According to most folks, the factory wiring to speakers will be sufficient. It's twisted pair, excellent for low noise, and I believe it's about 20ga (maybe 18). Definitely hefty enough unless you're running hundreds of watts to the drivers.

You'll go nuts pulling the interior apart to run new wiring to the front doors. I don't think it's worth it myself.

: Thanks a lot for the diagram, and how did you run cables to all of the speakers? do you use the factory cables? or you run new cables? thanks. And how hard is it to squezee the cable through the wiring loom from the body to the door?
