Hey all,

 

I've searched the forums and don't see a lot of posts with specific info about front door speaker mods that folks have done. Has anyone done this successfully? What was involved in the process and what speakers did you end up using? Pics are a bonus!

 

 

I have a 2017 Wolfsburg 4MOTION w/o Fender Audio and have been contemplating moving part of my setup over from my 2013 Jetta (just the outboard amps and DSP) but would be replacing the stock Tiguan tweeter and door speaker for sure. I know that there are at least a handful of direct-fit kits (Eton, Steg, Ground Zero, etc) but also wonder if anyone has had luck using standard speakers.

 

Thanks for your input!

Did you do a search using "front speaker" as key words? You will find tips for door panel removal, suggested speaker brands, some threads have pics even of speakers. Two full pages came back for you to look through.

I'm running MB Quart as mains and a set of modified infinity tweeters in mine without Fender. Have to build a few brackets and drill rivets out but going thru someplace like crutchfield they can supply everything. Sorry no pics.

I think I mainly searched "door speaker" and "speaker upgrade". I'll try with your suggestion - thanks for the info!

That's good to know, I'll keep that in mind. I'm leaning toward paying a little more for one of the Euro VW upgrade kits but I'm not 100% yet. Thanks for chiming in!
