Thanks, that's great. In second step it refers to a door behind the inside door handle that needs to be removed to access a screw. I don't think my car has that door - did yours?

Saw that one but there were too many differences. I used a step by step photo guide here:

2010 Mustang GT Front Door Upper Speaker Replacement

And Jazzcat, you are right. There are different scenarios to try and differing opinions but given the 'fun' of installing the rears, it's something that one will only want to do once!

I hear you on the stereo imaging but I use a multispeaker set up at home for music but it's in stereo as well. So all three rights are producing the right image and left, etc. with equal bias. In thoery, I have one stereo set in front, one in the middle and one stereo set in the rear with my butt in the middle of all of it.

So maybe one should sit in front of two and then four speakers to decide if they want to commit to the rear? Otherwise, I suggest just swap out the rear as it looks worse than it really is.

i installed those Pioneer in the front doors of my Canadian V6 Pony with standard stereo and they sound great. BASS and TREBLE both set to flat and fader set to 3/4 toward front. I will not upgrade the rear speakers, but have a 10" sub with a JL Audio JX250.1 to install to complete the setup.

I have the older TS-D680R in my 04 Mazda3 since new and they have been rocking and jazzing for the last 7 years, they are built to last. They are currently running on 80watts per channel Sony Xplod amp.

The stock radio in the FORD is lot more powerful then the one in my Mazda (without the amp)

How and where did you run the wires to the amp ?
