Default Radio wiring diagram

I'm trying to put in some dash speakers and wondering if anyone knows which wires are for the front door speakers? I can pull the door off but hoping to avoid this if possible. If someone's added these before what is the best way to wire them in?

if you just want to put in some new speakers, then just get some speaker harnesses

How are you planning to power them, off an amp or the in dash receiver? Did you have speakers in the dash to begin with or are you adding them?

I added them, ended up "google-ing" and found an 07 diagram which showed me the colors to tap off of. had some old infinity speakers from my old truck and I trimmed the brackets down to fit in the dash.

I put Infinity Reference series in my dash. I should have written the color codes down. had the door panels off when I did mine.
Do you have a link to that diagram?

NP - After adding the Infinity reference in the dash that was one very easy mod that sure makes the factory radio sound better. I ended up getting them at Best Buy "open box" for like $50. The sales guys said they had been there for weeks they couldn't get rid of them so they just kept lowering the price - worked for me!
