Ok, i dont know how to take off my door panel so i dont know the size of the front speakers. Im looking to up grade the front door speakers and rear deck. I was to get 6.5" But i dont know the size. I was thinking about the Infinity Kappa 692.7i 6x9 2-way for the rear deck and the Infinity Kappa 60.7 cs 6.5" for the front powered by a massive amp 150x4 at 2ohms.

the question was, are these speakerd decent? or should i look into something else. I dont have that much money to spend though

According to Crutchfield the front door speakers in a '95 Accord are 6.5"

Their speaker-size database isn't always terribly accurate, however, so this may not be correct.

You can for just a few bucks buy the MasterSheets for your car from them and it will give you detailed instructions on how everything comes apart :fyi:

6x9's will fit. Honda just put 6.5" plates over the 6x9 opening.
If possible id look into some pioneer REV series 6x9's

Pioneer Rev's would be a much better choice...no matter what the infinity claims it holds as far as power goes...they don't

Ok, i dont know how to take off my door panel so i dont know the size of the front speakers. it isn't too hard, just unscrew the door handle, slide it either forwards or backwards, i can't remember which, then it pulls right out. disconnect the door rod and the power lock connector.then unscrew the loswer handle thingie with the window controls on it... it can be kinda tough to get out, but it pulls diagonally backwards. Disconnect any connectors on it.then use a BIG flathead screwdriver with duct tape or something covering the metal tip to pop the plastic fasteners that hold the door on (some of them will probably break... autozone sells replacements). Remove the black trim piece that goes in the front corner of the window by popping the fastener then rotating it downwards (if i remember right) to remove it.at this point you can just lift the panel upwards and off of the door. If you've got the lil door lights there will be one last connector to disconnect.It sounds harder than it is... it takes abotut 5 minutes when you've done it before. maybe 10 or 15 if you haven't.

You dont even need to remove the door panel, the speaker grille comes right off.
Fronts are 5 1/4".
To remove the door you need to remove the screw in the latch, pop that out and remove the lock lever. Its a pain to get out. Remove the lock harness. Then you need to remove the black corner piece, just pull out. Next is the screw in the arm rest, pop the cap off, unscrew. There is another one in just under the handle. Dont worry about the plastic one way in top corner, it'll rip right out. Stick a big screwdriver under the door panel and pry it open. Nothing will get damaged if you dont protect the tip. I can do this in under 5 min :)

iono about the 94-95 models but on the 96 models the grills do not come off, front nor rears. for my 96 i had to take off the door panel to unscrew the screws that's holding the grills into place. for the rears, you would have to take some screws out as well, there should be 3 screws for each rear grill and 2 or 3 for each front grill.

Fronts only. Rears are screwed underneath. They do not stay in place without screws either :pissed:

5 1/4 opening for the fronts?

yep
You can fit 6.5's in there but you have to be careful on the mounting depth because its really shallow

Ok, i was looking at the pioneer revs and their independence is at 4 ohms, i wanted something that was rated at 2 so that i can get the most power out of them.

Dont need 2ohm speakers

i'm about to rebuild my door panels for this very reason... i'm thinking along the lines of this:
http://www.carsound.com/forum/showthread.php?t=60842&highlight=vinyl

except covered in vinyl and with only one mid and no tweeters on the doors. I'll probably just build out from the factory location, then mold an enclosure on the inside of the door panel and the inside of the door frame, attach the two, and have completely removable panels that take advantage of all the availible door space...

man ..

mmc690, i have yet to see a better 6x9 for the price, 100$ on ebay, u WILL not regret. better mid-bass response than infinity, and more cleaner/clear/accurate, not too harsh, and is loud

i always wanted to get that back in the day, until i realized i didnt need it. but i have heard of it and it has some nice *** bass:) do some research also; i read from a few reviews that these tend to fail.
