I thought I would post some photos of the install of my component speakers on the front passenger side (swapping out non-Infinity system speaker & tweeter for aftermarket Infinity component speakers.)

1. Popped off the side panel


2. Speaker box and wiring for tweeter are exposed


3. Glovebox removed and the bottom panel popped out


4. Removal of the Speaker box
(2 gold-colored bolts hold the speaker box on the right side (as you face the dash) and one bolt attachs from the bottom (access through the removed area of the bottom panel)


5. Speakerbox



6. Removed the speaker
(there are two (2) connectors - one leading into the speaker box; the other is inside the box, attached to the speaker itself. The internal connector is where the speaker connecters from Crutchfield, etc., is attached.)

7. Stock tweeter "popped" out
(you can carefully pry/pop the tweeter out of its housing)


8. Stock tweeter disassembled


9. Aftermarket tweeter fit perfect (Infinity Kappa series component speakers)


10. Installation of the Crossover
(used Velcro to attach crossover in this area -- however, the crossover was a bit bulkier than the space would allow. I had to remove the cover from the crossover (it just popped off), and then it fit just fine.)


I hope this is helpful for others. I have not installed the speaker on the driver side yet, as I think it will be a bit more time consuming (probably over this coming weekend.) This one speaker, along with the new aftermarket speakers in teh soundbar have already increased the quality of sound over the stock, non-Infinity system. Next project: Alpine IVA-W205 w/ Blackbird GPS head unit swap.

Cool write-up... A buddy of mine replaced his front speakers and said the driver's side is a b*&ch!!! Ha... Good luck... Post pics if you're not cussing too much...

I did the same install with Infinity Reference components. Did you do an amp replacement, or are you just upgrading your existing speakers? If you added an aftermarket amp, it would be very beneficial for you to upgrade your speaker wiring as well. Nice write up! :beer:

Great writeup. Do you have a part number for the Infinity tweeter?
