speker question and thanks for the HELP!
I want to put in 3.5" dash speakers in my '05 ram 1500 quad cab. Can anyone tell me, if there was no speaker there ever would it be wired steel?
the speakers im talking about is the roughly 6" wide piece that runs along the windshield.

And could i just use tho's wirers or would i have to run new?
has anyone done this?
and well any 3.5 fit in there?

thanks guys!!!

Hello, that year had a 7 speaker and 4 speaker set up from the factory. From what your asking I'm going to assume you have the 4 speaker truck. You will need to run speaker wires for the new speakers your going to install. You are correct the 3.5" speakers are the size required for that truck. Good luck with your install.
Just a little FYI, to remove those covers on the dash just remove the pillar cover and it will lift out of the way, very easy to access.
When running the new speaker wires be careful not to force anything you don't want to knock anything out of place under the dash. Its easy to run the wires just take your time.

Forget doing the center channel speaker. 3.5's will fit up there. You may even have the mounting tabs. The only way to see if you have the wiring there is to pop off that defroster vent panel and see.

ya i do have the mounting tabs so im just going to go with the two i bought and then ill work my way to the back for the subs :)
