Speakers are easy enough to do. Simply run 2 wires from your stereo to the position you want the speakers and bingo.
Most stereos have 4 speaker output so make sure you run front left to front left, etc etc

Its pretty easy to use 6,5" sets ive got a 6,5" pioneer set with separate tweeters. The only problem using these sets are that the window can hit the speakers magnet. To avoid that from happening, fill the speaker hole in the doorcard, using fibre glass. Then cut a hole with a tight fit for the speaker. Then mount the spaekers in the doorcard, and Tadaa... good enough clearing  :D

Also if you choose an expensive component set, use a good amp to power them. Only way to get it better than this is more speakers  8)

best way to fit larger door speakers is to make some spacers out of mdf, then screw the spacer to the door and screw the speaker to the mdf. this will give you a good solid mount for the speaker and thus give you a much better,crisper,deeper sound 8)  :wink:

I've just fitted Mutant 3 way 6x9's in the rear parcel shelf and I'm wondering what to put up front now...... I'd like to put some Pioneer 13cm ones in the doors, to match my head unit, don't think I can afford a component set at the minute, (plus this is my first ICE install) do I go for....

normal/dual cone?

2 way?

or 3 way to match the rear set?

I still need to pick up a 12" sub and amp for the boot

cheers 8)
