Just passed your test. Why not upgrade the shabby car speakers for a better kind. After all, although you are road safe with our training we all realise that there are times we want a bit of good quality music whether in a traffic jam or trying to charm that perfect person.
Here are our quick tried and tested steps;
Disconnecting the old wiring: Before you install the new speakers, you need to remove the panels and grills on the old speakers. Best to take a picture at each step in case you get confused. Once you have disconnected and take a picture lets go on.
Get new Wiring: If you’re replacing an old car stereo speaker in order to complete your car stereo installation, you can use the factory wiring; however, if you’re installing a speaker in a new location that did not previously have one installed, you will need new wiring. Running new wire can be a difficult task and should best be left to professionals. The new wiring must be properly grounded to prevent short circuits and unwanted engine noises.
Wiring: colour-code and check you are okay with your electronics module in physics. You either need to purchase a harness to convert the factory plug to one that will fit your new speakers, or you will need to remove the factory plug (this usually means cutting it out), and attach the wire ends directly to the speakers.
Soundproofing: Consider installing soundproofing material while you have the interior panels removed. Soundproofing material can enhance your experience by reducing road noise.
Reconnect the Wiring: Once the speaker is wired in, screw it together.Make sure you install the soft gasket between the speaker and the metal of the car to prevent undesirable noises
Test: for a short whole before attaching everything in place. Then upload your picture here.
