Installation Description


The installation process was not hard, but it was not extremely easy either. The speakers were very easy to put in the front doors, but were harder to put in the rear deck simply because I had to rip the back of the car apart to lift the liner up to get at the speakers. The Valor 301D was a fairly simple installation once I got all the wires crimped and the heat shrinking in place.
