I asked this question in the speakers and HU areas, but perhaps this was a better place for it.
First, does anyone have experience removing the stock speaker covers on a '95 Camry? I want to upgrade the speakers, but leave the stock grills in place. Security through obscurity, and all that. It looks like the door speaker grills should pop out with a flat-head screwdriver, but I'd rather find out before I force the issue and break some plastic... I haven't looked at the rears too closely, but the grills are a separate unit from the speaker, just as in the front.
The second question is regarding the installation of a standard DIN HU. I'm thinking about one of the Alpine MP3-capable units. This is my wife's car, and I'm certain that she won't want to deal with the hassle of popping the face plate and taking it with her so a hiding face plate, along with stock-looking speakers, will keep the car looking uninteresting. But back to the question: Will these standard DIN units install without requiring any modification of the plastic around the dash openning? I'd like to keep the option of removing the new equipment, and replacing the stock stuff, when I sell the car.
I think I'll hold off on amps and a sub, for now. All my wife really wants is a CD player, and with 6.5" and 6x9 speakers she won't be as bad off in the bass department as I am with the 4" monsters in my '89 Celica. Give me a few months, though, and I'll be back looking for amp wiring tips...
