Introduction

This guide shows how to remove the door speakers in the 1994-2001 Integra. For models with component speaker systems, this guide only shows how to remove the woofers.

The method to remove the driver's side door is shown. The passenger's side is almost exactly the same, except there is no connector for side-view mirror controls.

If you are installing after-market speakers, it is not necessary to splice any of the factory speaker wires. Using speaker adapter harnesses makes the task very simple, providing an easy plug-and-play installation.

Remove the plastic Phillips screw towards the front of the door panel. This screw is part of a two-piece securing mechanism. Do not apply force directly onto the screw head, because it will continue to slip into the plastic clip.

Pull the bottom of the door panel away from the door, and lift the entire panel off the door. Do not try to completely remove the door panel yet, as it is still attached by a number of electrical connectors.

On my 2000 Integra GS 2-door model, this was much easier than described here. I didn't have to take off the door panel at all. I just popped the speaker grille off with a flat-head screwdriver, and the speaker was accessible from there.

To remove the speaker grille, pry from the bottom side with a flat instrument and the bottom edge will pop out. The top edge has tabs that have to slide down for grille removal.

My front speakers (6.5" size) had 3 screws mounting them in. All 3 screws were accessible after removing the speaker grille. To remove the speaker, take those screws out, then tilt it forward so that the top edge leans out first. Then you can lift it up and out far enough to reach the wire plug and press the plug release clips with your thumb and forefinger to unplug it.

Not much else to the job of speaker removal, for the front ones. The back ones are more difficult though - you must remove the rear side panel to get those out. But it's definitely worth it to replace those dull-sounding factory speakers with some aftermarket ones!
