Took a look under the side covers yesterday. Thought maybe I would pull the originals out and test them. Didn't . I can get to two of the four with a stubby phillips but would need one of those right angled ones for the rear. May try later. I also noticed that there is a pannel that can be removed under the speaker in my 87 that allows for a 5-6 inch round speaker. Anyone know if that would be a better choice for sound quality. And how do you seal the rest of the oblong hole? Third choice but not prefered would be to actually remove the window but only if I'm going to do some cutting and put 6x9's in.

My front passenger speaker is pretty much done, so Im going to do speakers sometime soon. I also have to rewire the OE fader knob (get rid of it so to speak cuse the kenwood one built in does a much better job, but Im getting static the way its wired now).
Wow--old thread resurected. Bullet--there is no sealer to cut out of the windows, they just pop in and out.

This was really the easiest method. Like I said the first time I did it, it took about 1-1/2 hours because I was going slow. I can do it now at about 1/2 hr, side.

I don't know what you would do about covering the hole for the 4x6" speaker...
But, I plan to replace my rear 4x6's in my 87 951 with some infinity 6 1/2" speakers I have. The sound quality will definately be better than using a 4x6" speaker.
