Hi all you Insightful Folks,
I just ordered a set of Blaupunkt PCxb652 Speakers to replace the door speakers in my new Insight. Does anyone have any experience to offer concerning the installation process for door speakers? I ordered the speakers from Crutchfield who said they should fit with a little bit of cut out on the Insight's plastic mounting bracket. I would like to avoid any cutting if possible.
Concerning the back speakers...are they the same size as the door speakers? Crutchfield recommends speakers for the door of the Insight but has no information for the rear speakers.
If this project goes OK, I plan to eventually move ahead with a component system, probably Polk, for the front and switch the new Blaupunkt door speakers to the back.
One step at a time :)

I installed the new Blaupunkt speakers today as a replacement for my rear speakers. Ouch!!! The installation went perfectly smooth as far as fit and the sound is much better than the factory Insight speakers. But I managed to slash my pinky finger while removing the wire connector from the original speakers :cry: There are some very sharp; i.e. thin, metal edges around the original speakers, so beware and be careful!!! My biggest concern was to avoid dripping blood on my new Insight's upholstery. All bandaged and the sound is much improved.
Now to buy a component speaker system to replace the door speakers.

I added a pair of Infinity Reference 6012si speakers to replace my Insight's door speaker. Easy as pie, no need to cut or modify anything.
Now the sound in my Insight is great! I have Blaupunt in the back and Infinity in the front. What a difference from the factory speakers.
I lisen to classical mostly but my Joni Mitchel sounds fantastic now too.
