HELP!!!! Speaker install question

5628 Views 12 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  TibbyGrrl
Hey, what's up everyone?

Just got my Tibby on Monday, so don't know that much about it yet. Last night I bought a Sony Xplod deck and Sony 6.5 and 6X9 speakers. It costs like $65.00 to have it intstalled! <img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle> I can do it myself, but I was wondering if anyone else has done it themselves and what you need to all take off to get to the speakers??

The door speakers - can you just take off the grill or do you have to pull away part of the whole molding on the door??

And the back speakers, I haven't looked at yet - they look too scary!! Help - how do I get to those??

Any help would be greatly appreciated! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Just a quick warning on the door speakers. They are not 6.5's, they are 6.5 "S". They are slightly LARGER than 6.5's. The Sony speakers will need brackets or spacers made up to fit right.

I have the ES Explode 6.5's and 6x9's and 12" subs. I run them through a 75Wx4 amp for the main speakers, and a 600x2 amp for the subwoofers, all of it running off the stock head unit.

The sound quality is good, but not "perfect" from some audiophiles. Also, the subs are way to big and way over powered for such a small car. I keep my sub amp cranked down to about 1/8th power, or I would vibrate the car apart at anything louder than 1/4 volume from the radio/CD.

Leave it to Random to Needlessly complicate things.
