Has anyone replaced the door and dash board speakers?? How difficult is the door panel to remove?? What size is the speaker in the dash??

The the million dollar question... Has anyone ran aftermarket wiring into the doors to amplify their door speakers???

I'm working in doing a full system for a stereo company to try some of their new products, and might be spending the weekend installing a new head unit, running RCA, speaker cable and installing a few other gizmos... any help would be a great time saver!

They really should have just made the JBL package available globally. I don't know why they felt this option wouldn't be popular outside of the UK. Rewiring everything is a little too involved for me.

Don't think we've seen anyone go the extent of replacing all of the C-HR speakers yet. Are you planning on keeping the stock door speakers and just amping them? I'm curious if a lack a power is what's holding back the stock system.

I am going to be installing a 5 channel amp.... channels 1 and 2 will run new speakers in the dash, channels 3 and 4 will run new speakers in the front doors. Channel 5 will run 2 sub-woofers in the back. 😀

Holy cow, that's a lot of aftermarket speakers. Not really one to do these large modifications but you're definitely going to need that plastic prying tool. :D Maybe even the wiring diagram from the C-HR service manual.

I have never replaced the doors or the dashboard speakers on my cars because I have a friend who works in auto service and he has the experience, skills, and knowledge to do all these things by himself. Having said that, I don't think it is a very difficult task to deal with if you have the right tools. The thing is I didn't quite understand how could we really help you but I suppose you've solved it already. I would like to get an update from you on this. I'm thinking about buying an under seat subwoofer for my car, and I read this buyer's guide from https://atfulldrive.com/best-under-seat-subwoofer, but I would love to hear any ideas from you, guys.

I replaced all the OEM speakers with Kenwood speakers. The door panels were easy to remove, but putting them back on were interesting as there were rubber inserts - especially the back doors (IIRC). The dash tweeters I had to re-use the factory plug as it tied to the front door speakers. I have some soldering skills.
The front door tweeters are held in with glue from a glue gun.
I have not installed an amp, yet.

I'll be replacing my front speakers w/JBL GTO609c & the rear with Polk Audio DB652. In regards to the tweeter, I purchased a set of Red Wolf tweeter adapters. I'm assuming one end goes to the factory plug, while the other ends connect to the actual tweeter. Is this basically what you did, with the soldering replacing the need for any aftermarket tweeter adapters?

Thank You

Thanks, guys your advice helped me a lot to change my door speakers. That was a very hard mission for me because I have never done something like this and I had very little knowledge about it. Fortunately, we live in the 21 century and we have access to a very big base of information and forums like this that can help you very much to learn something new. Also, I found a site with good reviews for beginners that saved me, I learned a lot of new stuff from there and I found out how to improve my car's audio system. You have it here 10 Best 5 Channel Amp Reviews 2020 - Beginner Friendly Guide you can check it if you are curious.
