Help Changing rear speakers in classic??

Hi

can anyone throw some light onto how to change the rear speakers in a 1998 classic. It seems like you have to take half the car apart, any guidance is appreciated.

cheers

It is a bit involved and can take a bit of time.
Basically you strip the car to the level shown in the photo below and the parcel shelf will just slide out giving you access to the rear speakers.

you can do it without going to that extent though you need patience!! put 6x9`s in mine without taking the side panels or shelf out,just the seat bk.prize speaker covers off undo screws into metal plate remove speaker/plate depending on what speakers youre putting bk in if its 6x9`s you will have to cut some of the metal shelf away (a right pain to do neat) then used about 6 or 8mm thick wood between shelf and metal shelf to mount speakers into no probs doin a mates in a week or 2 so may take pics.

I need to upgrade my rear speakers so have two questions:

For removing the old speakers is it the same process as above for a my00 classic?

What speakers do you guys recommend? Dont wanna spend too much on the rears. Up to about 100 really.

Any advice/suggestions appreciated

Cheers

Ive actually just put some cheap 6.5inch pioneer 2ways 170w max in me runabout that i think would possibly fit in the rear shelf on a scooby as they were quite a narrow basket -cant remember size of std`s in mine they just got launched in to the bin if ya go on a car audio site an look at custom fit speakers should give ya the size for replacements.

Re: Help Changing rear speakers in classic??

Got the existing ones out with the shelf in,in fact put the 6x9`s in without taking the shelf out,got the template out the 6x9 box got it something like central over the round hole in the hardboard carpeted shelf (so the 6x9 cover/grill if ya like would cover the old hole(there aint much scope)marked the hole on the carpeted shelf with a marker pen then cut hardboard shelf with a stanley knife.
(i am pretty patient though this wont suit everyone lol)


There were a metal plate in the metal shelf the speaker mounted in if i remember right,took that out then cut the metal out wider from in the boot to suit the 6x9`s.


Back seat needs to come out but thats only 5 bolts an a few bars to guide round hooks,on a saloon 2 bolts at the front of the base of the back seat,lift front of seat then push back and lift out(theres a bar in the seat that fits under a hook at the rear in the centre can actually feel if ya put ya hand under)



The back of the back seat once the base is out can see 3 bolts along the bottom undo them then lift bottom out whilst pushing down and back (towards window)at the top of rear seat-theres a hook either side that a bar in the seat threads itself round-when refitting get these in first.



If im honest though to replace with like for like doubt you`d need the seat out-just put above to help others out who may not be confident who may be reading this.
