I just replaced all my speakers this weekend. Simple as taking the door panel off and unscrewing the speaker and poppin the new one in... may be a connection issue somewhere else though and not the speaker....

As a matter of fact my passenger door isn't working after I just put new ones in and I think its actually the connection to my deck instead of the speaker.

I always thought you had to make a custom mount for door speakers when ever you put new ones in

I used this guide:

http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=143

I suggest getting a door panel tool, basically a wide flathead screwdriver with a space in the middle for going around the tabs. I used a regular flathead, and broke a few tabs along the way.

Also, the speaker size is 5x7. You can fit 6x8 as well.

The main problem is the magnet on the stock speaker is small and if you throw in aftermarket speakers, the bracket or magnet will likely require trimming of the stock speaker mount. I'm still driving around with no drivers door speaker
