Need help with 92 toyota celica hatchback speaker installation.
My car has dash and rear speakers in it. I had my boyfriend install them since he said he knew how to do so but I took notice to the fact that my boyfriend installed them directly into the factory wiring. He didn't use the wiring provided with the speakers and instead just plugged them right into the factory harness without using the new harness at all. When I tested out all the new speakers I saw no improvement. Is this because he didn't use the wiring the new speakers were provided with? If so how can I go about properly wiring them myself?

What kind of improvement did you expect? If your old speakers were working fine and not blown out, there wouldn't be much difference except maybe at a very loud playing level. If you were hoping for something louder without distortion, you need to upgrade your stereo player to a more powerful unit or get an amplifier for your system.

Do your new speakers have external crossovers? They look like a little box about the size of a cigarette pack. I ask because this is the only thing if miswired would really make a sound difference. If they do have external crossovers then a manual from the company's website should be printed off. This seems like a shortcut answer but the original manual is really the first and best place to start. If they don't have crossovers and otherwise using factory wires vs new wires would make zero hearable difference. The way I see it if your factory speakers were already pretty good, adding upgraded ones may only give more "capability". Perhaps even resulting in less bass if they are power hungry. Meaning now that they can handle more power and better lows at high volume it's time to get a better head unit/ CD player! Preferably one with a multi band EQ and built in high pass filter like most of the Pioneer's have. And perhaps a small amp like an Alpine 445u if that's not enough improvement. You would think your existing dash unit is loud enough so you really don't need a better one right? Not really. Bass is more demanding and with a better power source even at the same volume you are going to get more and more clear bass.

He did nothing wrong. Your speakers you chose did what they were designed to do and that was not any better than the ones they replaced. Suck it up, or get speakers that can actually play better than your stock ones. Some people think that louder is a better sound. Sometimes it is, as long as fidelity is better. No speaker you install is going to make the radio output more power than it already has, no matter what the box says that the speakers come in. Next time you shop for speakers, listen to them play before you buy that model.

First thing I would say you may not notice a difference in sound from the speakers if that if your using the cars factory radio which you didn't mention so I'm assuming it is. Is that compared to aftermarket ones the factory radios usually produce much lower wattage to the speakers say 15 watts per speaker for example compared to an aftermarket one which may be producing 50watts which would make a much bigger difference in sound compared to factory especially with new speakers . Now as for the wiring that comes with new speakers depending what you prefer to do it's usually only a short amount that has the connector ends to connect to the speakers connectors and then one can connect them to the cars factory wiring or just go without adding it and just straight wire it sometimes cutting off the original connectors cause they vary but it all goes to the same place the factory speaker wiring all is all headed to the same place , which is to the wire harness connecting to the radio
