Re: How the hell did people run new speaker wires into the doors???

Ok, I figured out how to run my wire through. On the plastic clip I trimed off one of the tabs and some of the plastic, so now the wire fits right in there and does not effect installing the clip and boot back. I def did not like the idea of just splicing into the factory speaker wiring so I made it work.





I cant believe no one else thought of this, and half-assed it splicing into factory wiring. Lol. j/k

Re: How the hell did people run new speaker wires into the doors???

If anyone is going to do this, to remove that grey plastic clip/harness I used an O-ring puller, reached around to the back side of the clip and pressed the tip against the tabs while pulling then I did the front facing ones. I cut the tabs with a set of wire cutters, first prying them outwards with the tip of the O-ring puller to grab them.

Re: How the hell did people run new speaker wires into the doors???

yea, but look at that big fat current carrying speaker wire I have now, f-ing fantastic. Haha. I would not feel I did my best splicing into factory, dunno, I said at the beginning I was doing all new and i'll be damned if I dont follow thru.

And im hurrying, I keep popping on when im getting another beer, so I guess you can see im well into my 12 pack already. lol
