hen I relpace the factory speakers in the rear doors with aftermarket ones should I run new wire from the deck to them?
have swapped out the original stereo to a new Kenwood excelon deck and thanks to the info on this forum figured out the pink wire that turns those speakers on. Should I completely bypass that part of the factory wiring?
I would run all new wiring if I was running an amp to the speakers but for now it will just be off the deck.
Im also looking for ideas for the far rear overhead speakers. Has anyone swapped to a round set and been able to keep the factory covers on afterwards?

Is the pink wire in the harness that powers the rear door speakers for a cross over to run the dash and door speakers?
That would almost make sense so they didnt try running the front channel at 2ohms instead of 4, or alternatively at 8ohms.

The speakers are amplified, and that pink wire turns on the factory amp. To answer your first question, no you do not need to run new wire to the aftermarket speakers unless there is something wrong with the factory wiring thats there. It wouldn't hurt to do, but I don't really see it helping any unless you plan on running tons of power to your speakers.

Are they amplified seperate from the factory amp under the dash that I unplugged when I installed the new deck?

I think you're referring to the tuner box that is above your gas pedal. I've never come across one of those particular trucks as amplified, so I don't know where the factory amplifier would be located, but no sound without powering the pink wire sounds like a separate amplifer is in the truck.

jsut seeing this as I search for a different door speaker swap for myself. anyway, you can swap out the rear speakers for 6.5's, but keeping the factory covers may be difficult. I'd take them off and poke around a bit. you might have to go down to a 5". a 4x6 or 4" will be better than the stock 4x10 and that'd fit easy just put in a 20ga or so piece of metal with sheet metal screws and caulk or something to dampen vibration/unsavory sounds. hopefully this is still relevant for you.

we had a 94 2500 suburban.. we put 6x9 in the rear, stock was 4x10. we took the plate where the 4x10's would bolt up trimed it to fit the 6x9 and put it back up there.. couldnt even notice they were there but sounded great! had 6.5 in the middle and i believe 4x6 in the dash
