    ACR & 18 Speakers

    Hi Guys!
    I'm trying to figure out how to get the 18 speakers for my ACR. I got this prior to ordering my second one which is a 1 of 1. I'd really like to be able to drive this car more than just at the track and 3 speakers is kind of bullshit to me.

    Does any one have an Extreme that they have been wanting to install the speakers in.

    You can order an extreme with the 18 speakers, its required when getting a full laguna interior. I got mine that way.

    According to Courtney (thank you) at ViperExchange, all the wiring is there. You could theoretically order a non 1:1 Extreme and choose/wire your own kick ass speakers. However, I believe it may require a trip to the dealership to get the Head unit to recognize all the speakers.

    Perhaps a dumb question - are all the speaker openings there? With the old hard-core option, they covered the speaker openings, but those covers were easy to remove if desired. I like your idea of putting speakers in yourself (and choosing your own components). I definitely wouldn't be cutting any holes, though...

    I am currently in the process of doing this myself. I have a parts list already to go. I will update all when the parts arrive and what it takes to activate.

    Yes all holes are there most covered with CF panels again.

    Covered yes, but the buckets for the 6x9's is gone as well. I have a pic of it but don't know how to post via mobile phone.

    Are the grill openings there? I was told no, in fact different panels were used hence one would have to cut openings for grills or buy new panels. What's the real story

    Be patient. All locations are there. I have visually confirmed that much, as well as all wiring. When the parts I have ordered show up, I will let you guys all know. If I did my homework right, it's 1500 in parts. ACR doesn't have an amp at all. It plays through the Bluetooth side of the factory system.

    When I ran through the components list/cost with Mark, it came up to right about 1500 as well, not sure if that was going to a full even 12 speaker setup though, but I'm definitely subscribed to your findings on this!

    Let us know ASAP!

    Thanks for the info. Can't wait for my ACR and after the horrid reports on the stock stereo I'm kind of anxious to see what we can do

    I'd rather have 3 speakers mated to a great amp than 18 coffee filter speakers run by a garbage power source. You can spend that $1500 better.

    Lol... Seems like there are a few of you who are ready to do this. Let me what you have on your parts list.

    Not to sure with you on this one. I had the 18 speaker system in my 13 gts, and it was a great stock system. I'd rather stick with the plug and play option that works great vs make my own and hope it sounds ok.

    I got another bullshit email from Concierge about how my ACR has been ready for 3 weeks and still hasn't shipped. Lol... In light of my recent tradition I intend to throw my laptop out of my car onto the freeway while doing freeway speeds in order to gain satisfaction knowing the device that delivered the message of bad news is no longer in existence.

    Well, at least you're in So Cal and the driving season is still in full force. Just think how pissed you'd be if you were up against snow season right now...

    tentative parts list for those interested:

    06101736 qty 6 (screws for door woofers)
    05035254AA qty 2 (door woofers)
    05035253AB qty 1 (6x9 sub)
    05035308A qty 1 (unity speaker to add i addition to premium kit to use as rear most 3.5")
    82213535 qty 1 ( this is the 12 to 18 speaker upgrade)
    05035339AA qty 4 (buckets for 6x9's, needed as once you remove delete cover it goes to the outside)
    68224519AD qty 1 (2013-15amp)
    OR
    5035418AC qty 1 (2016 amp (thanks roadrunner!))


    note that the ACR already has the 3.5 unity center dash speaker, so the one supplied in the premium upgrade kit gets moved to the trunk in addition to the 1 in the parts list.

    I am currently waiting for the above parts, and will let you guys know how it turns out. Ill take pics and installation notes along the way. good thing is, a lot of the work is already done and supplied by the premium upgrade kit.

    Don't get excited yet, the two brackets for the rear two 3.5's are discontinued. Going to have to find a work around if they are not in the car already.

    fortunately they are only 3.5", small and light; should be easy to fab something if need be
