Rear Speakers

Original rear speaker:

Completely removed and replaced with polyethylene cover and butyl tape:

Original speaker weight is 229 g. (including wiring up to the door connector and fastenings):

Be honest, I expected much more... but we have what we have.

Replacement weight is 20 g. only (polyethylene + butyl):

Note #1: I did only one side (left) for now, will replace righ side next time.

Note #2: Also, removed some insulation, but don't count it for now. I will weight all the removed insulation some time later.

Total weight reduction with this fix: 0.209 kg.
