a save money way to do it yourself car speakers installation

There are a lot of steps involved in installing car speakers, especially for the novice mechanic. However, anyone can learn how to install car speakers and save money in the process. The tips mentioned in this article are general in nature, so you need to be aware that not everything mentioned will apply in your car speaker installation. As an example, we will learn how to install car speakers in a Ford pickup’s front door.

First of all, to avoid draining the battery of the car, make sure you disconnect the negative terminal. This will prevent your car from having problems starting later on. It is also a good idea to avoid a potentially costly short-circuiting of your car gps electrical system.

Secondly, make sure you read all the information that came with your new speakers. Familiarize yourself with the various parts included in the box with all the hardware. With a set of full-range speakers, the box will come with two speakers, some speaker wire, speed clips, mounting screws and the much-needed instructions. The box may or may not contain grilles, if it does not, then use the factory ones.

With the installation of component speakers, you’ll also have the tweeters to install, which include mounting hardware and crossovers.
You have to consider where you are going to install your tweeters and the type of mounting you plan on using. The best place for the tweeters is above the woofer. The tweeters should be “aimed” towards the area where your ears will be. This ensures the best possible sound. Never install the tweeters very far from the woofer and it is recommended that it be--at the farthest--one foot from the woofer.

The next thing you need to do is uninstall your current speakers.
You should use a window crank removal tool to pry off the speaker crank cover. Remove all the necessary screws from the door panel and door pull cup. The door pull cup should easily come off now, with maybe just one or two more screws to remove beneath the door pull cup. The door panel should now easily slide off the door. Unscrew and pull out the speaker from its opening. You might need to use a tool to pop off the factory speaker.

Due to the fact that component speaker systems all use external crossovers these divide frequency bandwidths between the woofer and tweeter; you will need to solder the wiring harness to the input wires of the crossover. Cut the wiring harness slide connectors and strip the wires. Then, before twisting them and the wiring harness wires together, place some heat shrink tubing on the wires. Solder the wires and then use a heat gun for melting the heat shrink tubing and protecting the connection.

Next install the woofer and the tweeters. You may have to use special mounting brackets to secure the woofer in place. A tweeter requiring angle-flush mounting requires you drill a hole in the door panel.  Connect the leads from the tweeter and woofer to the crossover using the attached quick slides. Put the door panel back and replace all the needed screws.

You can now enjoy your new sound if you remembered to re-connect the negative terminal back to the battery.
