    I'M PLANNING TO UPGRADE MY DOOR SPEAKERS IN A 2021 RAM PROMASTER 3500 (HAS SPEAKER PANELS THAT SNAP OFF WITHOUT REMOVING DOOR PANEL. MY QUESTION IS SHOULD I CUT A HOLE IN THE FACTORY SPEAKER PANELS AND USE THE SPEAKER GRILL (POLK AUDIO DB651 - BOUGHT SOMETIME AGO BUT NEVER INSTALLED). THE REASON FOR ASKING IS, WOULD THE SOUND QUALITY IMPROVE MUCH WITH NOT HAVING THE FACTORY SPEAKER PANEL OVER IT "SMOTHERING" THE SOUND ? THE POLK GRILLS ARE PRETTY MUCH OPEN, I WOULD INSTALL THEM OVER A 6" HOLE THAT I WOULD PUT IN THE PANELS. THANK YOU

    John, the factory grilles shouldn't alter your sound in a noticeable way, and if you like them, you should definitely keep them in place. If you like the look of the aftermarket grilles better and feel good about the installation, that's up to you. Enjoy your new sound!

    I have a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek that I installed focal coaxials in for the fronte but took the dash tweeters out because they were junk factory. The sound isnt at all what it should be atm. Was wondering if taking the tweeter out is the reason why it sounds so bad. It's all hooked up to an Alpine amp and pioneer deck.

    Adam, if you're accustomed to component speakers, that could be what you're missing. However, it's worth talking to Crutchfield Tech Support before making a switch. They could help you make a correction in your installation or settings that gets you the sound quality you were expecting. If you bought your gear from Crutchfield, you can call Tech Support for free help troubleshooting your system. If you purchased your equipment elsewhere, you can still get expert Crutchfield Tech Support - 90 days-worth for only $30. Check out our tech support page for details.

    It would be great to show a video replacing speakers on a Jeep Wrangler roll bar that need to use a bracket

    Terry, it's worth trying a different cable with your AUX input, just to rule that out. If this is the factory system (and it sounds like the vehicle may still be under warranty if it's 2016?), have your Chrysler dealership take a look.

    Steven, we wouldn't recommend it. It would entail significant alteration of the factory location and fabrication of a mount. Give us a call, and an advisor can help you with alternatives.

    James, you should have received, as an email, a vehicle-specific MasterSheet which will have step-by-step instructions on how to install your speakers. If you didn't, give us a call and we'll resend it to you. If you have any questions during the installation process, your speaker purchase entitles you to free Tech Support. We'll talk you through any trouble you may have.
