Newbie questions....

Just picked up a 2006 Quad Cab Ram w/Hemi, Lone Star Edition. How can I tell if I have the 4 or 7 speaker setup?? Also, how would I get to the front dash speakers to replace/install?? One more, if I don't have the 7 speakers, will the wiring still be run to the dash or will I need to do it??
TIA

Mine is a 04 but shouldn't be much different, you lift the dash cover up off the tabs and then pull away from the windshield . as for the 7 or 4 setup you will see, if the speakers are there it's the 7, if not you are a lucky guy cause you don't have to remove them just install new ones if you have to rewire the dash its the easyest part to do

Well, right now I might just install speakers and wait on the head unit. Should I just wait until I decide to change the head unit??

Yes, it will be easier to tap in to the aftermarket radio harness than in to the factory one, i recommend using a small external amplifier for the front stage (dash) and use the head unit outputs for the doors.
