wait,you have to take the speaker grills off from inside the car and there are 4 screws that hold them on,you will need a screwdriver that turns with the handle or if you have really short screwdriver that would work,but if you want stress free install i would use the angle screwdriver with the turning handle.the wire harness just clips off but you will probly have to land new terminals on the new speakers.which requires cutting the old harness,positive negative is all you need.

ok audio-dudes i'm trying to decide, should i leave the kappa's hooked up through the bose signal which means they will be acting as subs or should a run RCA's to my amp and run 'em full range? keep in mind these are nice kappa coax speakers and i currently don't have subs in the car
