New speakers
« on: June 22, 2016, 08:43:08 am »
As I stated in my cab soundproofing post I installed new Infinity speakers when I had the door panels off.  I have now fine tuned the radio and I can tell you the sound quality has been significantly improved.  The Infinity speakers (model # 6832cf) are and exact match to the Ford OEM ones, they come with a build in adjustable tweeter and have great base sound.   Amazon sells them for $99.00 and I would suggest you get the little plug adapters for another $7.00 for the pair so you do not have to cut anything.  There is a super Youtube video that shows how to get the panels off and install the new speakers easily.  There are only 4 screws holding the door panel on and it then lifts up and out, I would suggest you might want to purchase a pry tool from a local automotive store ($7.00) for use on the  power window panel that utilizes those little fasteners, the tool just makes the job so much easier.   best of luck, it is worth the hour of labor for sure.   Ron G.

Interesting post RonG.  We listen to our Ford dash radio playing CDs often when on the road and I agree with you in that the sound quality could be better.  Your solution seems easy & affordable.  I especially like the simple no-mod replacement they offer.

I need to research if our older door panel design of 2007 uses the exact same speaker & connector as the current-day 2009 to 2016.

Thank you!

There are adapters for the older E-350-450 as well as the new models just order the right one.  Very easy installation.  Go for it!  Ron G.

How about the rear speakers above the bed, has anyone swapped those out?
