Can anyone tell me how to remove the door panel or just the speaker grilles on the C230 Coupe to access the 6.5 and 5.5 door speakers? I would like to measure the speaker depth helping me decide what type of replacement speakers i can purchase.

Has anyone replaced the stock speakers while retaining the base stereo? If so, what brand/style speakers did you use and does it sound good. These base speakers are very dissapointing!

i replaced all four door speakers with alpine SPS-170A 6-1/2" models. also added an alpine subwoofer in the trunk. the difference was definately noticeable and worth the investment.

but be careful when removing the grill and speakers. i cracked a plastic support for one of the covers and had to get it replaced. and pulling the speakers out was a pain.

if you go that far, you might as well replace your stereo, too. you'll need a new case for you dashboard.

Thanks for the info on the size, so the rear can actually fit a 6.5 without problem? BTW, could you please elaborate a bit as to the best way to remove the "grills"? I tried feeling around the pieces but don't intend to snap off anything if I could help it.

THANKS!!!!!!!!!
