I need new speakers. How to R & R them?

Postby doncarson49 » Tue Jun 07, 2016 7:34 pm



New to Honda Goldwing. My front speakers are worn, torn. How do I remove and replace them....
I searched for a youtube on it but can't find one.

Help is needed and appreciated!

I changed my front and rear speakers out at the beginning of the year with Polk 404 & 504 speakers. I also put in a foam baffle from DEI off Amazon for more bass.
They are a real pain to get to, but well worth changing.
You can see the initial steps you need here through step 19.
Be aware that most aftermarket speakers will require a different size connector than the Honda OEM.

I spent more time playing with the baffles and connectors than changing out the speakers.
Should you decide to go with the Polk brand, you will need to nip out the screw holes and use a washer as the holes don't exactly line up.
They do make a HUUUGE difference over OEM though.
