anyone ever have problems with the stock door speakers? my passenger one the past idk 6 months has worked one day and not the next. starting yesterday both the driver and passenger door speakers stopped working. my a-pillar tweeters still work as well as my rear door speakers. anyone think it could be a loose connection or do you think it could be blown speakers?


next question would be if they are blown is it worth the plastic rattle to upgrade all my speakers and get a double din? is it a pain in the ass to put sound deadening in the doors?

If you sound feared you should have less rattle. I deadened both my front doors when I swapped out my speakers and it made a huge difference

I got kickers in all my doors I have some rattles on the front doors once I put deadening on the back it fixed it. Sounds so much better with and aftermarket radio and speakers. Real easy to install deadening. Basically peel and stick and cut

i have heard good things about polk or focal speakers. just not sure about a double din. i think from what ive seen a pioneer unit would be the way to go. wouldn't need a nav unit though, i have my trucker gps if i need to go somewhere or 2 cell phones lol.

I've always loved pioneer. Grwat product for the price. I put a kenwood in mine due to price and it had the features I wanted. It impressed me

thats odd. do you have the resistive or capacitive unit? googled it and went to amazon, looks like it shows it has nav. maybe there is one that comes with no nav? do you think it has a pandora app or compatible? thats what i use for radio.

nvm, just found the non nave but comes with android auto whatever that is lol:http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-AVH-4100NEX-Multimedia-Receiver-Touchscreen/dp/B00SKJPKGW

capacitive. that's what the 8100 is, the 7100 is the resistive.

4100 is going to be resistive as well.

yeah i saw that, found a clip on crutchfield about the 3 models. i dont mind my parents cue system being capacitive, but id think id like the resistive a bit more since sometimes on the cue it doesnt pick up my finger.

so did some poking around and went to the local place thats known for systems figuring might as well upgrade vs. just replace the front speakers. guy said with the pioneer 6100, rocksford fosgate speakers all around, 5 channel amp, 10in sub, box, sound deadening installed would be like ~$1900. seems pretty steep, but then again im sure most of it is equipment cost. mainly trying to decide on if i should tackle this myself with whatever speakers you guys recommend and find writeups how to do it, or just pay the money for a professional to do it.
