If an audio system with great sound is important to you, you may not be satisfied with the factory speakers that come with the car. Improving the speakers can be a fairly easy task.
You will need to:
- Car door removers
- Car stereo speakers
- Super glue
- Hair dryer
- Insulating tape
- Multi-purpose screws
- Screwdriver sets
- Cable bends
- Wire stripper
Steps to follow:
1.Read the instructions that come with the speakers.
2.Carefully use the door panel remover to remove the panel. Remove the old speaker from the door.
3.Heat the Dynamat or Accumat with a heat gun or hair dryer, or leave it in the sun to warm up.
4.Spray glue on the metal surface of the door.
5.Peel the back of the Dynamat or Accumat and using the heat gun or hair dryer, heat the material as it is applied to the metal surface.
6.Use a roller and press the material on the metal to join the surface.
7.Place the speaker in the cavity and screw it securely through the Dynamat or Accumat to the metal of the door.
8.Connect the positive cable at the positive opening on the back of the speaker, then connect the negative cable at the negative opening on the back of the speaker.
9.Connect the other ends of the positive and negative wires to the corresponding inputs on the back of the radio.
10.Remove the factory grilles from the back cover to remove the old speakers.
11.Place the speakers inside the openings and connect the cables as you did with the door speakers.
12.Cover all exposed wires with black insulating tape. Replace the louvers on the speakers on the back cover.
13.Put the car panels back in place.
- Each speaker will have two cables, one positive and one negative, one cable will probably have a line on it, you can use this cable both positive and negative, remember what you use it for, and you should make sure you are consistent with the other speakers.
- Avoid passing the speaker wires where the screws or panels can cut them.
- Short screws may not adjust the speakers securely. Use long screws to secure the speakers to the doors.
