Default 2010 Dash Speakers Alpine system

Has anyone had their dash apart? Would like to know if anyone has up-graded their dash speakers? Are there 3 up there (one in the middle)? How difficult it is to replace them (does the entire dash have to come off)? I know they are 3-1/2".

thanks in advance

They actually come out pretty easy...assuming you're gumby. The plastic covers just pop off with a small blade screwdriver and then it's just manipulating a screwdriver to get the speakers out. Problem might be finding a quality 3.5" I don't think it's a real common size.

Like mentioned ^^^, easy to get to, but using an offset screwdriver to get them out would be best. There are tons of options for replacement, depending on what direction you are heading (amps, new headunit, active, passive, simple replacement)

Sad part is they are 7mm (I think) on the 2010. Be real careful when manipulating the socket wrench, you don't want to whiz that thing around and put a nice crack in the windshield.

They fit and sound *much* better than the stockers. I originally wanted to replace the center dash and two headliner tweeters but have left them alone due to odd sizing. Just replacing the outboard dash tweeters makes a huge improvement. I also tried using Kappa 692s to the front door locations(like in my 3rd Gen) but these doors have a plastic regulator carrier subassy unlike the steel doors in the older truck so I chose not to cut them in order for the speaker to sit deep enough.

The little 2-way 3.5s though make a big difference for ~$90/pair. Not muddy like the stockers and they bolt right in.

There are some nice 3.5's out there. A 4" will also fit with some modification to the opening and a simple mounting bracket.

Getting to the screws/hex heads can be a pain. I just use a mini socket and ratchet, being careful to not smack the windshield!!!
