    I can say that the one's we have in our cars at work are plug and play. I've already replaced one cause someone messed up the face of one. It's just a base model though.

    That's good to know. The radio menu has a way to unlock it or some such.

    Aside from that, the stock speakers are already pretty light.
    A friend of mine is a big fan of Pontiac Fiero seats because speakers are built into them. I doubt putting Fiero seats in a Mirage would save any weight though.

    There are tons of bluetooth speakers designed to fit in cupholders (and that handy 3rd cupholder). But I don't think anything beats that visor clip thingy.

    The "Kove Commuter" was what I had in mind specifically

    FWIW, this appears to be exactly the same product for about $30 less:

    BÖHM Impact

    If it fits the cup holder properly... I kinda like it better than the visor option.
    Simplify and add lightness.
