Speaker replacement

So I was looking on Crutchfield for some new upgrade speakers and found some. They say they fit the car, but here is my question, how do i remove the panel(s) to get to the speakers in the doors and back deck lid?
I wished there was as manual available i could buy. Anyways, anyone done this on a 2012 300 limited? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Well I stopped by my favorite stereo dream land shop and talked to my buddy who is the manager there and he suggested that the biggest issue is that the base from the stock system is lacking alot, which is true for starters, so he just happended to have a deal on an amp and ported 12" sub-box for 350.00, so this afternoon I shall know what it sounds like with the sub added, then move on from there.

Well, that's a good start. I've found that the MOPAR stock amps and speakers are woefully inadequate and I've replaced mine in both the 300 & the Ram. I've also done sub upgrades to both vehicles. So you are certainly on the right track.

Yeah....that is true.

Before you select an amp, select speakers that sound good to you, then select the amp that provides the power your speakers require. Leave a little "headroom" in the spec to cover those momentary spikes.

Well the bass is great now, but like Maddog said and I suspected, the mids and highs suffer something bad. Oh well, it does sound alot better now, guess now I need to get the mids and highs updated and amped. Hmm, may need a Christmas present. Guess its a CAI, Pedal kit and Splash Gaurds or the mids and Highs replaced and amped up. Hmmmm which way..... ya ya I know, all of it at once, Maybe.....

Visit to Chrysler Dealer and listened to other 300C Stereo's.

Went to dealer had them check door speakers
Had car all washed up so I decided to go to dealer and listen to other new 300C front door speakers and have dealer check mine. My 2008 300c Heritage had an awesome stereo and I thought a new one should also. Imagine my disappointment to hear the 2012300c door side speaker sounded like mine. I thought, even worst, Dealers tech said side speaker is a low sounding speaker. Not meaning for low's, just plain low. They are right. The fronts and rear sound OK but sides just plain stink. Alpine you need to take time out. I can't imagine Chysler QC approving this system. Other then this, car is great. Sorry for others having to put more money into their stereo. Keep us posted on how to improve side speaker sound.

SchatzieII,
You are right on the side speakers sounding like crap. Funny, just out of college (during the mini-truck craze) I had a new mini that I put a couple grand in stereo in. It sounded awesome, but I remember first out I started with really good bass, but the mids and tweets i bought were crap. The bass would override the mids bad. Ya know when the music is such that there is a heavy bass note from a bass guitar playing and that is all you hear type bad. Kinda like now.... funny enough to say. I fixed the problem in the truck with a good set of MBQuart mids in the doors and tweets up top. That with another amp did the trick. SO, guess where Im going today..... LOL

Maddog, Question for you. I have my old Iphone 4 that i have as a backup to my new 5 and I thought why not use it for an ipod in the car. So i have it connected to the USB in the glovebox and just leave it there. My question is it seems to be charging even when the car is off, is this correct or am I crazy? and if it is, will this not drain the battery if the car is left for a week or ..... without starting? (Im gonna post this question elsewhere also)
Thanks for your time.
