For you truck owners, you'll want to know how to install speakers in trucks. Trucks have their own challenges because they don't have nearly as much room as a car does to install speakers in. This is especially true since cars have trunks that often are utilized for sub-woofers, amps, and the like.
Tools or materials you may need:
- Allen wrenches
- Cordless Drill
- Wire Cutters/Strippers
- Wire nuts or crimps
- New Speakers
- Sub-woofer boxes
- Start by looking at what you already have. For example, if your truck doors have 6×9 speakers in the door panels, then it's a good idea to pick out speakers that sound better, but are the same size. Installation will be much easier this way.
Remove the speaker grill by prying it off with a screwdriver.
Remove the speaker screws with the cordless drill.
Unhook the wires and remove the old speakers.
- In some cases, you may have to remove your door panel. Some door panels come off by loosing screws or clips, while others may need the help of a professional. This is especially true if your truck has lots of electronics in the door panel.
- Install the new speaker in the reverse order. Be sure to check and see if it works before you close everything up.
- Sub-woofer boxes are available just for trucks. They will have to be spliced into your rear speakers if you have them. If not, you will have to run speaker wire from the sub to your deck and splice in there. You may need to get professional help with installing sub-woofers and amps.
If you start with the speakers you already have, then learning how to install speakers in your truck will be a breeze to do.
