Default Rear Deck Removal

Are there any tips or tricks to removing the rear deck after they seats have been removed. Mostly I'm concerned with removing the rear pillars.

What I will be doing is cutting a slightly larger hole for my 6" speakers sealing the area around it with a thin board and liquid sound deadening. Would you recommend that I place the board on top of the deck or under it? I think that I will be easier to do it on top but I may receive better results going below.

the rear pillars just pull off. the little plastic pieces that go into the body (which clip on the pillars) are cheap to replace at the dealer, incase you need to murder one to get them out.

I'm not sure I understand what you want to do with the speakers and the above/below thing.

personally when I do installs I go for stealth and SQ. So I would probably go below

OK thanks the speakers are http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...products_id=33 I currently have them sitting in the stock 6x9 mount but they will actually hit the deck at different frequencies so I had to cut power to them and keep the volume low

I should have clarified a little better I will be using louon(sp) board to seal the empty space that will be on both sides of the speakers. I will cut a hole to match the mounting location and then eather place the board on top of the deck or below with bolts holding it in place and liquid sound deadening between the surfaces. The speakers will be dropped in from the top and bolted to the deck/wood or wood/deck.

oh ok.

I am curious though, the subs you linked mention nothing about being "free air" subs. Which may be causing the excess travel and them to hit the deck.

IMO, w/e you can do to mount them securely, and keep the rear deck from flexing (which it does do) you should do.

"IB Capable As a addition to a great 3-Way set to the popular application of your rear deck getting rid of that pesky factory subwoofer the Eu-700 fits the bill! "

I will eventually create a hanging box with the rear desk being reinforced and the box secured to the wall of the trunk.

I got arround to removing the back seat, pillers, and deck. The only problem I ran into was when removing the second piller cover It snaped in half and the top connector detached from it. I will have to glue it back together before reinstalling it.
