So, you're looking for a source of 12 volt power? I know where you can find it :p

If you lay down in your car, head under the dash, feet hanging out the door, you'll see approximately this:

Obviously you won't have a lot of the extra wires that I've added to my car, or that neon tube. But we're just looking at the fuse box here.

In the pic, you see two wires which I have labeled, #1 and #2. They are both sources of 12 volt power. #1 only has power when the ignition key is in the ACC or ON position. #2 always has power. Whichever one you want to use, you'll need a standard 1/4" female spade connector to access the fuse box's male spade connector, which is hiding up in each of those grey plastic squares.

i've got a quick questioinkinda along the same lines, i got anxious to put my stereo in my rex for some reason :roll: and i chopped the harness, is there anyway to rewire the stock clip? i still have it and i want to put it back in
You can, but it's tedious work. You need to de-pin the stock clip (a straightened paper clip works well), attach the pin to the cut wire, and slide it back into the clip. And don't de-pin the clip all at once, or you'll forget which wire goes where.

Or, if the wires on the back of the clip are long enough, just match up the colors of the wires and splice them together.

You won't be able to just "push them out." If you look at the clip, and jiggle the wires around a little bit, you'll see that the metal pins have a small retainer that needs to be pushed down as you pull the wires out the back. That's what the paper clip is for. The pins are re-usable, after you've attached them to the wires, they'll just slide into the clip and snap back into place.

I've got 6.5's in my front doors, and didn't need to cut anything. To be able to say what will fit, I would need to know what size your new speakers are. Typically depth is the problem, not diameter. Unless you're trying to mount a 5x7, 6x9 or an 8" sub :lol:
