6X9 Pioneer speakers are a replacement or upgrade for speakers in a car. 6X9 refers to the dimensions of the speakers. These types of speakers are larger and tend to be used for the rear speakers that are behind the rear seat. Although 6x9 Pioneer speakers can be made to fit any space via customisation, normally they replace speakers in a car that already has 6X9 speakers.

  1. 1

    Open the boot to access the speakers behind the rear seat. Alternatively, if the rear seats can be folded down, the boot can be accessed that way.

    Use the socket wrench to unscrew and remove the speaker grill. The grill must be unscrewed from the underside of the backboard behind the rear seats.

  3. 3

    Unclip the speakers from the car stereo. The clip is on the underside of the speaker.

  5. 5

    Insert the speaker clips onto the 6X9 Pioneer speakers. The speaker clip has a plastic clip on one side and two metal clips on the other. Place the metal clips onto the metal tabs on the speaker. These can be crimped down to secure them. The speaker clip is specific to the car brand and can be obtained from, a local MyerEmco or BestBuy, or any car stereo installation shop.

  6. 6

    Place the speaker into the backboard with the magnet side of the speaker facing down. Screw it into place to secure it.
