My 3.5" dash speakers came in today. They fit perfectly, cost only $49 shipped, and included wiring harnesses. Tough to beat that.

Took about 45 minutes to do both of them.

Pop off cover with your PLASTIC pry tool.



She's an ugly sucker...




Wiring harness installed....




Perfect fit!



...And the grill cover fits perfectly too!



I now have much better, crisper highs. It sounds great and all off of the factory head unit.

Look closely, and you can see my MINI Cooper and Miata in the background being very jealous of the audio upgrades.

Awesome post man. Thanks for the walkthrough. I might have missed it, but what wiring harness do you need for the 3.5?

Metra 71-039C. If you order from Crutchfield, do a phone order and tell associate that this is the correct harness for the dash speakers. They should include them for you for free.

Hi!

Amazing post!

I have a question: There is any improvement in low frequency -bass- from factory 6x9 to the Kicker three way you installed? or with this size it's impossible to obtain a better bass response?
