I saw that its been said that 3.5” would fit into the center speaker spot… well I didn’t have a 3.5” but I had a 5” speaker.
Also for those with the D 450 watt system the center speaker says it is 2ohm.. I have read some saying it was a 4 ohm system.

The two metal clips slide off; take them off as you will use them on the speaker.

This just shows that the EOM speaker is rated at 2ohm.

With pliers or a Gerber tool cut away a peace of the plastic ring as you can see it sets right into place an dose no damage to the speaker. Just take your time on this part an it be ok.

There is a lot of room in this area so you can turn the speaker sideways and the right side up and its setting inside the hole.

On this speaker as you can see there is a lip going around it as you are thinking (ok it’s in there but how do you pull it up to bolt it into place) how? So with the Gerber or pliers grab one corner pull it up on an angle and tighten the screw slightly so it holds into place and do the same on the other side took me about 5 min on this part so not that hard as you can see a shaved a little bit away from the opening that was it won’t hit the foam of the speaker.

Then set the cover back down on it and you’re done, I was impressed with some tones that I hear now whereas I didn’t hear before


I can’t wait to do 6.5” from the rest of them!!!

freakin' awesome!! I would really like to replace the stock speakers with something a little nicer. The stock system sounds quite good in my opinion but I feel like it could be better with the 450w capability.

I still can't believe the stock sub is not more powerful, 20 stinkin' watts.. :/ I like it but it needs just a little bit more to be 'perfect' in my opinion..

Yeah, the subwoofer is a little on the weak side.

But I really dont want to run wiring to add a 10" and a box taking up my trunk space...............

You think the stock 450W will put an 8" subwoofer or a 10"??

you really have to get some good speakers if you want to upgrade from the dimension stockers. I tried some off the shelf Sony explode coaxial 6.5s and Kicker coaxial 6.5s returned both of them back to the store the same day. I have not yet received my Alpine components , but I expect that they will sound good. Ironically you typically lose bass response with aftermarket upgrades but gain a bit more tweets. I will be leaving the rear doors and center stock to blend all the freQ so that I can get the full range of sound I want w/ a pair of 12's to top it off. Install and Pics coming soon.

I think the mids and highs sounds fine in the car already, it's just lacking a little on the base.

I think a 10" or 12" would do the trick on it.
