These speakers are not bad for someone looking to replace the stock speakers in their vehicle. If you are looking to do a big install and have a high quality build then these are not for you.

January 7, 2013 Fits my 2005 Trailblazer

Bottom Line: It's a cheap speaker that fits in our 2005 Trailblazer and does what it's asked to do in providing audio to the rear passenger seat.

The right rear speaker died in our 2005 Trailblazer. I have zero automotive/trade skills. So I needed a part that was easy to replace. Searching the web for a video helped teach me how to take the door panel off (very easy) and for imagery helped me with wiring and install.

For a 2005 Trailblazer I did not know GM had a wiring harness on their speakers. If you order this and want a wiring harness then you'll need to search for one as well. Not having ordered the harness, I cut the GM harness off and used wire nuts to affix the Kenwood wires to the car wires. The Kenwood packaging had tamper stickers over the wiring instructions printed on the box (no paperwork shows you how to wire this speaker -- it's only a picture on the back of the box). Thankfully I was able to peel those stickers off to see the wiring diagram on the box.

The stock speaker frame has a peg hold that rests on alignment pegs on the door. I had to break these small pegs off as the Kenwood frame did not line up with the pegs. There might be an adapter ring out there, but it wasn't necessary for this simple install. Break off the little pegs and mount the speaker. The speaker did not PERFECTLY line up with the car screw holes. So one side is screwed flush and the other screw is resting against a leading edge on the Kenwood frame. The install holds, but it's not an exact fit.

The speaker itself sounds comparable to the factory speakers. I'm not a audiophile. So, blasting the speakers is not something I ever do. If you just need a cheap speaker to repair a dead one, buy this pair. It gets the job done. If you're looking for something to blow your windows to pieces and rumble the car next to you, then look for a review from someone who knows something about speakers.
