2011 GT Front Speaker Swap

What do I need for this?? I saw the links on the "HOW TO", but they dont really mention "SPECIFIC" parts. IDK why you need a harness adapter to swap ONLY the speaker.

Not sure if it's a 5x7 or 6x8 I need and which specific model speaker.

Thanks
RC

I swapped my front speakers, I only needed basic tools and I think some torx bits. It's a pretty straight forward process, I spliced into the factory wiring. I'm going to eventually amp my speakers but routing new speaker wires to the doors seems like it's going to be a pain.

I will get the harness for $10 rather than splice, but what I really needed to know is which harness, and which speakers/model # are compatible with that factory one.

You'll need Metra Harness 72-5600. You can use any 5x7 speaker, it will mount fine. You can also use a 6x8" speaker as well, but you will need to slightly modify the mounting holes, and it will fit right in as well. You just won't use the end mounting tabs.

Running wires into the doors is an absolute nightmare. I suggest either taking the door right off, or paying someone to do that part of the install. The "molex" is a huge pita to get unfastened, and once you do get it undone and drill holes to feed the wires through, (plenty of room, just be careful not to drill into a wire) putting the rubber grommet back onto the molex is equally a nightmare. Then you have to contort and feed the wires up into the subframe of the chassis because the hole where the wires come through is hard to access. But it can be done. You'll need a lot of patience and either no kids around or a quiet voice. Swearing WILL help... Good luck

There is no need to run new wires to the doors. Pull the wire off the old speaker, connect the harness and push the connectors onto your replacement. Screw the speaker into the door mount. Done.
