This may seem silly, but I am going to replace the dash mounted speaker in my truck. The old speaker is junk. I have replaced the original radio with a Pioneer supertuner 3,200 watt output. I replaced the door mounted speakers with Jensen 6x9's, drilled holes in doors and added 4'' tweeters. I made a custom box for behind the seat added jensen 6x9's and 4'' tweeters also.( I know it's the typical redneck deal )
$100 truck $500 stereo. Anyhow I have a good speaker that is the same size as the one that is mounted in the middle of the dash. I can remove and replace it very easily. But I am unsure of what lead to use. I think I should use the right rear, it being the futherest from me. Anybody ever tried this and or have any ideas about it. Maybe a dumb idea, but I have the parts and the time. I am sure the amp will handle it. Please advise. Thanks

Go to the dealer and have the unlock code reapplied. You are probably locked out, if you get no sound at all. If you get sound from some speakers, but not all... it's a wiring or blown speaker issue. Remove the unit from the dash and check the wires. If you suspect a blow speaker(s), remove one from the mounting location and move it to a known location where a speaker works and plug it in. Crutchfield makes replacements that fit your car in many price ranges.
speakers in the dash you have to remove instrument cluster to remove the speakers mounting screws.be sure disable airbags first just first turn off radio to keep from losing code and disconnect negative battery cable wait 20 minutes before working around dash area.
There are 4 studs on each side that the speaker mounts to. On these studs there are single thread nuts that have to be removed. On the passenger side all you have to do is get your hand up behind the dash and feel around the speaker for them. They come off easily as long as you don't inadvertently mix up the righty tighty/lefty loosy rule.
The driver side is a bit more of a hassle. You have to remove the e-brake mounting bracket( 2 nuts on the engine side of the firewall and 1 bolt holding it to the instrument panel) and somehow get your hand past a big bundle of wiring to reach the speaker mounting studs. I found it easier to remove the dash mounting bolts on the drivers side so I could pull the dash back a bit and get more room.
I would also recommend replacing the speakers with water resistant marine speakers and either use a spacer between the speaker and dash or cut out the existing grill so the tweeter has clearance.
look on ebay or junk yard for replacement, just remove the cover and replace it with another, don'trecommend after market unless you going to upgrade the radio and the sound. the problem with after market speakers is the hole is not align to the factory screw hole and you will need to do some drilling and some modification just to make it fit. the speakers wires is all plug in, just remove the old speaker and plug the wire back in the new speakers, only two wires involve, positive and negative.
While some new speakers do not match up directly in the vehicle mounting location, the procedure for mounting them is basically the same. First of all, you need to make sure that your speakers are the proper size to fit your vehicle. If you do not know what size your old speakers are, you can usually find out at www.modifiedlife.com. Then for a list of speakers that fit, go to Crutchfield's "outfit my car" and enter the vehicle information. If any special adapters or spacers are needed, the Crutchfield site will detail them. If you purchase speakers from Crutchfield, any mounting accessories and adapters are included free.
After you have your new speakers, remove the old ones using the instructions contained in the supplied "master sheet" for your vehicle and replace them with the new speakers.
