I went to soundtrack and cartoys today looking for speakers and they both showed me 6.5" Alpine S-series for up front and 3 way Type-S for the 6 x 9s. Are these speakers any good?

Anyway, Cartoys quoted almost $380 with installation. Soundtrack has a big sale and said they would do it for under $200. BTW, Soundtrack's charging $60/pair for the 6.5" and $70/pair for the 6 x 9s until Sunday. Any problems using either place, other than the price difference?

The other thing: The guy at CarToys said I would have to take out the rear seat and do all kinds of stuff to get to the rear speakers. Is this true? Is it easy enough to install myself or should I put down the cash?

I've got a 91 L Coupe with a Kenwood Excelon face. Thanks for the help.

I don't know how different the 91 coupes are from the 95's, but all you have to do to get to the rear speakers is pop the covers off carefully. At least that's how mine are.

Yours must have been broken before you bought the car then. On the Coupes, the speaker grill is non removable. It is held onto the deck via metal clips that are attached to plastic pins. When you try and remove the grill from the deck, you end up breaking the plastic clips. On the Coupe, you need to remove the entire rear deck to get to the rear speakers. I have confirmed this for nearly all years. I checked this on my old 91, my 93, and my 95 Coupes. They are all the same way. The Sedan's rear grill is removeable however.

I guess this means I should pay for install?

One other thing: I pulled up the cover in the trunk and it looked like there was a speaker facing down right behind the back seat... is that a speaker?

Hmmm, yeah, you have to remove the whole deck. We were doing a suspension upgrade a few weeks ago and one of my friends read in the book that you have to remove the to rear speakers so before I could tell him he had broken the speaker grills :(. What can I do about this.
