NO LONGER NEEDED, thanks.

Hello, I’m looking to buy all four OEM door speakers from the 2021 K5 6-speaker (non-Bose) system.

Anyone take theirs out to upgrade?

Even if they don’t work I’m still interested.

Can’t blame ya! They don’t sound great, that’s for sure.

Any idea what you’d replace them with?

Wow, that sounds great setup! Do you have a wiring schematic to follow for the wires you’re cutting?

Are you still looking for OEM speakers?
I just replaced mine after I had them for a month.
Let me know

i don't as of yet but i will be doing it hear shortly. i have to map out where i am going to come through the firewall at for my power then we will be in business. It looks at first glance it will be the passenger side firewall. i have the next few days off but its like 100+ out side here in the great pnw. so i don't know how much i will get done.

Remove the battery. There’s a grommet behind it that you can run you power wire though. You could also drill a separate hole there if you prefer. I went through that grommet so I didn’t have to run the wire behind the engine.

^^Indeed, but at that rate, i'll be looking at $80K car, not $30K :)

During test drive I look at how well the vehicle drives, handles, shifts, power, etc. Mainly mechanicals. Infotainment is secondary.
