    Somebody please help me with a list of stuff i need for speaker install

    I have a 95 Ford Escort with 6.5 speakers in the door and 5x7 in the back

    I just got some aftermarket 6.5 components from the classifieds without anything but the speakers themselves, i have no clue what i need for this because i cant just go with a wire harness because im hooking it to an amp.

    I also purchased two xovers and two CDT tweeters with nothing for install included

    I know i need speaker wire, cable crimps, but after that im not sure.

    Sounds like you have gotten what you need.Maybe just the screws to mount, and Deadner/ sheets,if you want to do that, but speaker wire and screws sounds like all you need.If you havent installed power wiring for the amp, take a look on ebay, and you will be able to find an amp kit that should have most of your needs for installation from power wire/fuse,down to the remote wire/rca/speaker wire/ground wire/terminals.I would recommend no smaller than 4ga kit.Something like this for a basic install kit will be fine,and budget friendly

    Thanks for the reply. I was lookin at some of those cup things behind speakers and I kept reading that they take out a shitload of bass.

    I think I'm going with 14 gauge speaker wire also, what brands good?

    And how much wire you think I will need for amp, speakers (4), tweeters and xovers
