Default SPEAKER REMOVAL

I've just bought a 2000 se bonneville, 76000 miles, i was just wondering how do you remove the front and rear speakers, and if i would need any specials tools! If anyone knows, are the front 6 x 6 or smaller? I was thinking of either sony or pioneer, which would work better?

You'll be fine with either of those brands, but I myself prefer Infinity or Rockford Fosgate

sony sucks for car audio.

if you aren't looking to spend a lot and are keeping the stock headunit, pioneer is a decent way to go.

here is the procedure for the rear

both procedures include removing the trunk liner ( black pastic piece in the rear of the trunk) - this is self explanitory for removal


If it was me, i would try option 2 and if you are not satisfied of how well the speaker grills line up, perform option 1.

Option 1: Removing rear shelf.
Lift up on rear seat bottom and remove from vehicle. There are Several bolts at the bottom of the seat back that hold the seat in, aswell as the seatbelts, remove all these bolts.
At the top of the seats if you pull back on the seatback you will be able to see 4 black clips that hold the seat in, use a screwdriver to depress the clips and the seat should come loose.
Now you have to remove the pillar covers from the sides of the passenger comaprtment, these are just held in with b ody clips aswell, just pull on them and remove.
The rear shelf cover is next to come off. ghuess what.... more body clips. pop the body clips loose and you in business. reverse to re-assemble

Option 2: this was what i went with the SECOND time i put speakers in....
Pull up on the grills. the grills will come right out with a small bit of persuasion WARNING: you may not be able to re-install the grills very well without performaing option 1. The grills are held in by tabs that are folded over to the shelf cover. the speakers will not come out easily this way.. the cut outs in the shelf are smaller than the speaker, so a little finagleing will do the trick ( its much easier to push them out the top from the trunk )


also where are you at In NC???
