I installed 6 1/2 inch speakers in the headrest. These are, by far, the BEST speakers that I have listened to (by size.) They are the Kenwood Excelon KFC-X... Show moreR 600 2 way speakers. These are as big as you can put into the headrest. The smaller 5 1/4 would work better, but still the same amount of work, so pop the extra $10-$20 for the larger and get ready for work.
To do this job quickly, within 2 hours, you will need a good quality cuttoff saw, preferrably one that is about 2 inches round and has a mandrel that you can attach to the end of a electric drill.
This is how it all starts out. Pretty innocient.
This is where it gets kinda tricky. First I thought that I would be able to just cut a smaller round hole in the metal brace that supports the headrest, (don't worry, there is still a metal frame that forms the outside of the headrest.) If your head rests on this headrest, I would think that it would not be too safe to cut this piece of metal out as it is the support for your head in an accident. However, for most of us that own these little cars, our head is well over the headrest.
Unfortunately, I had to cut out the complete piece with the cutoff saw.
This is the finished product before the installation of the speaker.
Here is the headrest cover before and after. All you need to do is drill a few holes for the sound to emit better.
Here is the speaker installed. Re-install the seats and you are ready to have great sound for about $100 and 2 hours of time! Much better than....
By the way, there is no need to use any attaching hardware for the speakers as the headrest cover zips closed and holds it in place. Show Less

This is prior to the rollbar that I installed with the help of Darryl Bryan on Thursday night.
Here is a... Show more pic of my wheel and tire combo. They are Yokohama 205/50/15's on Volk Racing Group NRS 15 X 7 rims. It has blue tint on the tire, the photo does not really do any justice, you have to see it in the sunlite!
This is my interior right after I installed "sparco" pedals. Show Less
