Speaker installation

Postby kian96 » Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:07 am

Planning on ordering some new speakers for my CRX. I'm trying to decide whether or not to pay for in-store installation. Is installing new speakers pretty straightforward? I'd rather not pay an extra 65 dollars to have people install the speakers if I could just mess around and figure it out myself.

if you have ever done the install yourself do it. Both times ive had to do it the rear one had brackets so i lucked out. you may need some sheet metal n sheers or find the brackets. 6.5" works just make sure its shallow without any giant tweeter sticking out the center. If you have upgraded the headunit id recommend gauging up the wires they are terrible.

Save your money on speaker install.
It's pretty straight forward.
Remove two screws on each speaker cover, remove speaker cover, screw in new speakers.

5.25 or 6.5's up front and 6.5's in the rear.

You can use this for basic reference.

and this...

Just be sure you get shallow mount speakers for up front. If the magnet on the back is too big, you'll have to cut the back section of the factory speaker basket(which holds the speaker into the door) out in order for it to clear. Or if you do that and your speaker magnet is really big, you may not be able to roll down the window.
Shallow mount front speakers will make life easier.

Go ahead of time and take the covers off, especially if you've never done this before, get a feel for what you're looking at before you go tearing into this.
But overall it is pretty easy and self explanatory.
