Door Mounted Tweeter Install Write-up

This is one of my first write-ups so bare with me.

This is for 05 and up Tacomas. This one is an 06.

I looked around and haven't seen anyone else with tweeters here, and i thought, why not?

So i figured i would try it.

Time: about a hour and a half if you take your time.

Tools: drill, hole saw, wire cutters, screw driver

Supplies: tweeters, zip-ties, glue, electrical tape, (beer?)
And i was tired of my tweeters looking like this:


I started out and removed this:


I then got a 1 and 3/4" hole saw and cut a hole in it:


I cut the center of the hole here:


Since I already had a wire ran up to the top of the windshield, where the tweeters were, i used the same wire to pull through the door up to the tweeter. i removed the kick panels and door panels (the directions to remove the door panel are on here somewhere) I ran the wire through this rubber hose with the factory wires to the mirrors, window switches, etc. :


I then cut a slit in the thin plastic on the door and pulled the wire through it:


Then I secured the wire to the power mirror wires with zip ties:


Then I hooked up the tweeter and test fit it:


I did have to trim the back of the tweeter mount for clearance:


Another test fit and it was perfect.

Be sure when putting the panels back in place to not pinch any wires.

Then I replaced all the panels popped everything back in place. and I was done. Much better i think.


The other side is pretty similar so i only did the write-up on the driver's side..

A picture of the things i used:
