how to get to the rear speakers

This has been covered several times, but never really answered. Having just done this two weeks ago, here's how it goes.
Remove the bottom cushion of the rear seats, just two bolts below the front of the cushion. Then comes the rear of the seat, you'll need torx bits, 47 I believe. After those two, you can lift up the seat off the two hooks holding it in, and then move it out. Two more torx bits (same size) are holding in the shoulder belts to the frame, they are a little trickier as there are the side trims somewhat covering them and will need to be pushed out of the way for removal.  Pop the little plastic covers on the rear deck for the seat belts and pull them down the belt and off. Unscrew the two hooks at the tops of the rear windows, and then pull the plastic trim pieces off. I found it easier to pull from the rear wind shield and move forward. There are about 4 plastic clips securing each piece, just pull, they shouldn't break. If they do, a little glue goes a long way. Finally, pull the deck out. You don't have to pull the seatbelts out nor take the deck out of the car to remove the speakers, but you can if it's in your way. Installation is the reverse.

Heh, that's one reason I'm glad I have an older Beretta...Drop-out speakers with no disassembly required!  Course it makes it easier to steal the speakers, I guess, so it's a trade-off.

After I pulled out the stock ones, I  bolted the new speakers from the bottom up with self tapping screws. The catch is that was back in 99.....I think they will need to be replaced about every 10 years :p

Pulling th back speakers is easy after you do it a few times. I can get the back seat out of a retta in 5 minutes flat.  :D   But the best thing to do is rip the back speakers out completely. Put some 6.5s up front and you'll never need those back ones ever again.
