New Component Speakers
I just recently purchased new MB Quart FSA 216 Component speakers for my 98′ Dodge Dakota. I had a blown left speaker and figured why not upgrade my whole system. I am really new to the whole car audio scene and would love some info on installing this new system in my truck. There are factory tweeter locations and mid location in the door pannel. Anything to pandora jewelry be wary of when installing component speakers for the first time? Also will i need anything else for the install. I have a factory stereo/head unit, do i need new speaker wire, amp or any of the add ons that don’t come in pandora jewelry the box. Please let me know any and all information in this matter would help.
If your installing the head unit, you will need an adapter harness from the truck to the new pandora jewelry unit. this way if you sell the truck and want to keep the unit you can, also you will not void the warranty witch is all but over I’m sure. Be sides that you should be set, not certain if there is a factory amp hang on, here you go 1998 Dodge Dakota Stereo Information
it would not matter if he had an amp or not, he is just replacing the door speakers with a set of components. Heres what you do:
remove thedoor panel, remove old speaker, find a place for the cross over, the existing speaker wire goes the the input of the cross over, the “woofer” output goes to your new speaker and the “tweeter” output goes to the tweeter. For optimul results place the tweeter within 18″ of the woofer. Normal placement is on the door above the woofer, or up by the mirror on the inside if room permits. The only additional work that may be needed woul be a mount for the tweeter, but that entails cutting the door (1″ hole) to accept the tweeter mounts.
So they arrived today and sure enough i made my first attempt. to no avail. There are no crossovers in my stock system. I pulled the door panels off. removed my tweeter and mid and sure pandora jewelry enough no crossover. Also my stock set up woofer cables were not compatible with my new MB Quart woofer. I was under the impression that all i had to do was swap out old woofer and tweeter with the new ones. Please if there is another way about it, I would much rather install the new stuff myself. I would be a good project as well as learn how to do it.
