if you are going to do this once and not worry then you will want to solder and shrink cover all connections. i got this cordless soldering iron (junk do dnot wast money on it it does not like large connectors)
i cleaned the speaker wires up and they were ready for connections o the amp and speakers.
remember to write down what you used for the Hot and neg wire. i took this on top of writing so i can just look at the picture.
4 screaws and the new speaker is in place.

here is the other side.
there is not alot or clearence so if i hear thumping i might need to install some foam to stop the banging (there is none so far)
the covers slide into the front and then have a twist lock on the rear. i had to reach thru the headliner to remove and reinstall them.
to keep all somewhat in place i connected the other end to the amp where it needed to go. i tinned the ends so the connection would be strong.

to run the wire to the drivers side pass door i went thru the jack pocket. this was a direct run.
out of the pocket under the carpet trim. next to the seatbelt mount.
under the door sill plate inside the wire chase and up the pillar thru the factory door loom into the door.
and new connections into the door wire.(again remember which is hot and neg.

i removed the old glue and paper from the mounts.
8 1/4" screws has the speaker pocket off the panel. i then removed the speakers the PO installed.
the stock grills were lost and i wanted to protect the new speakers so here is what i started with. the door pocket.
these were what came with the speakers i had. i did not like the space so i needed to change them out.

ok-more details on panel removal. the switch panel is held on by clips and 2 feet. i removed the switch and plugged it in so i could use the window motor if needed.
remove the 2 screws on the ash tray and 1 in the arm rest and use a door panel removal tool and the panel comes right off. this was in better shape than the drivers side.
8 1/4" bolts and the door pocket comes off like the other door.
here is the old speaker.
