This is the first I've heard about a speaker busting. Hopefully just a fluke. It should be under warranty I would think. How many miles do you have?

Harmon Kardon Center Speaker on Dash Busted

My 2011 Regal, which I love, has the center Harmon Kardon speaker busted making the great sound system sound terrible. Unfortunately, the car has over 50,000 miles on it. Two questions:
1. How does one access the center dash speaker? Does the infotainment unit pull out to get to the speaker?
2. Has anyone used an aftermarket speaker that has the OEM sound quality but is less likely to blow?

I am in the senior citizen category and have not played the unit at excessive, neighborhood shattering, volume levels.

The Center dash speaker is very easy to access. You can go to www.crutchfield.com to see what they suggest. I did. They only recommend the center dash speaker replacement and will have a recommended speaker as well. You will need a plastic trim removal tool to pry up the grill without damaging your dash. In addition you will need some wire cutters, crimpers, leads, and a suitable 3.5 inch speaker.

If you were doing a more extensive job you could check out www.metraonline.com and see their Buick Regal Recommendations as well. Best of luck. There is a speaker replacement thread in this forum as well if you search for it.
