has the 8 speaker option. One of the rear speakers blew and my son installed some Kicker speakers. Had a heck of a time getting them to work. After I looked at the old speakers I see there is two speakers in one. Like a coaxial speaker, but the tweeter is direct wired, not a crossover. The stock speakers for these are stupid expensive. They have 4 wires running to each speaker.

So then does the 6 speaker system have factory amps that we have to bypass?

Only Monsoon does. I have the 6 speaker and no amp factory set-up. Not factory anymore though.
