    Short answer: You have to remove the door panels.

    I've attached a copy of the Crutchfield Master Sheet that came with my stereo for your review. Depending on whether you're talking about the front or rear speakers, the answer to your question is on page 7 and/or 9.

    like they said, the whole door panel has to come off. its pretty easy, and fyi, your speakers are a 5x7. and unless someone is going to make you custom adapter that completely replace the factory ones, your gonna have to run 5x7's. not to say that you need to venture from them anyways. my bostons sound great! good luck!
