From what I have checked into the front kick panel speakers were only available if a 8-track came in the car. I have two 69 SS's with this option. They are both factory setups. I am not sure of the number of 8-track setups made but I would think it was a little rare. I hope this sheds some light on your question.
69SSGA is correct. The kick panel speakers came with the 8-Track option. I've got an original car with that option. My brother had one with that option new in 1969. They are for real. The kick panel speakers only work with the 8-Track.
8-Track players are out there, but make sure you get the wire harnesses because it can get pretty ugly trying to make it work otherwise. If you need your speakers rebuilt, try Jackson Speaker Service in Michigan. He advertises in Hemmings and does an excellent job. Any more questions, e-mail me.
