The duosound item is that little box mounted on the back that has the 
headphone jacks on either side.  I believe it only works with a stock radio, 
but if you are putting a Blaupunkt in you may still be able to use it.  I 
just disconnected it... Have no need for it.

The speaker mounting problem is where you can get creative.  I am not sure if 
you are willing to cut your car, but the metal in the rear deck is fairly 
soft, you could just enlarged the holes in the metal. I prefer to use the 
stock speaker covers but you could cut the fiberboard as well and use the 
after market grill covers....   One of the things you can do for ideas is 
pick up one of the car audio magazines....
