Default 1997 speaker installation

i have purchased over 500 dollars worth of speakers for my front doors and rear deck. i do not have much more money and do not think i can afford installation for at least a month. i was wondering if anyone could walk me through step by step how to install my 5.25'* in the front doors and my 6x9s in the rear doors and also my head unit. please in detail include how to take things apart and such, that is where i have the most trouble. also in detail how to connect the wiring to the speakers. anyone that does this, i will be grateful to you to the grave.

well, this is VERY easy.

first can we start off with some details?

what speakers did you get?
are you amping them?
HU?

what year and model of car?
and where are you located, there may be someone near you that has done this before

i got these 5.25'*: http://www.cardomain.com/item/JBLP552

alpine type-r 6x9s

and i cannot find a link to the head unit, it is a JVC and is 180 watts. i know that it is the standard size for a head unit and is not one of those oversized ones that go into alot of GM vehicles. i also know that i need to go and get an adapter to make it fit.

thanks for the responses, please continue to help.

( by the way i also forgot to mention i do not know how to take out the stock head unit or the doors off if you were wondering)
