Re: [DML] Stock Speakers: (WasTo Cut or Not to Cut)

I removed the glove compartment and air vent hose,  so at least one of the front of the speaker was easy to get to, I'm still looking for 3.5 and 4x 10 speakers that can handle more than 25 watts?

Removing the seats makes things a lot easier. It's only eight nuts total. I have a small bench about the same height as the DeLorean's threshold and instead of getting all the way into the car I lay across the bench and I'm only in the car from just below the shoulders up.

Due to the contortion factor, I found this to be one of the worst 
tasks I've attempted on my D in the year-and-a-half I've had it. 
Getting in-and-out of the tight spaces holding a flashlight in my 
aching jaw, dropping the nuts in my eyes more than once and having 
to get wriggle back out from under the dash to find them, etc., was 
pure agony. A pair of safety glasses with lights would be worth 

The speakers themselves were no problem... I bought a pair of Bosch 
3.5's for $30 at Fry's Electronics. They had just a very slight 
center dome protrusion. They'll handle 40 watts or so. I just 
didn't crank 'em down hard when reinstalling and haven't noticed any 
rattling or dash problems.

Fortunately, since then, John Spangler came up with a relatively 
painless way to accomplish the speaker replacement task using a 
little glue and a mirror. Check out his front speaker project at and plan before you work! Your back will thank
