no no no ... I don't want coaxials ... they are not good quality enough for me.

I want 3 separate ways speakers like this one :

I know that we can find for some car models prefrabirqued adapters to door panel to put the third speaker of a 3 separate way kit. But I don't know if that exists for Celica

It's possible, as I told, I can't write english very well smile

But I would like to buy these mounts and not to do them myself (I don't know how, I don't have time to, and the result will not be very "pretty"). That's why I'm searching on internet

Those focals are what's called component speakers. Basically you have the 6 1/2 inch speaker carries your mids and lows and the separate tweeter carries your highs (hope I'm not being too remedial). I have components in my Celica but they are Kickers, which have the option to mount the tweeter in the middle of the 6 3/4 (in my case) so it acts like a coaxial speaker. But you could if you want to mount the tweeter in the door where the factory tweeter is now. The focals should come with some mounting hardware and it could be done yourself or any self respecting sound shop should be able to install something like that in your Celica.

I know that but you dont understand me ... you are speaking about a 2 way speaker (coaxial or component)... but y want to buy a 3 way kit ! (1 tweeter, 2 speakers 6 1/2 ! (one for middle frequeces and one for lower frequences)) ...

But as you know you only can mount 1 speaker (not telling about tweeter) in a Celica's door and not 2 !

The Focals that you can found here (http://www.focal.tm.fr/gb/car/k2power/165k3p.htm) have 2 speakers and 1 tweeter FOR EACH DOOR

You can use a three way set up in your car but it will be allot of work. I just installed a two way component set and it took some work. First you can mount the 6.5" midbass in the door but you will need to build .75" MDF speaker baffles because focal are depth. You can also mount the tweeter in the door in the factory location. The problem will be the midrange driver you will have to build kick panels down by your feet. This will be allot of work so if you are not up to it just go with a nice two way component set.

You can see some of my install pics at my site

Here is a pic of some custom kick panels (southsyde)
