Installing extra speakers

Post by Vanmandan »

Hello you lovely lot,

Speaker question...

I upgraded my front door speakers on my Caddy start line at the weekend, I have no speakers in my dash but the kit came with them. Has anyone got any guidance on how i fit these? splice into the loom somewhere? Also, I have some 6X9s for the back id like to install but again, I need to know where to cut and install.

Any help would be amazing, thank you

Happy to post an "how to" thread after installation if anyone is interested.

The easiest place to splice in for the tweeters is on the back of the A-pillar socket.

I’m also interested in a rear location point for some 6x9s? But other than the space behind/under the seats I’m not sure where to look at/attempt! I’d love to know if you come up with a solution!

you can get a loom for the back of the stereo that has breakout wiring for tweeters and rear speakers. might be easier that splicing, depending how far you are going with the install (i.e. removing trim and sound deadening).
using plenty of dynamat style sound deadening massively improved my sound quality, so worth thinking about

so my plan is to put them behind the rear seats in the ply cut outs if that makes sense? already ran the wires, just need to trace wires

Well your 6x9s are not going in the dash. No room. Get some speaker boxes then and mount them in the rear foot we’ll be hind the seats as you suggested.

Others have roof mounted some.
