New HU and Speakers

Received a few Best Buy gift cards over the holidays so I used them on these:


Alpine Type-S 5x7s

Going to try to install these this weekend at our SoCal meet...haven't installed one of these in a few years and never tried speakers before. How hard is it to remove those panels...especially the rear ones...they look like a big PITA...just cant wait to have that nice AUX plug in, no more FM transmitter for me!

a lot of force (i'm assuming its an extended cab). be gentle and use a screwdriver to pry the clips out. They are all around the edges and there are one or two by the window. Also you have to take the nut off that hold the seatbelt up.
