I don't know what they told you, but there is no need to remove any carpet for a HU install in a C6 unless you're having a backup camera put in, which still only requires the rear hatch area carpet...

I don't know what to tell you, but it's still perfect after a year of being my DD (only car), and I definitely lean on it.

It's a 2016 that was built in Feb 2016. Maybe they changed something,...

Correct.

If you don't have anything that can crimp on spades that big you can get a "hammer crimping tool" for under $20.

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.

IIRC you'll need to...

I snipped the ends off of the stock wires, crimped on some new terminals, and used marine terminals from WalMart. You can then easily add anything you want.

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...

The RCAs should be fine with just a normal Y cable, as long as you only power 1 camera at a time. If you're really uptight about that, I'd use a 4PDT relay instead of a switch and splice the video...

Make sure HU is putting out a full signal to the fronts (HPF is off).

If that's set, most likely it isn't installed properly.
