the rears are not worth changing, their size and location are the problem.
The are ok for rear fill
the fronts are easy but it appears you are not smart enough to figure it out
on your own, so maybe its time to buy speakers at the stereo store and have
them install them.
LOL, it is not being honest, it is you being an asshole. Why couldn't you
just answer the question like the other poster did. Is it that you don't
know or is it more along the lines of you whining because you feel that
business is being taken away from you?
If at first you don't succeed, you're not cut out for skydiving

There is a few push clips on the door panels.
Just pull out on the bottom.
Changing the speakers won't do much if you have an infinity system. The
radio is only preamped. Speakers have the amp right on them.
Speaker replacement is definitely a DIY project.
I replaced the fronts (infinity system) (when they failed) on my Dodge 1998
RAM quad cab.
Make certain whatever you buy fits. They should be no deepr than 3 1/4".
Replacement speakers I used are: Pioneer TS-A6970R 6"x9" 3-way Speakers
These sound great.
To remove the front door panels.
1. Roll window down
2. Remove 2 philips head screws in door handle pocket.
3. Then starting from the lower front door pull out on the panel. Panel is
held in by replaceable plastic clips (available at Autozone). Once you get
the first clip out the others come out easier. Once all the clips are out
pull up on the panel.
4. Disconnect speaker wiring connector attached on top front part of panel.
On mine I believe I also had to disconnect the connector that goes to the
5. Speakers are held in by 4 screws. As someone pointed the Infinity
speakers have the amp mounted on them (screws). I removed the amps from the
Infinity speakers and attached them (tightly) to the new speakers using tie
wraps. Attach speaker wires, these are push on friction held clips.
To reinstall, reverse the order above. I ended up replacing some of the
clips that got a bit beat up during panel removal These snap in to the door
The rear speakers are the original and I didn't replace these. My
understanding they are 5 1/4". The procedure for replacing these is very
similar to the fronts.
As someone pointed out you don;t get a lot of sound out of these in the quad
cab. (esp. when the rear seat is in the down position). I've noted the sound
is better with the seat up.
That's the problem in this newsgroup, A guy asks a legitimate question and
gets seven responses, 6 of which are just irrelevant drivel and loud mouth
bantering. Geez, just answer the question or
So, which of the choices did you make? rofl
We upgraded the speakers on our 01 Dakota... the difference between buying the
speakers on the web or buying them at a Circuit City and getting "free"
installation was about $75...
For $75, I wasn't going to be pulling door panels off... we had CC mess with
