Just looking to share pictures and my experience of sound deadening my doors. I spoke to Mr. Marv and had ordered Hybrid Audio speakers, adapters and the RAAM sound deadening material. While speaking to Marv, we determined what was the best course of action for my listening needs. You may choose to add more or less sound deadening material, but I was just trying to make it sound a little better then the crappy stock stuff!
Removing the door panels is very easy and there are plenty of tutorials on how to do so. I disconnected all the harnesses, slid out the door handle, removed the stock speakers and removed the vapor barrier. Cutting off those plastic inserts that Marv talks about are the biggest pain but it's for the best. I also took the time to tear apart some of the wiring in the door, there is lots of clips and tons of electrical tape. I wanted to pull it apart to determine exactly how it was wire for the factory stuff, plus I wanted to clean it up and run it nicely. (You will see in my photo's below.) After completing that, I started to apply the BXT Mat to the outer door. (Note: I was warned to use gloves and chose not to. The Mat will cut up your hands!!) I started behind the speaker and worked my way out. Tapping on the outside of the door until I was satisfied. (Believe me, you will hear the difference!) I then did the speaker opening by covering it up and then slicing into it, folding the pieces inward. (This is documented on Marv's post.) I covered the remaining holes as you will see in the pics. Finally, I cut a piece of the Ensolite foam and did my best to cover the entire door. Again, cutting a hole for the speaker, poking a hole for the wire harness that feeds the windows and poking holes for the screws. (TIP: Leave the screws in the holes before covering with the foam. Then take a knife and cut around them. It's extremely hard to find the holes after covering! The bolts in the door help you find them easier!) Everything else is pretty straight forward. I utilized the stock wiring and hooked up as follows:
Front Left = Pink (+) & Purple (-)
Front Right = Green (+) & Blue (-)
Rear Left = Red (+) & White (-)
Rear Right = Red (+) & White (-)
These were the colors I had in my 2013 truck, hopefully they are correct. I was told it doesn't matter, just as long as they are done the same. (But I am not an expert.)
This was the first time I ever did sound deadening before, it's not the prettiest job but it seems to work! The Hybrid speakers are amazing and blow away the stock ones. (Especially the highs!!) Marv was extremely helpful and is a pleasure to work with!
Feel free to ask questions, I will do my best to answer them.
