hey guys i wanna chuck some 6x9 in me vt just wondering i had a quick look at the parcel shelf and there are metal plates covering the speaker holes. how do i get them off do i just hit it with a hammer or does it need to be cut? i was thinking of just disconnecting the rear 6 inch speakers and just extending the wires to the back.oh and the carpet pieces covering the metal plates do they just come off too?

Yep that's correct.. i just used a chisel on one of the tags, then just bent the plate up and down until it came out... The parcel shelf will need to come out anyway to get accsess to theholes and you will have to cut through the shelf for holes.

Yeah, cut them out. Then get some VT-VX speaker grilles from where ever, and drop those in to fill up the holes.

I did mine the other week, and it turned out ****. I'm thinking of getting hold of a parcel shelf out of a Calais/Berlina. I think they have 6x9s in the shelf from the factory. Could be wrong, though.

Give yourself a day to do the job. 40% of the interior has to come out of the kents!!

It's all about making the car look presentable,not everyone want's to show the world that the sound system is other than stock.Only YOU know what your system contains,therefore theives are left wondering.Setting it up that way is just the kind of thing that will make life easier for someone to steal,or indeed if it is worth stealing.No one likes a show off.
