    You'll have to take the dash panel off. Im guessing yours is the same as mine so it a big piece and it goes around the stereo+vents+the steering wheel. You'll need to put it in 1 to get the piece off. If you didnt put the stereo in yourself, then im not sure what you would do. I got an aftermarket mounting bracket for the new radio that just has a pin on each side you pull down and it just slides out. On my alpine there are RCA ports on the back for all the speakers. Not sure about pioneer but thats how my alpine is. As for the sub, i'd just check out shallow mount(thin) subs that dont take up as much room. JL Audio has one thats a 13 inch.

    I really recommend JL Audio. They are great.

    this is it. its a 12 inch and not too shallow. its a piece but better than just sitting around. i have a tow stowage plastic cover i can take off that will give me a little more room
