It's generally pretty easy. Pull the panels covering the speakers, unbolt the old ones, bolt the new ones in, and wire them up.

There was an 8 page thread here with detailed instructions and lots of feedback on speakers and vendors. But you can only search a year bak, so it maty be gone. I bought speakers from another site that was 30% less than Crutchfield - who gave me bad advice.

If you have speakers in the rear doors, there is a plastic shield over top. If you cut the lip of the shield off, almost any speaker will fit.

I replaced the fronts with speakers with built-in tweeters and disconnected the ones by the mirrors (if you have them).

I bought a double DIN AM/FM/WB/CD/Cassette unit from a newer Subaru on eBay, brand new $160. Plenty are being yanked out of WRX's so you can get them even less as takeouts.

Generally, up front you might need spacers to fit an aftermarket speaker with a larger magnet.
