Getting the Wheeling Fever
My kids killed the sub-woofer in my XLS. I have gone to 3-4 stero stores to get it replaced. They want to put in a speaker that's the size of my tire!!! I just want to get it back to stock (or close). The Stealer showed me the parts diagram and it shows a 20w 20cm speaker. I'm guessing that that should be an 8" round? They want $123 for it.
Any guidance on this and, is it hard to replace??

Good question. Can you get a copy of the printout showing the speaker location along with how it's disasembled? Alternatively it's possible the 03 Factory Service Manual(FSM) has an illustration. Worth downloading from mitsubishilinks.com to check if it's there.

Then you can tell if it would be easy to replace.

Need a Spot
My '01 Limited had a blown subwoofer speaker when I got it. You have to remove the plastic interior panel to get to it. It wasn't difficult, just a bit tedious. I didn't need a manual, although you can get the procedure easily enough by googling this. Basically, I had to remove the left side of the rear floor to get at the attachments for that panel. It was simply a matter of just following the fasteners and experimenting a bit.

The speaker itself had a torn cone. You could pull it out and then try to match a replacement, but mine was easily repaired and my fix has lasted several years with no problems.

I could tell you more, but suddenly I am run over by a truck.
