6x9 Rear Car Speaker Installation: '97-'99 Oldsmobile Cutlass/'97-'03 Chevrolet Malibu
This video will show you how to install 6x9 car speakers in a '97-'99 Oldsmobile Cutlass or '97-'03 Chevrolet Malibu. [NOTE: Due to the amount of comments I have received, I'll state it right here that the song that first played over the speakers was "Yellow" by Coldplay. Thanks to those who have informed me about this; I had just happened to turn to a random station on the radio that day.] This is for a very, very, very homemade basic installation job. For my car, considering that I got it used and it's not worth that much, I wasn't going to put a $500 brand new sound system in my car. However, after one year of driving around with one dead speaker and one touchy speaker (one bounce would knock the sound out, and the next bounce would restore the sound), I decided to take matters into my own hands (And, hey....it's also summer! I want to drive around blasting music out my car windows, too! :P ). And now for instructions.... Tools Needed: * Screwdriver * Scissors * Electrical Tape * Needlenose Pliers * Tweezers * 6x9 speakers Maybe Needed: * Soldering Iron + Solder * Speaker Wire (if not enough available to strip insulation from the factory wiring) Directions (it's also probably in your best interest to disconnect the negative terminal of the car battery prior to beginning the installation job): 1.) Remove speaker cover and unscrew speakers from speaker frame 2.) Lift speaker out of frame and unclip the factory speaker from the wires. 3.) Cut off the factory clip 4.) Strip 1 cm of the wire insulation off of the wires 5.) Test polarity by laying the stripped wire directly on the speaker terminals and turning on the car radio. Clear sound = correct polarity; no sound/crackly sound = incorrect polarity 6.) Crimp on wire clips, making sure that when the wire clip connected to the terminal, that the bare wire touches the terminal 7.) Connect wire clips to wire clip terminals on speakers, then cover with electrical tape to secure the connection 8.) Place speaker in speaker mount without screwing it in and test volume as a final check. 9.) Screw speaker in the mount and enjoy! EDIT 6/20/2014: I sold this car (due to cracked frame/springs, broken tire rod, this 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass had 163,794 miles on it when I sold it) and now upgraded myself to a Honda Fit! Thanks to all that have watched this throughout the years!!! (And to answer the question I keep getting the most, yes I am female and interested in working on my cars!)
