It's simple - you replace your car speakers because you want your music to sound better. Car makers cut corners when it comes to car speakers, and aftermarket speakers use better materials and superior construction to deliver improved sound. Replacing your old speakers is an inexpensive way to get better sound in your car.
Replacing your car's speakers usually involves removing interior panels (doors, dash, rear dash, etc.), unbolting the factory speakers, using a bracket and wiring harness to install replacement speakers, and then reinstalling your panels. We include instructions for taking apart your car, and our Tech Support staff is always ready to help in case you get stuck.
It depends on how loud you like to listen to music. "Loud and clear" takes more power than "background music" listening levels. Less expensive speakers are designed to sound good with fewer watts of power than more expensive speakers that are designed to sound their best with a lot more power. A new stereo or amp will usually make your speakers sound way better. Want specifics?
Each car is different, and that's why we do so much vehicle research. When you tell us what you drive, we will show you what fits. If you still have your factory radio, you can feel good about choosing from less expensive speakers, as they'll work well with less power. If you use an aftermarket radio or an amplifier, you might want to increase your budget to get speakers that can handle a little more power.
No! Speakers are sold in pairs, and it's common to replace your front speakers first, then later replace your rear speakers. It's a good idea to choose the same brand speakers for front and back, if possible. That way, the tone settings that sound good in the front seat will sound good in the back seat too. Of course, you can replace all your speakers at one time for the most dramatic improvement.
