== = First, pop off the interior mirror cover. The triangular looking piece at the front of the door glass inside the car. May need a small flat head but it may come off using your hands. The cover is held on by 3 clips so just pull on it a little and you will feel it come loose. Be careful not to yank on it and break the clips off or your mirror adjuster stick. Remove the screws around the edge of the door panel, (you will need a #5 torx bit to fit the screws heads) Remove the two bolts behind the door grab handle by popping off the front cover of the grab handle using a small flat head screwdriver. Once that is removed you will see the 2 bolts. You will need an extension &/or a deep well socket to reach one of the bolts. Lastly, using the small flat head screwdriver, pop off the small circular cover that is located inside the handle/door lock area then use your torx bit to unscrew the last screw. Once all screws and bolts are out, grab the bottom of the door panel, pull it out a little bit and then push it up. May take a little force but the top will slid off and your panel will be loose. Don't forget, once the panel is loose, disconnect the wiring harness from the window switches.

Try to use Ford speaker adapter plugs so you don't need to cut wires and mess the electric system up. You can get them from Ebay or Amazon

Nearly all entertainment moguls have a nice set of stereo speakers in their home. When you are listening to the latest hits with your music system, you do not want to have to settle for mediocre-quality equipment. In order to get the best experience possible out of your stereo, it is necessary to have some extra-large, technologically advanced speakers that will yield an amazing sound quality with which you can impress all your friends and family.Of course, it can be very difficult to incorporate stereo speakers into the design of a room. Many home owners are torn between the desire to enjoy the best sound quality when listening to their music and keeping their interior design looking sleek and sophisticated. When you have an enormous pair of stereo speakers sitting in the corner of a room, even the most artfully designed space takes on an unattractive aura.The trick is to find ways to hide your stereo speakers amongst other elements in the room. The most common solution is to simply tuck your stereo speakers into a cabinet or entertainment center when they are not in use; however, this is not always an option if you have limited storage space in your home or if your stereo speakers are installed directly in your walls.If you cannot store your stereo speakers when you are not using them, there are a number of different tricks that you can try that will cause these items to mesh seamlessly into a room's design theme. First of all, color is key. Any wood panelings or painted sides of your stereo speakers that are readily visible should match other elements in the room. You can also detract attention from your stereo speakers by installing them in inconspicuous areas of the room - for instance, in its far corners or behind a large piece of furniture. In some cases, creative placement of your stereo speakers can also help to improve the acoustics in a room.You do not have to choose between high-quality entertainment and a beautiful interior design. By using innovative methods to incorporate your stereo speakers into your room, you can enjoy both of these benefits any time.

Finding the right car speakers for your car and your stereo system can get a little it complicated. This is mainly because there are so many speaker choices available to you. In order to find the right speakers for your stereo system you normally have to look at your car stereo system�s specifications. You should also pick car speakers that best fit your budget.Take Note of Your Stereo's Wattage RatingBefore you go shopping for car speakers for your stereo system you need to take a look at your stereo system's wattage rating. The wattage rating provided by your stereo system shows you the power range that your car speakers can have. You should also look for the Root Mean Square wattage rate. You should be able to find this on your car stereo. The Root Mean Square gives you your stereo's power output and how much it can handle when hooked up to car speakers.Test out Car SpeakersWhen you go into the audio shop you should remember to bring your MP3 player or a CD. You should do this so you can test out the speaker systems that you think you like. Certain car speakers sound the best with certain types of music. You need to make sure that it sounds the best with the type of music that you normally play in your car. You should also remember to choose car speakers that have the same Root Mean Square range that your stereo has. The range can be a little below the stereo's output or a little above the stereo's output.Component or Full Range SpeakersNow you need to figure out if you want component speakers for your car or if you want full range speakers for your car. Full range speakers have the ability to play low, middle, and high sounds in one speaker. Component speakers have the ability to play all of these sounds in multiple speakers. Full range speakers are normally cheaper than component speakers are. However, component speakers offer the best possible sound.Make Sure the Speakers Fit in Your CarBefore you purchase the car speakers that you know you want you need to make sure that they can fit into the speaker mounts in your car. You can measure the speaker mounts in order to find out if they will fit.

No matter what musical genre you like the best, a stereo system can help to enhance your listening experience. From speakers to amplifiers, stereo systems come in various forms, and it is important to understand the components involved when searching for a stereo system to purchase. While the size of the speakers on a stereo system is important, matching those speakers to the correct amplifier is just as important. Furthermore, bigger is not always better. As sound engineering technology has continued to improve, manufacturers of audio equipment are finding ways to deliver deep, rich sound in a smaller, more compact set of speakers. In the past, one would need to purchase very large speakers that would be housed inside of a cabinet in order to achieve these results. However, today, this is simply not the case. When looking for speakers for a stereo system, it is important to know the wattage they can handle. This will help you to decide which amplifier you will need to use in conjunction with them. Speakers can range in size from a few inches to a few feet in size, so understanding your space requirements is important as well. If you are purchasing speakers for a stereo system for your car, you will need to find the smallest speakers with the largest wattage rating to get the most for your money. If you are purchasing speakers for a stereo system for your home, you may have a little bit more room to pick and choose. In terms of purchasing an amplifier, again, it pays to know how it will correspond to your speakers. If the amplifier has a wattage rating higher than what the speakers can handle, you may risk doing damage to the speakers, the amplifier, or both. You may want to consider asking an expert before purchasing a stereo system to ensure that all of the components will work well together. Finally, consider your power source. If the amplifier will be installed in a car, you may need to purchase a separate battery to power it. However, if the amplifier and speakers are being placed in your home, ensure that your power outlet can handle them before plugging anything in.

Due to the fact that the factory stereo is such low power....a new HU has likely 2x the power. Upgrading the speakers are most likely in order.
