My 2000 Z71 Silverado has the premium sound package. The main speakers in
the door are 6.5" the tweeters I left alone, I don't know what size they
are. The rears were 4x6" ovals. I cut out the holes and put 6.5" speakers
back there as well. I went the cheap route and put Rockford Fosgates in
there. The head unit is the original. I got a significant improvement in
sound quality for only $150 dollars and a little time.
The front door panels are easy to remove. There are a couple of screws in
the handrest. Remove them and the whole panel will lift up and off. Do
things slowly just in case. Once you have the panel free you'll need to
disconnect any wiring. The suicide doors are a little harder you'll need to
remove the screw in the cupholder and in the door pull. Then you'll need a
shove knife or similar tool to pry the clips from the door. Again, be
patient and go slow. I was a little too aggressive and broke one of the
clips when removing the panel. The stock speakers in all of the doors are
easily removed as they are held in by clips. If you're upgrading you'll
need to put new terminals on the wires and drill holes for the screws.
Also, if your magnets are too large you'll have to make a spacer for the
rear door speakers as they'll hit the door skin. If you need wiring specs I
can send those to you later. I'll have to relook them up.
