Depends on how your's is set up but my door speakers were subs only, so you won't get full range sound if that is the case with you. Also need to check pos and neg polarity; just switch the wires and see if that helps. if not, you're amp is probably just pushing subwoofer frequencies to the doors.So when I installed my new speakers in the doors, I wanted to verify if they turned on, and sure enough they did, but barely any sound came out, is this normal? the stock ones did this too. Am doing something wrong, is my stock deck busted? Please help!
The door mounts have to be modifed to fit nearly all aftermarket replacements. I used my Dremel to cut away the drip shields. The JBL P963's that I installed this weekend were ever so slightly larger like your Rockford Fosgates, but there was enough give in the plastic door mount that I was able to force the Torx screws in no problem.I just got thru installing a pair of
Rockford Fosgate PRIME R169X3 6"x9"
Car Speakers in my 2009 SE front doors.
They were slightly too big and did not fit into the speaker adapter plate.
The Prime R169x3 6"x9" speakers fit a 5.93" x 8.59" oval hole. Too big.
I had to do some major trimming on the adapter plate and even when
I got the speaker to sit flush with the adapter plate, the mounting holes
for the speakers did not line up with the holes on the adapter plates.
I ended up gluing the speakers to the adapter plates with some RTV silicone glue.
I killed two birds with one stone. Adhesion and vibration resistance between
the speaker to adapter plate interface. Those suckers are stuck on there good.
A better choice would have been the Punch P1692 6"X9" SPEAKERS.
They fit in a 5.77" X 8.51" oval hole. Just right for the Challenger
speaker adapters for the door speakers. Live and learn.
Most speaker manufacturers have the measurement data for
download before the purchase. Do your homework before buying.
I also went thru 5 SQ Ft of DynaMat Xtreme covering the inside
of the plastic door panels and the metal parts of the door.
Now to remove the dash panel and install some
Rockford Fosgate R1T-S 1" Dome Car Tweeters
in the 3.5" dash speaker locations.
After thats all wrapped up, I will focus on the rear package shelf speaker replacement.
I will be removing the OEM speakers for close measurements BEFORE ordering the new rear speakers.
I figured you were not a Challenger owner for a while. But I want to thank you for showing me how to take the panel off the right way. I used your thread to be able to change out the weatherstrips that cracked shortly after I got my car. I did it right and for 4 years now, it's still good. Thanks again and I'm sorry your not a Challenger owner anymore but hey, maybe in the future you will.Wow I didn't realize this thread was still active. I'd figure it would have been replaced by now but I guess I did a better job than I expected. You have a PM btw HemiKing
Now I'll make a confession...I actually haven't had my challenger since late 2010. I was having issues with Chrysler cealers doing work on my car and I finally got fed up and traded the car for something else. The car was literally shaking at highways speeds and the 3 dealers all said everything was fine. This admittedly was during the whole bankruptcy deal so I can't say that this is a current issue, or even an issue outside of my area, so don't judge your service on my experience. One of these days I might try and get a Challenger again. I prolly can afford an SRT8 now. Maybe if they'd bring back the green color (I know they offered it for a time)...
