Why bother with 3
cylinders when 6

If the rear interior assembly is the same as a 147 then to reomove that speaker you'll need to dismantle quite a bit. The seat belt retaining rail down on the floor needs to come out so that you can remove the sill trim, then you can get access to remove the B pillar trim and then follow by removing the rear seat base and then the rear quarter panel trim....then you can get to the speaker. It's very straight forward but fiddly as there are several hidden clips which are plastic, brittle and easy to snap.
You may be able to get away with removing less trim, but I removed the lot when I needed to get access to the the rear quarter as I didn't want to force or damage anything. Once you're in there you'll be able to confirm that it's the speaker causing the issue and replace it.
On the other hand, if you didn't want to take the trim apart, or if you are only intending on disconnecting the speaker rather than replace it, you could simply shift the 'fade' to the front speakers and eliminate the rears totally.
Unimpressed by cars with less than 4 cylinders or below 1600cc.....and don't get me started on hybrids
