Types of installation

There are different types of installation techniques for sure you will go for the technique which suits your car style and your taste. Components of the speaker are woofers, subwoofers, and tweeters. Some speakers also come with installation devices.

Some types of installation of speakers are as follow:

  • Replacing door speakers
  • Installing rear speakers
  • Adjusting speakers in the trunk

Here, I have explained in detail the entire process of installing speakers in a car trunk.

Disconnecting Battery

The first and most important thing to do is that disconnect the battery. The most important thing to do is to disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and it will protect you from draining the battery and also save you from short circuit and accident.

Prepare your parts

While installing a speaker you should keep in mind one thing that the parts you want to apply should carry the proper adjustment of the speakers and prepared at the time of installation.

You should consider where your tweeters and subwoofers should be placed and this should be kept in mind that the tweeters and subwoofers should be a one-foot distance from each other not very far off.

Cross over wires

Cross over wire wires is used to increase the bandwidth and the frequency of the songs with which we are listening to the music. You should also prepare the cross over wires to increase the music experience and bass.

Box for installation

A box made up of cardboard, plastic or wood can be used for the installation of speakers. This box is necessary as it provides protection to the speakers. It is also very important to provide a full bass effect with high frequency.

Screws and hooks

Screws and hooks are used to keep the speakers at their place and adjust to the trunk so that it may not fall off. It will be intact at its place and will not fall off thus working is a lot easy on this kind of adjustment. The screws are present at their place thus prevent the system from jerking and falling apart.

Conjointment from the trunk roof

It is an easy task with the help of which you can join the speakers from the roof of the trunk. You can use the hooks for this purpose and it is quite a helpful thing. They will not occupy much space. You can easily attach it on the roof and thus there will be a lot of space in the trunk for other things.

Plates or strips for fixing speakers in a car trunk

You can also keep the speakers adjusted to the wooden or metallic plates so they can get attached to one place and you can enjoy music in full bass. You can adjust these plates on the floor of the trunk and enjoy it completely. Properly connect your car speakers with a crossover. This thing also looks aesthetically beautiful.

You can listen to the music at the optimum levels but I recommend that you should listen to medium levels thus it may not affect the battery of your car. It is also not recommended for safe driving. Thus you may listen to music at medium volume and enjoy your experience.


It is not a tough job to adjust your car speakers in the trunk. If you know how to do little electronic tasks and then you also possess the tool kit for it. It is the only way through which you can easily install the music system in the trunk of your car.
