Well it's not every day that I have a stereo-related question, but I do today.

I currently have my front door trims off (because I am having trouble putting them back on... argh so embarrassing) and came close to seizing the opportunity to upgrade my stock front 4" speakers for new ones. Obviously I would not be using the covers that come with the speakers because they would be covered by the grille of the door trims.

My question is this: is there the possibility that the speakers will not fit under the trims? We are talking about 2 way speakers, which have a little tweeter mounted on top. Any assistance appreciated...

dude,

theres about an inch of clearance in front of the speaker to the grill. most tweeters stick out 5mm to 10mm max from the basket of the speaker - in other words, you should have no problems (i didnt).

as for the door trim, try it with the windows down - and line up the black lip for the window edge before attempting to push it down. check the clips underneath to get an idea how it stays on...

I know what you're going through with those door trims ILS, I have had the same problem countless times. They're easy as pie to take off, but seem to be really hard to put back on. It can get really frustrating. :mad:

I upgraded my front door speakers and they just screwed straight in. No problems at all. I will be upgrading again soon, but may hold off on them and see if I can get someone to install splits in the doors instead.

My mate bought a pair of JVC 4" speakers and they had this weird thing in the middle that hit the grill, but as long as you dont buy those speakers u'll be right. I got a pair of Sony Xplod Dual cones and thought they'd do the same thing but there's heaps of room

Re: Door Trims

the best way i found to get the dorr trim back on was to take the cover for the side mirror off from the inside..then literally sliding it into palce fro mthe top..at an agnle..then push it all down and screw in the screws around the edge
