I have a 2011 300 Limited with the premium 6-speaker Alpine system. The "premium" part is a joke. I test drove a 2013 300S with the Beats audio system while waiting on mine to be serviced and fell in love with the sound. I want it in my car without having to trade for a new one.
So, do you guys think it would be possible? I'm no speaker expert here. If the factory wiring doesn't plug up, would I be able to splice the speakers in like you can with aftermarket ones? As far as the sub goes, I know I will have to wire that up on its own. But my 300 already has a 276-watt amp and I believe I can remove it and install the Beats amp in its place.
Also, I am aware of the aftermarket route, but I do not want to go aftermarket. I would be 100% happy with the Beats system as it is exactly what I'm looking for and is not overkill.
My question really is, should it be fairly easy to install like aftermarket speakers? Meaning that if it happens to not plug-n-play directly with factory wiring
, wouldn't it be simple to have a car audio place install them as if they were aftermarket units? Surely factory speakers don't have some type of way of blocking this type of install. Also, if the other 4 speakers are required for the system to work, I can get those and other parts no problem.
Your thoughts on the install are much appreciated.
