    Touring - Changing rear ceiling mounted speakers

    Hey,
    As many of you will know, a Haynes Book of Lies doesn't exist that covers the e36 touring and i don't want to risk damaging anything when i eventually change the rear speakers so was wondering if anyone can provide a guide, particularly if that guide explains how to fit 6x9s in the ceiling of a touring?

    Thanks in advance

    @M52TouringBeard let us know how you get on with this as I might be looking at upgrading my audio in the not too distant future.
    Always good to get meaningful feedback from real people rather than taking a gamble on something that might or might not do the job.

    Is there a similar guide for squeezing 6x9s into the roof?

    No, quite right. I certainly wasn't planning to do any hacking away at panels, but I'd heard there was some kind of adaptor you could get to make them fit. I can't think how even that wouldn't involve a bit of hacking stuff...
