Man, I tried to pop the left front door speaker grill off and it busted a clip, so I think you have to take the whole panel off huh...

Anyone got some complete instructions on how to go about this without fudging anything up and getting things back in order??

tks

Got to take the door panel off then they are still a pain to get off. The tabs tend to break as the metal clips are removed. You'll see once the door panel is off.

supra400hptt: I'm from prince william county too!! Montclair actually...

How do I go about taking the door panels off, have you done it?

1. remove the door grip screw down inside?
2. pop out the plastic screw covers?

will anything fall out of place, i'd hate that...

thanks

Ok it was very easy to remove the door panel.

Remove the screws along the bottom, in the door handle cup (removing the black screw cover). There are two screw flat caps that cover two gold screws, and then a bunch of plastic clips (push in the center dot, and they come out with your fingers)

remove the screw on the handle, take the handle cover off, and there is one more screw on the inside.

Then, the whole door panel should pop up out of the window well, and there will be two plugs, you can remove them if you want, or set them down gently.

3 screws hold each speaker in. My speakers were like "glued" with some kind of rubber cement... I guess to seal....

These speakers are 5" speakers, not 5" 1/4!! So dont get the wrong ones. You can screw one screw into a 5.25, but it will not sound as good as a speaker that fits and sits correctly while sealing the back of the speaker from the front.

Crutchfield said 4" speakers work if you redrill but I dont think it will seal very well.

Glad you got it. I'm pretty sure the stock speakers are 4". I'm in the middle of redoing my stereo and looked at putting 6 1/2s in there but didn't think it would turn out good. I'm half way done with doing kick panels for the 6 1/2s. Think I'm going to take off the first week of september to finish things. Been working on this for over a year but got caught up in performance mods.

Don't think I've seen you around. I travel from Woodbridge to Ft. Belvoir everyday but hardly ever drive the supra. If you ever see me it's red with white volk te37s. There is another guy named Chris with a black supra in Montclair and his girlfriend has a white one. If you ever want to stop by and check out the car let me know. Planning on a single early next year.

removing the supra door is a b*tch! those black plastic covers (for the screws) are a pain. but once i did it the first time, it was easy. there's a guy on this forum that custom makes 6" speaker braces for the front speakers. i'm thinking about gettin' some, once i figure out how to get to those tweeters. i'm gonna upgrade that component system.

I sell the mounting plates to allow you to front mount a set of 6.5" speakers in the door of an MKIV.

$150 plus shipping

Many, many satisfied MKIV customers have purchased things from me.

Hey Thomas,

Are these the mounting plates you are referring to? In your experience would a Dynaudio 16cm woofer fit?

Yes, the panel will fit a Dynaudio woofer... I believe in America we call the speaker you are referring to as a 7" woofer?? I haven't built a panel for "that" paticular speaker but don't see why it could not be built to fit. The preceeding picture is of a mount for an oversize Pioneer 6.5" 3 way. I am quite sure you will not encounter many problems fitting the Dynaudio woofer onto the door panel of an MKIV because the speaker is front mounted to the door. (The stock grill is removed and the grill that comes with your replacement is used instead) There is a bit of metal on the top part of the inside of the door that will have to be trimmed to enable most decent speakers to fit.

Fairly sure I could build a mounting plate for your speakers... getting it to the Netherlands is another story.

Does it seal off the rear of the speaker from the front to create great sound, or do those plates just hold a 6.5" in place..??
