In C5 the front 3.5's have standard push on terminals that are found on most aftermarket speakers (1/8" & 1/4"). Any 2-way 4ohm speaker should be an improvement over stock.

I'd say skip the speaker-only step and just wait until you can do full amp/speakers (with or without HU). If you do upgrade now, just get sub-$50 3.5's for the front.

The best way to go with an...

Just since I have all of the prints open.....

You would have to wire it like this:

Radio C4-9 to C3-1
Radio C4-10 to C3-2
Radio C4-11 to C3-3

The dark green wire should have 12v, it is generated by the radio itself whenever it is on. In your FRC without any add-on radio components there may not even be one since it isn't needed to turn...

Once the stock radio is removed the stock XM box is useless. Unlike the OnStar box, removing the XM box has no effect on the rest of the car.

Can you still drive the car?

Does the sound change with car speed?

Get up to speed, push in clutch and rev engine, does noise change with engine rpm or speed as car slows?

If the V-In RCA was yellow that's the wrong one.

Rear camera plugs in to a Brown RCA. It could just be an RCA plug on the back of the unit instead of an actual cable.

I haven't had them on the C7, but have on other cars. No complaints at all, they're a great tire at a good price IMO, and if you drive in the rain they handle great even when the road is wet.
