    Rear deck speaker help

    So I did see any other threads to help with the removal of the rear deck of an 02 wrx sedan.
    I'm installing two 6 1/2's in the rear deck and I want to be able to pull out the cardboard part of the deck to mount the speakers in it better and be able to recarpet and reseal it all up.

    Now I have not attempted to remove it yet as its still in the 30's up here right now in Washington. So let me know if I'm even dumb for asking because its really easy.

    Normally I'm an intuative guy but I'm going to be on a time crunch tomorrow and need some pointers and some what not to do's.

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    I know people will do the whole "no don't do that its not worth it" or "why would you do that, its dumb"

    Well we will see who's laughing when my car sounds amazing! =)

    plus I have been doing car stereo stuff for 7 years now and I can fairly say I know what I'm doing with this type of stuff. Just not how to remove the back deck to seal around it

    That's certainly long enough to know "car stereo" is basically hopeless (compare the sound of any car system to a reference home or studio system, it'll be very discouraging...). The environment is terrible, and the sound usually strident. I don't object to you putting speakers back there... Your time, your effort, your money, your car, that's great! I just don't find autosound stuff rewarding because it tends to sound horrific compared to non-mobile stuff.

    Just not how to remove the back deck to seal around it
    You insist? OK. Remove the brake light first. Then:
    Remove the rear seat.
    Remove the sill covers.
    Remove the pillar low covers.
    Remove the seatbelt anchor bolts (figure out correct torque on this stuff first; I don't know it but I feel this is crucial).
    Remove pillar upper trim.
    Remove center seat belt bolt (again, figure out the torque, this is a safety item).
    Now the shelf should come out.

    You MAY be able to take some short cuts and skip some steps, I've not been back there in a few years. If you can make it simpler, by all means go for it.

    If you are going to do all this, I'd not bother with carpet. Leather!

    Thank you very much! Thats what I was looking for.

    And yes I understand that the car audio cannot compare to home audio but hey.. The better my car audio sound is, the better.. Who cares what my home sounds like while im cruising down a freeway ;p
