Learn to Install Car Speakers

We have surely all been either walking down the street or sat in our homes when some guy in a newly-retooled car drives past with their stereo on playing extremely loud, bass-heavy renditions of anything from Run DMC to Abba. No-one really wants to be that guy – although there is some humor in playing Abba at full volume to an entire town – but a good sound system can deliver music at high volume that will fill the car with quite agreeable sound while not irritating every other person within a one-mile radius of the vehicle.

Installing the speakers yourself can allow you to take every consideration into account. Not only this, but it could well save you a bit of money into the bargain. So as long as you make sure you are well informed before you set to work, there is really no reason why you should not at least consider setting up your in-car speaker system yourself. It is really the best way of getting the set-up you want at a price that is agreeable to your wallet, and having the information close at hand should anything go wrong with your set-up and need repairing.

The good news is that the woofers in any new speaker pack should fit straight into the locations already in place for those that came with the car. The tweeters, however, will usually require custom installation, and this is where you will have to either be brave and prepare yourself for some mildly fiddly installation work, or admit defeat and take your car to the garage to ask the mechanics there to do the work. If you have a little bit of confidence, though, it is perfectly manageable to do it yourself.

You will need to do a little bit of taking apart, but nothing that will affect the running of the car – indeed, it is all stuff that is easy to put back together again. What you need to do is work out the locations of the speakers that are currently in your car – these are usually in the door and in the boot – and then access these by using the door panel popper to remove the door panel. Remove the old speakers, and wire up the new ones, remembering to match positive wire to positive outlet, and do the same with the negatives. When putting your new speakers back into the door cavity it is wise to pack it in with a sound dampening add-on like Dynamat, which will lessen any excessive vibrations (this is the part that noise polluters often forget!)

Repeat the process for any speaker that needs replacing, but take great care when you are removing and replacing speakers. Take care not to break any of the old ones, and not to make your installation system too haphazard as there may come a time when you are selling the car and want to reinstall the old speaker system – either because you want the bespoke one for your new car, or because the old one might appeal more to potential buyers.
