Installing Rear Speakers 1.4Tdci Zetec

12 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I know my car has rear speaker grills but no actual speakers behind them, I removed the rear door cards on both sides and was surprised to find there is absolutely zero wiring for rear speakers whatsoever. The space is completely empty, and I really wanted to install some rear speakers... (And yes there is a fader option on my stereo)

Am I going to have to go through the ball ache of running wires all through the car to get to the rear doors, or am I missing something? :(

Thanks in advance (:

I'd be surprised if there isn't wires already there.

If not, it's not too difficult to run wires.

Yea zero wires which I found really surprising too...

And I know most people probably wouldn't difficult, but I'm not 'most people' :P

If you would rather connect up rear speakers hassle free then trust a local car audio specialist to stick some in.

Costs a few quid but at least you know that it's all done properly.

I'm a big fan of getting things done on the cheap haha ;)

But would I lose the 2 front tweeters if I wired up rear speakers, or is it possible to configure the default head unit to 6 speakers?

interesting how you have a fader option, what happens when you fade to rear, does the sound go off completely?

Surprisingly enough I haven't tried that! Although I definitely will next time I go out... at the moment I'm just staying indoors and touching myself

But the thing is, I'm just afraid that if the unit is only designed to run 4 speakers, then I'd have to sacrifice 2 at the front?

best kept to oneself :lol:

but no, the tweeters wont go off if you put back speakers on, assuming you have the speakers to fit (you wouldnt put the back speakers on a tweeter feed anyway, as it wouldnt drive the bigger speakers)

Well I installed some new front speakers, FLI FI6's on the advice of a guy at Halfords telling me they're the best 'all rounders' they had, and they're f*****g terrible... absolutely no bass whatsoever.

Guess that was a waste of money, they're worse than the stock ones!

Wak Wak Oops. :blink:

Don't trust those bozos with a broken stick.

By best all rounder he probably actually meant they were the ones that have been gathering dust on their shelves the longest.

Go to a car audio specialist and be guided by someone who actually knows what a decent car set up should sound like.

I just figured since the stock ones are 25W and these ones are 210W, I couldn't really go wrong...

Would they even let me give them back?

Pack them up and take them back.

Tell them they don't fit.
