Hi guys- someone out there did a nice full-detail step by step walkthrough of 6 1/2" speakers installed up front. I'd like to put my quart premiums up front in the doors- they're 6 1/2s not 5 1/4s- I know someone did this and the retro-fit did not look too painful- if anyone knows the link, please post
thanks

Scud,

This is propably the one you are refering to:

I followed this one last weekend as I have a Ci, the door removal part went well.

Are you just adding the mb quarts to the existing system, or do you have an after market head unit and amp. If stock you will run in to a couple of annoying issues.

1. Cross-overs internal to the amplifier to three separates (tweet, mid and woofer) instead of two.
2. 2 ohm woofer, 8 ohm mid & tweet.

I think I solved the two above item, but I am waiting for some 4 ohm power resistors to come in to verify.

Fortunately I have a good friend that did custom car stereo installs for about 10 years in southern california and is an electrical engineer to boot.
