I just went to Walmart and got some A/C trim/insulation foam. And used some 3M spray adhesive. Also important to note is attach the phone to the speaker frame not any soft/moving parts of the speaker.
I cut the wires because at the time of my installations metra adapters were not available.
Here I redone my post with pictures on my blog. http://moondogg.com/truck/1/
Yes the speakers make a noticeable difference in clarity and volume. Let me find my post I did on my upgrade and I will link it here. http://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/192479-budget-audio-upgrade/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Mine is rated for v6 or smaller and I got it to jump my 5.9 dodge. But the battery was not completely dead. So I would say they work pretty good. [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
MoonDogg replied to tenscourts's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsMy suggestion would be remove the bed rug, line up the bed slide, drill your holes, remove bed slide, reinstall bed rug, poke holes through bed rug from under bed, mount bed slide on top of bed rug. It will take longer but it will line up perfectly. [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

MoonDogg posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsI am looking for the wiring diagram for the front speakers on a NON-Bose System. Not just the color code but the wires and where do they go. Specifically the front door and the front dash how do they connect? Does it go through a crossover? I have looked all over and can't find this. Thanks for any help.
Yes Exactly. as you can see in the pictures the factory speakers has this.. it makes a seal of sorts from the speaker to the door skin. so most/all the sound goes out the door instead of behind the door skin.
Got it from Lowes.. its air conditioner weather stripping and I used loctite spray adhesive (Light 100). On the rear doors I used a razor knife and split it in half and the front I just used it as is, that's why its thicker.
Want to give an update... thanks to Jeff5347 for the idea here are the install pictures of the foam rings.. Rear door speaker Front door speaker
I might... later down the road get a DSP and or amp for the door speakers... I did not do component because i wanted factory look and easy of installation also the reason why I got the SA's because it was the closest in size to factory... btw it's not a perfect fit you got to wiggle it in there and use the screws that come with it because the screws that came out will not work.

Personal preference mostly.. There is an argument for any way to go but here are my reasons.. circle speakers produce a more symmetrical sound. (I know this is subjective take if for what you will) also 6X9's tend to be more expensive. .. 4 Way vs 2 Way In a 4 Way you just get two extra tweeters.. that in almost all cases block the cone of the main speaker which in turn deflects the sound in unintended directions. I think the 4 way is more of a gimmick you know if 2 way is good 4 way must be better.. .and I use to think like that as well. I even have purchased 4 way speakers... but IMHO its not needed. Plus I got a good deal on the 2 pair I bought it was $60 cheaper than crutchfield.
Yeah I was just looking at them on amazon... I got 6.75" also.. so lowes here I come. (home depot is too far away )
