back door speakers

OK, who has had these out? What are they made of? What size is needed to replace them? Any tips on removal and replacement.
Seems to me they are 'muddy' sounding and I'd like something a bit more crisp sounding in the back seat area.
Ideas ??

You're right, the rear door speakers sound very muddy. A number of us on this forum have replaced them with something better. The rear door speakers are pop-riveted in, you will need to drill out the 3 pop rivets that hold each speaker. The speaker hole in the door seems small but if you use speaker adaptors you can fit 6 1/2" diameter speakers. I made my own adaptors out of 3/4" thick particle board but you may want to use MDF instead, or you can buy a pair of adaptors.

I went with component speakers and put the separate tweaters up high on the rear doors, it makes a world of difference. The sound stage has so much more "presence" now. Have fun!
