    Stellar. The bloopers are the best!

  5. fastlaneinc Says:

    @Marshmallowrex what? u post what???

  6. fordtruck0 Says:

    @Marshmallowrex that doesn’t make sense

  7. fordtruck0 Says:

    Looks like a clean install! But how does it sound?

  8. motorztv Says:

    @ecode68 Thanks! It’s been a few weeks since the last episode because there’s been a lot of new stuff going on. Check the Motorz TV blog to find out why! :)

  9. motorztv Says:

    @butty41 Thanks for being a long time viewer! We have an exciting season 4 coming up with our Jeep and a lot of Sears tools!

  10. motorztv Says:

    @Marshmallowrex What are you referring to? I’m a bit confused.

  11. motorztv Says:

    @x7media Ha! Check them out at 22:30

  12. motorztv Says:

    @fordtruck0 It actually sounds quite incredible. Great mids, highs, and boom! The head unit’s interface is also very easy to use.

  13. LatinEM2 Says:

    Wow great video!

  14. Marshmallowrex Says:

    @motorztv look At the teeth, on the hole cutter when u drill A you go right like you did onece the drill bit is in you reverse the drill to cut the hole.

  15. motorztv Says:

    @Marshmallowrex The hole saw was in forward the entire time. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to cut the hole :)

  16. motorztv Says:

    @LatinEM2 Thanks for watching!

  17. Marshmallowrex Says:

    @motorztv oh ok i see what your talkin about some hole cutters, are designed diffrent.i have one that i must reverse the drill to cut the hole onese i get the drillbit in.

  18. Marshmallowrex Says:

    but yeah i love the video keep them comeing motors.ill like to know are you guys gonna be doin anything more on the 2010 ss soon.?

  19. motorztv Says:

    @Marshmallowrex Thanks so much! Yes, this is the last episode of season 3, but season 4 is about to start and there will be 12 new episodes!!

  20. Marshmallowrex Says:

    @motorztv hell yeah can’t wait.=)

  21. LatinEM2 Says:

    Yeah all of your videos are very informative. Do you mostly show how to’s on domestics? Do you do any Hondas?

  22. motorztv Says:

    @LatinEM2 The previous episode (spark plugs) we used a Honda, but it’s been mostly a domestics show. There’s no reason for that–it’s just what we have in our stable. I’m hoping to expand a bit in the near future to work on imports and European vehicles.

  23. HRichmond1995 Says:

    ahh perfect timing as tomorrow im upgrading the speakers in my car!

  24. motorztv Says:

    @HRichmond1995 Awesome! I hope this episode helps you out!

  25. Caseybat94 Says:

    you guys should really get the 2011 v6 and start modding it :(

  26. motorztv Says:

    @Caseybat94 I agree!!

  27. gagt27 Says:

    @motorztv your more than welcome to work on my car (05 infinity G35) for ur next project lol

  28. gagt27 Says:

  30. gagt27 Says:

    @motorztv thanks for the info, ill check them out

  31. fidningen Says:

    nice vid motorz!!!

  32. motorztv Says:

    @fidningen Thanks for watching the show!

  33. Robinson4643 Says:

    I think the CJ5 is feeling left out and wants to be wrenched on.

  34. motorztv Says:

    @Robinson4643 Oh yeah! You’ll enjoy S04E01 then :)

  35. VitoRocks03 Says:

    LOL make sure you check for CD’s before you remove it… true story?…LOL

  36. motorztv Says:

    @VitoRocks03 I mentioned that because I’ve done it before :)

  37. HRichmond1995 Says:

    @motorztv it sure did! even thought I don’t own a Mustang :( I only had a limited budget but for £30 ($40 Approximately) but I still got some nice Coaxial Speakers made by JVC. They sound great too!

  38. motorztv Says:

    @HRichmond1995 And you did it yourself so you saved some install cash! Cool!

  39. nr1gotoguy Says:

    i like how you guys mounted the amps, very accessible and never in the way. You couldn’t have picked a better place.

  40. isrracamarena Says:

    @motorztv HAHA! I DONE IT TOO!

  41. seeberg88 Says:

    This just might be the best episode so fare:)

  42. motorztv Says:

    @seeberg88 Wow, thanks!! What did you like most?

  43. Dj3Dub Says:

    You didnt mention that microSD slot to the right of the CD slot. It would be for media?

  44. motorztv Says:

    @Dj3Dub It is for loading photos to display, like when the head unit first starts (that’s how we got the Motorz logo on it).

  45. 240sxmetal Says:

    spotted some all that remains \,,/ haha

  46. centriosrj Says:

    can you do a car stereo system in a 2003 golf gti i wanna save some money and do it my self

  47. 21mejia25 Says:

    great show!

  48. ktofere Says:

    i loved this episode im really big in car audio i noticed it didnt look like ur scraped the sand away from the ground on your amp

  49. twistedman25 Says:

    Whatever happened to “I’m Chris Duke..and this….is motorz!” I like that oppening alot more :( good episode tho :)

  50. twistedman25 Says:

    @twistedman25 *opening

  51. motorztv Says:

    @twistedman25 I liked them too — but they didn’t tell the viewer what we were going to do in the episode, so we decided on a slightly longer intro that gave more detail. Who knows… maybe we’ll bring it back from time to time! Thanks for watching!

  52. raconter1 Says:

    Nicely done! It doesn’t underestimate the amount of work that needs to be done for proper installation! :) Jack

  53. motorztv Says:

    @raconter1 Thanks Jack! I appreciate that comment!

  54. Guds777 Says:

    i am not being sarcastic, i am just asking, are you sponsored of PIONEER.

  55. motorztv Says:

    @Guds777 They sponsored this episode, yes. But they are not a sponsor of the show.

  56. nardipeter Says:

    can u use a lighter instead of a heat gun?

  57. motorztv Says:

    @nardipeter Yes, you can although it’s probably not the best tool.

  58. HRichmond1995 Says:

    @motorztv I sure did! Halfords (Bestbuy) wanted about £50 ($70) to fit them. I Think Not! I did it myself and it looks like a very clean install. *Pats himself on the back*

  59. motorztv Says:

    @HRichmond1995 Nice! That’s what it’s all about… saving money, having the confidence that you did it yourself, and even better–if it breaks you know how to remove it and possibly fix it!

  60. megalamark Says:

    Hi Chris, i have a question for you. I have a 2005 Mustang GT. i have the shaker1000 and on this there is an AUX button, from what i under stand that is for an mp3 or IPOD player. When i push the button it says there is no player hoooked up. i can’t find a jack if there is one. i went to ford and they was dumbfounded like me. do you know where the mp3/ipod port is for the shaker1000? or what AUX button is for? Thanks I love the vids! -Mark

  61. motorztv Says:

    @megalamark Get the P.I.E. FRD04-AUX (Google it for install instructions and more) and once you have that PIE connector in place you can add on an aux unit using its RCA connectors.

  62. ponyryda Says:

    Why didn’t you crank that woofer up man?

  63. motorztv Says:

    @ponyryda We did and it’s awesome, however we ran out of time in the episode to put it in–some stuff had to be cut :(

  64. guinit7659 Says:

    @motorztv I have a 2001eclipse but i cant seem to find the hole in the firewall would you happen to know where i might find it

  65. motorztv Says:

    @guinit7659 I don’t have any experience working with that vehicle, but they all have a hole somewhere to fish OEM cables through! Keep hunting… sometimes you can feel what you can’t see, so try feeling around below other parts mounted to your firewall. Good luck!

  66. guinit7659 Says:

    @guinit7659 Thank you man nice vids keep them coming

  67. motorztv Says:

    @guinit7659 Thanks–we are working hard to produce more!

  68. MustanGT2003 Says:

    he looks and sounds like glenn beck lol

  69. 55jasquiriliver55 Says:

    beegees!!!

  70. IxLeGiTxI Says:

    are y’all going to have another project car series like you did with the mustang but different like Chevy?

  71. motorztv Says:

    @IxLeGiTxI We’re still working on our Mustang, and the Jeep. We’d like to have a Chevy in a future season of Motorz! Any suggestions?

  72. IxLeGiTxI Says:

    @motorztv o alright, maybe a cobalt or camaro, cant wait for more videos to come, great work.

  73. P4t91ck Says:

    @motorztv Camero please :) or Silverado

  74. DjDBKADerick Says:

    I’m getting a 2002 mitubishi eclipse gt and i was wondering can i use all of thoes products of pioneer and monster cables you use on the mustang? and btw nice video man 10/10 keep up the good work

  75. Brendan Sullivan Says:

    I just completed my install on a 2006 Mustang covertible. I installed the exact same set-up with monster accessories. Sounds much better than the shaker 500 system, the pioneer head unit is awesome; with GPS’ touch screen, hand-free sync with iphone, voice control. The subwoofer is great and I like the remote subwoofer control which I mounted under the dash. I had to replace the monster in-line fuse, the monster fuse did not hold up and the replacemnet fuse itself is difficult to find. The system has alot more depth in sound ….. thanks for the video and giving me the confidence to replace the entire system myself. I found all the same components online and the install and accessories cost me around $1200. Well worth it for all the capabilities ….. more then many luxery vehilces.

  76. zoop425 Says:

    lol you had the drill in reverse when you were drilling the tweeter hole.. good job though

  77. motorztv Says:

    @zoop425 Thanks for watching! It must have been an optical illusion on video, because it was going the correct direction otherwise I wouldn’t have a hole there :)

  78. andrewevans9560 Says:

    hi im trying to install a headunit and i did everything you did however it will not power up after installation however the factory headunit will, i know the problem is not the headunit because it will power on when i hard wire it to the battery, any suggestions? i have a 08 mustang

  79. motorztv Says:

    @andrewevans9560 If there are any inline fuses, I’d check that first to make sure they’re not blown. And if there’s a separate ground wire, make sure that it’s got good contact. On the wiring harnesses, check to make sure all of the pins are straight. If you ran a separate power wire, make sure you have a good 12V power using a voltmeter.

  80. andrewevans9560 Says:

    @motorztv I’m pretty sure i did not blow a fuse, i checked the fuse on the headunit, the fusebox under the hood, and the fusebox on the passenger side kick panel, every single fuse is intact, and to confrim this, the factory head unit works. I also forgot to mention that i have tried 3 different wiring harnesses and ensured they were the proper ones for my car. Another test i ran was a volt tester on the headunit, all the cables are reveicing 11.9 volts of power. I can not get it to read 12.0.

  81. mabolzichjjl Says:

    monster cables are pretty much the best in the industry.. i use em all the time

  82. zoop425 Says:

    @motorztv when you first start to drill the hole.. anyway im very envious of this.. I want a double din but there is no dash kit for my car!

  83. thecitysitsinflames Says:

    @DjDBKADerick Yeah, for sure you can use the stuff that was shown here. Just make sure to get the correct sizes. Its pretty straight forward. Good Luck!

  84. Stormshadowlover Says:

    Is the mustang you have eqquiped with the six cd changer? I dont know if that effects my type of headunit. I have a 05 mustang with the shaker 1000system.

  85. a5s5 Says:

    @motorztv for the car suggestions i was thinking a Chevy Camaro maybe

  86. armandobuffon Says:

    when i do this, do i run a chance of triggering the airbag sensors or other things that may damage the car?

  87. PureLegacy Says:

    i thought you werent supposed to install amp’s upside down… doesnt it fry themselves if you do that????

  88. motorztv Says:

    @PureLegacy I’ve never heard of that… I’ve seen amps mounted vertically, upside-down on headliners, and everywhere else for as long as I’ve seen amps installed in vehicles.

  89. YourMKArcadeSource Says:

    @motorztv The accessory wire location changed in ’07. I had on ’05 with an aftermarket head unit and when I tried to install that same head unit in my ’09 with the install kit from the ‘o5, it did not work. make sure you have an install kit that is specific to the year of your car because the accessory wire that provides power to the unit when the key is turned is in different locations depending on years.

  90. 20cmartinez Says:

    I laughed so hard after the cheesiest, most unexpected thumbs up ever at 8:43

  91. doglover101991 Says:

    did you use the same aentaa when you did the car kit instaion

  92. Aaron Says:

    Does the system from Pioneer come with a Dash Kit or will you have to buy it separate?

  93. doglover101991 Says:

    Did you use the siruis car antenna that you used for the car kit installu merry chirstmas

  94. gammatnt Says:

    @PureLegacy don’t install amp upside down. Amp have fins on them to spread the heat out. And hot air raises, Make sure the fin are facing up, not down. You don’t want hot air keep inside your amp.

  95. thazeekster608 Says:

    hey can you please show a video on how you wired the power wire to the battery like where did you go through please

  96. tonymoreau Says:

    i thought you couldnt put amps on metal?

  97. ResQman Says:

    I don’t want (or need) a new amp. Can I install the same head unit and use the same speakers and equipment from the original shaker 500 equipment?

  98. doglover201991 Says:

    did you use the same siruis antenna that you used for the car kit installion

  99. motorztv Says:

    @doglover201991 Yes, we used the same one that came with the Sirius kit.

  100. pujolsfan02 Says:

    Did you take out or disconnect the 8″ door subs that come with the shaker 500? If you left them connected, did you keep the factory amps in the car?

  101. motorztv Says:

    @pujolsfan02 We did not remove them, and they weren’t technical disconnected as we ran our own speaker wires to the amps and the new head unit did not use the old speaker wires at all.

  102. sycotic51 Says:

    im about to get my first car what are the basics that i need?

  103. MrTraxxas2300 Says:

    what is the size of the speaker wire that you used in this vid

  104. JakeEricson Says:

    @MrTraxxas2300 I’m guessing 0.

  105. JakeEricson Says:

    @sycotic51 Get a new head unit to start out with.

  106. JakeEricson Says:

    @tonymoreau If the amp is really great at dispensing heat, it should be fine.

  107. iggy1008 Says:

    Should I attempt installing a sound system lol? Never done it and dont have all of the right tools xD. Checking youtube vids out first though.

  108. billbup711 Says:

    I just watched the whole vid.. And im new at installing head units and car systms.. and you like skiped a LOT when talking about cables… I have a question.. Im trying to learn how to install cables Sub/Amp to head unit.. .And the monster amp kit… What are some good vids that can show me how to…

  109. ControlWise Says:

    I wish I knew how to install things on cars. No one ever taught me how.

  110. IL0NGHORNS Says:

    @motorztv how much would an install like this cost

  111. yoyoma3D Says:

    where did you get your vehicle specific wiring harness?

  112. motorztv Says:

    @yoyoma3D Crutchfield

  113. Mallze Says:

    Hi , i post this comment with the hope that you will find a answer for my problem .. i have a Seat Cordoba 2003 with a stock cd-player . i have 8 speakers , and I whant to mount a subwoofer and a amplif. my car cd-player is seat alana grundig gh 91 -00 model and i can’t fid a place where i can insert the RCA cable from amplif to cd-player .. is there any options ? or i must change my cas in oder to install the subwoofer ? . Thank you :)

  114. DryvBy Says:

    I’m a bit confused on 2 things. The 2nd amp, how do you wire that thing to all of your speakers. Then the rear speakers, did you hook them up with the tweeters or leave the tweeters out?

  115. hockeywall2 Says:

    do you have to have an amp in your car to put in a after market touch screen head unit in your car?

  116. motorztv Says:

    @hockeywall2 Only if you put in a sub or want more power to aftermarket speakers. You can use any head unit with your stock speakers.

  117. brucekirk89 Says:

    @hockeywall2 nope u can put any stereo in that car u want

  118. tkoa1 Says:

    Hi, I have a stock Shaker 500 in my v6 2009 Mustang. My Head unit does not have a RCA hook-up on the back of it. How can I hook up the amp to it?

  119. 3RBRoach Says:

    Lucky that it wasn’t a 2010+ Stang. You have to get a new electronic face plate for the heating/AC controls. And they are not cheap either… And Monster cable is a lot of hype and waaaaay overpriced for what it is. Buy any respected brand and you are fine. Shielding for audio cables is very simple, and even most cheap cables will have shielding for the rca pre-amp signal cables. Shielding does not matter for the power.

  120. MrGH3Man4 Says:

    Can you put more than 1 sub in tothe trunk (Boot in Aus)?

  121. tmetm13 Says:

    how much would this cost if i wanted you guys to install all of this

  122. motorztv Says:

    @tmetm13 You might want to call your local Best Buy or car stereo store. We don’t do installs for anyone :)

  123. JrNba32 Says:

    i have no damn clue about any of this but cool you can do a demo with my car anytime pal

  124. BRabbit Says:

    what did you do with the other speaker that’s in the door? right now i have a pioneer avic d3, Memphis 6×8 in the doors and the trunk and 2 Memphis subs in ported boxes, only one amp and that’s for the subs. i noticed my door speakers rattling and not sounding as good as the used to so ill be replacing them with pioneers, but what should i do with the other door speaker that’s not even hocked up…

  125. PureLegacy Says:

    @motorztv ive researched a lot since this vid, class D amps wont do that cause of the heat sinks. I get it now, and as soon as Scosche comes out with their 2011 dash kit i shall begin my stereo transformation

  126. TErickson22 Says:

    why didnt you parallel wire the sub to 2ohms or is a single voice could sub?

  127. ScoobyBaseball Says:

    @motorztv My MTX Audio TNA-251 (250/1) amp sometimes shuts off while I’m driving. I used to have it in my Civic, but now it is in my 06 Stratus. It didn’t do this while I had it in the Civic, so I’m thinking its a problem w/ re-install settings? I can’t seem to find the “manufacturer’s recommended specification” (or w/e he called it) for my amp; do you know the generic settings or where I can find it, if that is indeed the problem? I can explain the problem better in a msg if necessary, btw.

  128. testify221 Says:

    Well I was expecting a lot more…..you did not show how to remove the rear interior and the most important part how to hide the wires

  129. motorztv Says:

    @testify221 We didn’t mention it because we mentioned it at 4:20 in our Ford Mustang / Leather install video. We should have referred viewers to that episode. Hiding the wires was fairly easy and straight-forward. We organized them all, zip-tied them up and tucked them out of the way. Thanks for watching!

  130. testify221 Says:

    @motorztv ok thanks

  131. ThePROD1690 Says:

    This is URGENT!!! I have just bought the pioneer head unit that you guys used in this video but realised that I DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT DASH KIT!!! I NEED TO KNOW WHERE YOU GUYS GOT THE DASH KIT WHICH ALLOWS THE HEAD UNIT TO FIT PROPERLY!!! If I don’t have the right dash kit it’s £500 wasted on that head unit…

  132. motorztv Says:

    @ThePROD1690 Crutchfield.

  133. XxJONNYxCAKESxX Says:

    This video seems like its more for people who know all the car and audio terminology. not for people like me who dont know a whole lot what they’re doing.

  134. vidsharing10101 Says:

    i keep waiting for his wife to come through the house door and say “honey supper’s ready , why are you still doing that filming stuff ?take off that silly shirt and lets eat !

  135. motorztv Says:

    @vidsharing10101 LOL That’s awesome. And it does happen…

  136. michaelx3arts Says:

    i have a 1995 Mustang v6 and the aftermarket radio was working ..then when i got a new motor put in v8 5.0 ho in the car and how car radio not wanting to work. how can i get this to work …if some one can help me..thanks

  137. KingOfTheClutch Says:

    @motorztv Prepare your arse……Crutchfield, while they have some of the best, and not so common install accessories, they make you PAY for it.

  138. LeoLuna2304 Says:

    ive just bought a 2006 gt and im dying to install a new stereo on it!!

  139. motorztv Says:

    @LeoLuna2304 Have fun! It’s easier than you think and hopefully our episode will help. Please let us know if you installed it based on Motorz (send us some photos) and we’ll feature your ride on our show which is on TV + Internet.

  140. SuperFLyTYEr Says:

    Hey I watch all your f150 videos! They are great! What channel are yall on on tv?

  141. motorztv Says:

    @SuperFLyTYEr Thank you! If you have DIRECTV or DISH Network, just search for it in your TV Guide. Also check the Motorz TV website (first pulldown menu) for more info.

  142. MRBIGSHOT54321 Says:

    If you want to know more just click on that parts button hahaha! awesome video 5/5

  143. motorztv Says:

    @MRBIGSHOT54321 Thanks ;-)

  144. mattmann5150 Says:

    I’m loving all of these Mustang videos. I just bough a 2005 Mustang GT and i’ve been watching all of your guys’ videos to help with the process of installation and removal :)

  145. ithree6mafia Says:

    @DjDBKADerick yes you can use all of that on your eclipse.

  146. ithree6mafia Says:

    jeez replacing those speakers looked like a pain removing everything, but im going to get my subs and amp installed in 2 weeks in my extended cab s10

  147. ichigo8892 Says:

    how does everything you bought for this mustang goes ? i want to do the same in my 05 stang and does the steering wheel controls still work with this stereo ? how much ? i mean everything including the monster cables and the stereo etc ??

  148. jeffw2294 Says:

    When you see a car apart on this show. you KNOW something good is happening!

  149. FreezEntertainment Says:

    Pioneer is okay… they make good decks. But honestly, you want to go with alpine or JL audio when it comes to amps. And when it comes to speakers, I am definitely not a fan of pioneer. for the money i’d go with Kicker speakers, because they have a nice smooth and clean sound to them. And for subs i’d go JL, Alpine or maybe even kicker, in a nice ported enclosure. Good luck, hope my rant of a comment helps someone! :) hahaha

  152. motorztv Says:

    @moegej No, it plugged right into the new head unit.

  153. dragrace4fun Says:

    I like that you guys show a lot of the install, but some of the cars require FDSRs (for the Ford MSCAN bus) or the radio will shut off @ random. It SHOULD be mentioned. Also, NEVER mount amps upside down without the assistance of an installed fan or external one…especially for a high-power amp that has heat sinks for ventilation. Performance under heavy loads will greatly suffer, distortion may increase, and you’ll cut you amp’s lifetime doing that. Otherwise, good vid.

  154. boomerscaraudio Says:

    good video , just a couple things that need to be noted one the amps are not supposed to be mounted upside down reason heat rises! why didnt you guys go with 5×7′ component sets. better sound and well the cut outs are there for them.

  155. boomerscaraudio Says:

    another the mounting of the gps antanna shoud be always away from metal and not under the plastic also the antanna cable should be not be tangled like that it causes an inductance you have to do long range loops …. othe how did you do the brake bypass for the video.. ??

    Just bought a new head for my mustang, had a previous aftermarket head before. so i have updated wiring harnesses etc. i hook up my new head and it powers on fine but there is no sound, not even a crackle. ive got a mustang 2000 3.8l stock. does it have a stock amp inside that is bad or is it a fuse problem?

  159. heartlessvietboy Says:

    I don’t know how inlet/outlet connectors work. Somehow they work together. You’d figure individual businesses function separate and don’t know anything about one another. How could all these connectors be rampart in every business when technologies are different. Because their Wall Street!!

    Hey, I’m self-installing 4 new speakers, a 10″ subwoofer, an amplifier, and a new head unit in my 2003 taurus. The only thing I can’t find out is the exact hardware(wires, harnesses, etc.) to install all of it. I would apprectiate it is you could give me a list of the things i need Thanks! Great vid btw.

    I have a 2008 Mustang v6 Premium with the shaker 500 and I wondering if after installing this in dash nav if your two subs on the doors still work?

  170. ramoody5 Says:

    in a mustang 2003 , if I wanna add a sub, do I have to remove the original amplifiers or can I just add another one?

  171. xXMikeyLXx Says:

    @TheBrandonliteyr the 6×8 speakers produce more bass due to the larger cone size, but the 5-1/2 or 6-1/2 round speaker produces mids and highs better and also has better overall sound quality.

    fightnight, a (very good) local shop charges 50/hr, plus pro- rates another 80 bucks to install the stereo head unit. Honestly it’s not that hard at all to DIY, I’ve done…shit I lost count, 5 or 6. You can add after market speakers with stock stereo, but of course with an after market head unit and amplifier they will sound better. For anyone shopping around IGNORE PEAK POWER RATINGS!!! Match your speakers and amps BY RMS power. RMS is rated, peak is often over stated to sell products, especi

    that is a shaker system you cant just hook up and aftermarket radio with no problems. the aftermarket radio has a 12v amp turn on and the factory amp is 6v so you have to do a voltage drop using resistors or else you will get a nasty pop when the amp powers on unless you are bypassing the factory amp and adding all new speakers like in the video

    When you were going through the tools I started to hyperventilate lol. Good vid man

  241. Janedan Ryan Says:

    you don’t have to strip the interior at all. all you have to do is, from inside the trunk, cut or break the 4 nylon nuts that secure each speaker to the the rear deck. flip the rear seats down and bow the trim panel up and cram something up between it and the deck. this gives you room to lift and twist the speaker when you return to working from the trunk. twist the new speakers up and in. i’ll leave the wiring and bolting to your immagination. remove paint cans, flip seats back up and enjoy.

  242. Janedan Ryan Says:

    i used spray paint cans on their side under the deck panel to give me enough room to twist the speakers out. i taped small bolts to the speaker, so when i got it up in the mounting spot, i guided the four bolts down through the square holes vacated by the nylon nuts, then used washers and finger nuts to hold in place. if the tape doesn’t hold, you can easily get in the back seat and reach under the panel to hold the head of the bolt with your finger while reaching into the trunk to tightennut
