Default 6x9 install

Hey guys I'm just wondering how tough it is to install a new pair of 6x9 speakers in the back of the car. My old stock ones are shot, and I'm planning on buying Infinity Reference 9613i '* off ebay because its about $70 cheaper than best buy, but this leaves me without best buy installing them.

So I was wondering how hard it would be for someone with no electrical experience to install these. It seems like you would just unscrew the old ones, drop in the new ones, screw them on and plug them in? Or am I way off? Thanks.

Take a look in the trunk. IIRC MOS95B posted that it'* a spring clip that swings down in the regular radio models.

There is a plastic clip that the actuall speaker adapter snaps into from the top... Its hella easy to replace the speakers on the SE/SLE bonnies

No. Remove the grill from the top of each speaker. The speaker snaps into the housing. The snap in the back is parallel the rear window and the snap in the front of the speaker is perpendicular to the speaker. It'* VERY easy to remove them.

Ok sounds easy enough. Thanks. I'll probably be getting them within 2 weeks so we'll see if I need to ask anymore n00b questions
