. IIRC, my '79 Camaro's factory setup was one speaker in the center of the top of the dash and another speaker on the rear deck. Two speakers on the rear deck would indicate a custom installation. My memory may be faulty and there may be more difference between a Firebird and a Camaro than I think there is.
. There may have been speakers mounted in the doors, but I don't remember seeing that on '79 Firebird/Camaro/TransAms. Remove the liner and look toward the front and near the floor. Any mounting holes should be conspicuous.

The Chiltons (or other) manual you're using to guide your work on the car should indicate where speakers were normally mounted. If there was a standard location; that's getting just far enough back that the original assumption may have been monophonic.
