I have holes in the metal too, but I didn't know if you just had to remove the weird carpet-insulation crap--does it also have wood like yours in the picture?

no, i made the rings myself and cut the rear cover and carpet myself as well. its not hard (if you know what you're doing and have patience and the correct tools), just a little time consuming.

I don't know about other brands, but when I bought my Audiobahn Speakers, they came with stencils to help with cutting and placing. I just laid my stencils down, lined them up, traced them, then cut out the holes.

out there are some wood spacers that "improve" your sound and you can mount it over the stock holes so you can fit bigger speakers than default max allowed, they are covered by some carpet maybe there are other colors than grey.

I installed 6.5 in my corolla last month. if you look up in your trunk at your metal brackets, there are 4 spaces. The 2 centers are for the 6x9s and the other 2 are for the regular round speakers.

If you don't want to build your own mounts, you can go to best buy, car audio shop or etc. you can buy speaker brackets to mount your speakers on the OEM metal mounts.

Talking

get some "good RMS" full range whizzer cone speakers for the best sound. especially for the door 4"ers.

i hate coaxials. whizzer cones are so much clearer. im thinking about going fostex for mine with the new indash dvd and subs i got. as soon as it warms up again.

another cold spell this week.

hey, i have the same car and i was wondering where you wire the speakers to the head unit. because i was going to just install the two rear speakers to see how it sounds before installing an amplifier.

I'm about to put rear speakers in my '93 Corolla. When I look via the trunk, I see all the holes for the speakers, and I'm able to cut them out. But, when I recently replaced my stock tape deck with a Kenwood CD Player, and when I was wiring the new radio harness, I noticed that there were wires for rear speakers.

My question being; is there wire running to the back where I can hook my speakers in? Or do I have to do some wiring?

Yep, there will be wires running into the trunk, just under where the hole cut-outs in the metal are. I've got no rear speakers from factory in my Corolla and they're definitely there. If you can't find yours, then take off the back portion of your rear seats as someone may have tucked them under the sides.
