Why did you cut the wire? Wouldn't just disconnecting it do the same thing?

for others, don't cut..just unplug speaker and tie back the plug..

Where's the best place to cut the wire?

Where's the center speaker located?

Diagrams would be most helpful.

Why the hell would you cut a wire that simply unplugs from the speaker?

i cut mine for the reason that my cover did not want to come off easy. Didnt want to break it or have a loose cover... been driving for a long time and know that dash rattles are annoying. There is enough info on here and google to find out where,,, basically just removing inside trunk lining , on drivers side behind tail light is the amp. there is a cable of wires leading out towards the front, about 10 inches from it I found the yellow and blue wires that were twisted together by them selves...( I work with 250 pair cables every day for my job. if i dont like it, I'm sure i can fix one wire where i know it is cut. )i cut the yellow wire... still very happy with my decision.

THIS WORKS! I have been disappointed in the BA since I bought the car. Not having driven very much, 2020 miles in six months, I didn't realize how poor sounding the stereo effect was until I downloaded some tunes to a memory stick and played them.
The stereo is now very pronounced. JL 400 coming next.

Might want to consider the Alpine PDX F4 instead of the JL XD 400/4. The Alpine pushes 100 watts @ 2ohm (stock speakers) and 100 watts @ 4 ohms (aftermarket speakers). JL XD 400/4 pushes 100 watts @ 2 ohms (stock speakers) and only 75 watts @ 4 ohms (aftermarket speakers).

Alpine PDX F4:
100 watts x4 stock speakers (2 Ohms)
100 watts x4 aftermarket speakers (4 Ohms)

JL XD 400/4
100 watts x4 stock speakers (2 Ohms)
75 watts x4 aftermarket speakers (4 Ohms)

Talk about reviving an old thread.

Best use for the center speaker is to mount an aftermarket GPS or Sirius XM antenna...

Just to add to the positive spin on this; I added a 10" kicker sub and a cheap pioneer amp a while back and never had been as impressed with it as I was with the old set up in my other vehicles.

Unplugged the center speaker; it sounds really good now. Much, much better. Muy bueno.

Well after reading all of this I tried it on mine. I was actually able to pop the cover with my fingers so no tools and I disconnected the speaker. I actually found that I lost some of the highs when doing that. I tried it for a few days and then plugged it back in. I can say at least in my situation that it did not work. I tried adjusting the tones like some suggested but that did not help any. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

Replace dash speaker grill.

I know this is a revival of a old thread but does anyone know where to get
a dash speaker grill? I tried the dealer and the price was over one hundred
dollars. The speaker was less than forty dollars. Using that area to mount GO-PRO and GPS.

Yup they are pricey. I tried junk yards, but none of them wanted to sell it without dashboard :(
