    Speaker Sizes

    Hello everyone,
    First off....whats up with the search? I click on the search function, and the entry box pops up, but when I move my mouse to enter text, the dialogue box disappears!! ARGH!!!!

    Anyways, what are the speaker sizes for the front door, tweeter and rear door? Crutchfield, Best Buy, etc all seem to have different information. I want to upgrade my speakers, but I'm not sure of the correct sizes.

    Thanks!

    6.5"s in front, 1" tweets and 4" in the back. You just have to be careful of the mounting depths on the speakers. This is a place where they show you step by step to make all depths work and 5.25" in the back doors work.

    The writeup doesnt mention the Metra speaker harness adapters being reversed. Suppose it doesnt matter as long as all 4 doors are done using the same pattern.

    also, you should spray a coat of paint on the MDF adapters before you bolt them up. To seal them from moisture and water over years that will wreck MDF and make it expand.

    This doesn't have a damaging effect on the speaker?

    no.

    it just decides if the speaker goes IN or OUT on each beat/phase.

    Wouldn't that effect sound quality? Like, make it sound like you're on the wrong side of the speaker?

    I just found this article about it, easy fix for most people with an amp though, should be able to just swap the wires at the amp.

    Another thing to be careful of is that some speakers with large woofer travel can hit the inside of the door panel/speaker cover. I ran into this with my Alpine R series speakers. You need to either cut out the factor speaker covers or shim the door panel so it isn't clipped in on the bottom stock mounting points. Take some MDF and make a few pieces with holes in them to put long sheet metal screws through and attach the bottom of the door panel that way with the shims in between the door and door panel. Hope that makes sense...

    Speakers operate on alternating current. As long as ALL speakers are wired the same way, they will all resonate on the same phase and sound fine. However, if just 1 speaker is wired wrong - you will hear it as it will sound terrible.
