Did you sell the alpine system ?
installed the JBL 3 1/2" in the dash corners. What an awesome upgrade. Surprising the factories were so muffled compared to the crisp clean sound.

Hello Friends! I just did the JBL GX302 dash and JBL GX962 rear door conversion. What a complete difference! The highs and the mids came alive. I installed the rear doors first. The holes on the GX962s did not line up perfectly so I used a dremel (w/ a vacuum for shavings) and widened the holes on the speakers a little that needed it. If you only have a small budget....do only the rear doors. I drove around for a week with the new GX962s and I was totally satisfied. The dash speakers I bought at the same time so I installed them the next weekend. Real easy install especially if you use the adapters that Crutchfield sells. Well the center speaker was a little difficult. If you use a small 7mm box end wrench to loosen bolts then use a 7mm socket with your fingers to loosen the rest of the way, that worked for me. After the GX302 installs, the dash came alive with highs and mids. I had to tune the highs down on the EQ though (personal preference). I do have one GX302 for sale on eBay for $25 if anyone wants to do their center channel speaker. The listing is here...
