Installed New Speakers

Hey guys, I got new speakers for my birthday, they are Sony Xplod's 6x9 rated at 100W RMS.
I got them for my birthday and have finally got the time to install them. The front speakers were easy and just mounted right in, but the rear speakers were a PITA. I have pics of the rear speakers before/during/and after. Here you go,

During: The cut is not perfect, as you can tell, but it was a serious PITA cutting that metal with a jigsaw in 85 degree heat. Tried cutting it with a Dremel but it wouldn't do.

They really sound amazing compared to stock, and with my sub. I didn't want anything crazy bassy, so i stuck with a Bazooka and I love itt.

You have to unbolt the seat belt, remove the entire door panel. It's fixed onto the door with a million push pins and half of them break when you remove the panel. Then you have to line up the half a million pins that didn't break and jimmy em back in the holes. It's rediculous to say the least.

Looks pretty good for a speaker to big for the hole
I personally would have stuck to the stock size speakers, a 6x9 doesnt sound to much different from a 6x8
But then again they was free, make due with what you have
