    I did the same on mine many moons ago, likely using the same pioneers that you've gone for. According to my Amazon invoice from 2011, I used Pioneer TS-G1313i 13cm 3-Way Speaker and 140W Max for the rear (and used Pioneer TS-G1013i 10cm 3-Way Speaker and 130W Max on the front). They fitted like a glove

        Remove rear seat bolsters, and seat base, then there's a couple of screws holding the panel in, remove and pull it up like a door card.

          IIRC
          You’ll need a long socket to undo the seat back latching pin, or it’s an allen key and a ring spanner?
          Take a pic or count the threads to get them back in the same position.

            Yep, or I have some nicely cranked, old school, ring spanners for this job, 17mm from memory? Even some deep sockets are no good, as they haven't got enough clearance deeper into the socket.

                On the rear seat pins: they can be removed and refitted with a deep 17mm. If, as mentioned, you can't reach enough of the nut with the socket, you need to adjust the length of the pin using the allen key in the middle. If you can get away without adjusting them, they go on and off dead easy, lining then up with the seat socket when refitting.

                The card has a screw up near the quarter shelf, one behind the bolster, one in the kick plate and one you can see on the b pillar when the door is open.

                Don't forget to check your rear quarter shelf tweeters are wired and working before you refit the card!
