Step 1: The most important thing to do before you begin car speakers installation is to read the instructions for your specific car speakers.
Step 2: Remove the door panel and grill covering the old speakers. For that you need to first remove the door panel popper.
Step 3: Using the appropriate screw drivers, unscrew the old speakers and disconnect all the attached wiring. Once the old speakers are disconnected, carefully pull them out from their mountings.
Step 4: Your new car speakers have to be installed now in place of the old ones. If you are planning to use the same old factory wiring for your new speakers, the task is extremely simple.
Step 5: Using a blow dryer or a heat gun, warm the Dynamat for installation onto the door. Apply and adhesive to the door surface where you want to install the speaker. Peel off the back of the Dynamat and install it to the surface of the door. Use a roller to press the material onto the surface to ensure a tight bond.
Step 6: Connect the speaker harness to your new speakers, carefully attaching the right terminals. Solder or crimp the wire connections as your installation requires. Set the speaker in the opening and reinstall it to the mounting. Test your new speakers by playing the music system.
Step 7: If they are working fine, it is time to put everything back! Replace the grill by fitting the screws carefully and also the door. Your new car speakers are now installed and ready to play loud!
