Okay sorry for the title, but I just have so many, questions, about doing audio in my cobalt.
First of all, my cobalt is a 2006 LT Coupe, with the pioneer audio system (7 speaker) without onstar. And im looking to upgrade everything. Just to make my system sound better than the stock system, and then eventually getting some subs.
Q- when i get new speakers, and when i want to install them, would they just basically connect n disconnect like the rear stock speakers, with that clip. and would the new speakers, already be connected with that clip or would i have to do something special to connect the wires.
A: It all depends on the speakers, some are set up in such a way you can reuse the clips, some, you have to trim the wires, and use a female end spade connector to attach the two.
Q- for the front speakers, if i just want to replace them i do not need to get the component speakers, right??? and what do i need to do for stopping the rain water. and is there a tutorial on how to remove the door panels.
A: you are correct about the component speakers. You should only need a little bit of automotive silicone to seal the rainwater out from your door, applied to the back lip of the speaker where it mounts. As for a tutorial on removing a doorpanel, you'd have to search the interior part of the forums.
Q- if i get a new cd player (head unit) what am i going to need, to keep the car the same, with the warnings and chimes and such, and not loose that information.
A: It all depends on where your chimes come from, if they come from your speakers, then you need a special adapter. Otherwise, you shouldnt have any problem(if the chime is coming from your dashboard).
Q- when i get subs, would this box be okay (http://blog.sounddomain.com/gadget/2...lt-b.html#more
), or is it better off getting a normal box. and would i be able to run the subs off a second battery, down in the wheel well (by the main battery, with the spare tire still.), or not.
[disclaimer- with this box it would, not loose trunk space so thats why i was wondering.
A: you should be good, most custom boxes are tested for sound quality before putting on the market. As for running the subs off a second battery, why not just upgrade your battery that is there, and get a bigger alternator??? that would be the more practical route.
Thanks in advance, and I am truly happy to find this site, because I was looking on how to remove the rear deck, and this was the only place that had a tutorial on it, for free, and not $5.99 +plus s/h. ha ha, thanks again.
