How easy is it to replace front speakers?

Recommended Posts

Just one of them is working. Wondering if I can replace them on my own and spare me the hustle.

Need some quality sound for motivation.

There are no back speakers (don't care at the moment)

Very easy. Just find the bolts to get the plastic trim off and the speakers are screwed / bolted to that. I think the wiring is just spade connectors, but it might be soldered.

Thanks Westie,

I suppose taking of the plastic cover won't brake something else.

I ll give it a shot.

Pointless changing them imo they are is the worst position ever best off trying to custom make door pods and put them there instead. I changed mine out for alpine replacements years ago and they are still crap in the oem position.

Best thing you can do is put something on the rear shelf

Is there any actual step by step video guide out for ep91? Eg. Run wires, cut holes in the back self or doors.

Can I give it shot or just go to the appropriate workshop?

I just did the ones in the mrs glanza, was a piece of piss 2 small screws and 2 10mm screw bolts..

 

but as says the 4” speakers are seriously pants, I just bought some vibe replacements from Halfords and some 6x9s worked out around £48..

mine didn’t have the rear speaker wire, so just bought 10m of wire cost £3, and just ran it behind the rear 1/4 and plastic running board, then up along the plastic under the steering wheel..

took around 30-45 minutes.

think I’m going to look at cutting and fitting some 6” speakers into the door where the pocket is.

this is the only picture I took

Ok so I made a first step and removed passengers cover to see what is what. Although I am skilled in computers I am afraid to touch almost anything in a car that I don't know about. Especially when it comes to voltage etc.

I can at least try and replace these which is a cheap solution for starters. Thinking of Sxe-1025s Alpine 10cm 4'

I might need your help on connectors.

If all goes well I ll need your advice on how to properly run cables to the rear and cut holes for better speakers.

the speaker will have a + and - on it, just cut off the connector and solder the wires to your new speaker :D

Any solution that does not require any soldering? 😅

You can get adapters that plug onto those connections to avoid soldering.
