I took a few photos today when I installed the MB Quart FSB216 component set in my Project Fit. So I put together this post to show a bit of the install. It’s not a complete install guide but should help should you need to replace the door speakers in a 2007-2008 Honda Fit.
First off you’ll need to take the screw out that the drill is pointing at here, it is out in this photo.
Then you need to slide the door handle forward and pull it away. You slide the clip off the door release rod and it will pull right out. It is slid off in this pic.
You can then use a small screwdriver to pry the door armrest trim cover off. It is tight but you just pry from the bottom after popping open the little tabs, the screwdriver is pointing at one.
Remove the screws circled in red and unplug the harnesses.
You should be ready to go and look like this now. Pull the door panel off, it is snapped on. I find pulling hard once on the door pocket will release it easily. Then lift it off the window track.
Here are the Phoenix Gold 6″ midbass that the MB Quart 6.5″ will be replacing. I had these mounted with some MDF baffles which were behind the foam. You could mount yours this way too and they would hide behind the OEM door panels. I just wanted to do it different. The OEM speakers are actually square at the bottom, they only screw in on the top and clip in at the bottom. So you’ll either need to make some brackets, order some, or mount them to the door panel like me.
Here is the door with the PG 6″ removed. I also pulled the foam and cut away some of the metal to make room for the larger 6.5″ I also cut a hole in the door panel and placed the foam baffle directly into the door panel. I then mounted the 6.5″ directly to the door panel using the MB Quart Grills. I think the stock cover blocked a lot of sound and I like this look.
