kc707 : who are you?
Plz help ez prob

Hi all!
So, this is my first time on here, and I'm pretty stoked there's a place just for Mitsubishi owners. I've had 2 guys flake on me to help me put some new 6x9's in my '01 eclipse. I've gone out to look at how hard it would be to replace them and I'm not sure if it's just those two bolts on the side when you let the back seat down. What's next? Just pull the panel off? Can someone please walk thru this please? I'd fully appreciate the help.

I was going to send you to the how-to for that but there isn't one specifically for speakers. From memory you need to take off the panel, its clipped on with some push clips around the edges and some in the middle but it's been about 10 years. Maybe someone has pictures.

It's honestly really easy. The rear panel is held on by clips (and 1 or 2 screws, I don't remember too clearly as it was a while ago, and it was fairly simple and straightforward). Just start at the door, and begin pulling the panel off. If you feel resistance, look and feel around for the screws. After you remove the panel, it's just 4 screws that hold the speaker on. If you still can't figure it out, I can go take a few pictures.

I can think of 3 screws that hold the 6x9 interior panel cover in place, 2 by the rear seat (fold the seat down) one down under the panel. You have to take out the rear seat bottom cushion by pulling the two white hooks and lifting up on the cushion. You might have to take off the B-pillar trim as well to allow you to completely remove that 6x9 panel and make the whole job easier. (can't remember which panel is on top)

That's held in place by a screw at the rear strut top mount (pop off the little triangular cover), one side has a little hanger that has to be taken off, and of course the top seat belt bolt (17mm). I've taken my interior apart 2 or 3 times now. It's not too difficult, just be patient and think logically about what panels would need to be removed FIRST.


EDIT: seems that screw I described for the B-pillar is for that 6x9 trim (I think holds both, not sure)

Anyway everything you need is right here in this thread, make the garage section your friend. HOW TO: Remove rear seats/panels

If I had taken pictures during my 4 channel amp install/ 6.5/6x9/tweet install I would make one, but unfortunately I didn't. For now people just have to pull the info from the different how-to's together.

The hardest panel for me was the door panels, but as I said review those how-to's and have the mental picture of where screws are and take your time if you haven't done it before and you won't run into any issues.

The door panels are so easy. 3 screws and it pops right off. I have had mine off and on so much it only takes me about 2 minutes a side haha.


When you install new components in the doors, I recommend ditching the stock ABS plastic baffles and installing some MDF ones. The reduced vibration translates to fuller sound you can hear.

It's easy for me now, but the first time I tried it I didn't have the window rolled down.

If I had a 3g to borrow/play with to do the install how-to, I would do a nice in depth vid and write up.

I did this (sorta) for the door speakers in my car. Well, at least for the MDF baffles. Jaloosk's Spyder: The End.

It's not hard. Like changing a battery. Just make sure the + and - connections are correct.
