Honestly I'm not worried (I dont play songs with alot of bass though...). But instead of wood I would recommend using MDF, which is what you are suppose to use... the only reason why i didnt use MDF was that I drove my yaris to the store that I was getting the wood/supplies (new drill bit and saw blade) and the only size MDF they had was a 4ftx6ft.


There are aftermarket speaker brackets... I'll see if I can find it. But if you use MDF you wont have to worry about it breaking or the speaker coming "free".

vodka... nice tutorial... you mentioned the rear speakers are too big? so they are bigger than 6x9 size? i thought rear coax speakers never get bigger than 6x9? what is the stock rear speaker size?

sorry for the confusion.
but the stock rear speakers are 6x9 the issue was that the hole for the speakers was to big to just attach the speaker to the car, so you either need to buy or create a speaker spacer for the new speaker.

Some companies like Alpine sell oversized speakers for holes that are too big

For instance the 6.5" oversize typr R in my laser
Most standard Alpine 6.5" would not leave enough metal to screw the speaker to the base. the actual speaker hole was larger then the speaker mounting hole diameter.
I ordered the set of oversized 6.5" and the cone itself was 6.5" the actual overall diamerter was over 7" and fit the hole perfectly.

The stock speakers in the Yaris are a joke. I think I blew mine out three months ago... straight up paper-coned shittyness.

I had Polks in my Eclipse. They were nice for the price. Simple two-way 6.5"s, I think they cost me 80 bucks a set. I'm gonna try really hard to keep it all Alpine in the Yaris, though... assuming my wallet can handle it.

As far as Pioneer, they're cheap, and in this country you get what you pay for.

I put in those exact same speakers about 2 months ago, pain in the ass to do, but definitely worth it, they pump, and with a subwoofer as well, my car has the perfect balance i wanted.

do the door speakers are made completly out of paper??

don't they have a metal frame? is that why the DIY on installing them, the easy way of removing them is just tearing them off??

The cones are made of paper, I know that. Of course they aren't TOTALLY made of paper, although props to anyone that can do that... damn.

The DIY is funny because the bracket you use to mount the speaker is built into the speaker and reusing the piece requires a Frankenstein-esque hacking of the stockies. The better alternative:

(for liftbacks, sedans the rear speakers are different and you can follow the original post in this thread)

bigsky2 hooked it up.

well the way i see it; the DIY requires that the modder/DIY'r should use a little brain power and create some stuff for their car by themselves, as to feel like they've done alittle more then just copied off instructions off the internet...


then again I'm about 1/2bottle of scotch less then I was an hr ago, and have had along day... so take the above statment as you will.

I loved this tutorial!! Still relevant on my 2010 Toyota Yaris Sedan (stick shift of course). Did exactly as you instructed with one difference. I converted the existing speaker into my new mount. I decided to go super low budget. The speakers are just 6x9 Boss Chaos SE692. They get the job done and they were only $15 at Fry's.

I cut the paper cone diaphragm to prep the oem speaker. Note how I leave the plastic piece on top:
<a href="http://imgur.com/sM0l7BO"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/sM0l7BO.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

Then I cut the four metal pieces connecting the mount to the voice coil with a metal grinder:
<a href="http://imgur.com/EHBKmIE"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/EHBKmIE.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

This meant I could simply drop the new speaker in without issues cuz I left the plastic on it to help the clearance and save me from making a new mount. (sorry for blurriness):
<a href="http://imgur.com/tjd2tnf"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/tjd2tnf.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

I drilled holes to put the bolts through that came with the speaker to secure the speaker to the mount as you'll see in the pic. Some good glue would have done just as well I suppose. Obviously with the bolts sticking out it won't fit in the car like that. I used the included nuts to those bolts in order to secure it then I used my metal grinder to shave off the excess bolt and even grinded down the nuts a bit to about a height of 3mm. sorry for blurriness:
<a href="http://imgur.com/otXaEYv"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/otXaEYv.jpg" title="source: imgur.com" /></a>

That did it and I mounted the speakers as if they were stock. The stock speaker grill had no clearance issues which is what I was worried about. It was nothing short of perfect. I soldered the new speaker connector to the existing one and voila. Thanks again

Thanks guys. Just upgraded to some Alpine 6x9

My factory speakers were just trashed after 10 years. About 5 years ago they started to rattle and distort on voices. I finally took care of that today.
