Anyone replace stock speakers yet? Thinking of doing so in the near future and was wondering how much of a process it will be.
Jeff...I'm about to tackle the front driver's door speaker tomorrow...have watched a few YouTube videos on how to do it...doesn't look that difficult...not sure about the rear door speakers, but suspect they're probably very similar to the front door speakers. Will let you know if I run into anything weird or hard to do...I'm an amateur "mechanic"...at best... :)

What speakers were you thinking of? I might replace the stock speakers in mine too, they're not that great.
I bought some kickers from crutchfield...put one in the rear passenger door and tried it out before I did any more.sounded worse then the stock did. So I put the stock back in

Stock speakers are probably low ohm so they don't need as much power to push. If you replace with speakers that are a higher ohm they will sound like crap because the stock amp is probably only pushing 20-30 watts per channel.

Wasn't even aware I had an amp...not with the non bose system. Can it be disabled?/removed?

Replaced all 6 speakers in mine, sound deadened all 4 doors with Noico 80mil, and used Stinger FAST rings on the door speakers. Now it sounds like I have a tiny subwoofer lol. Thinking about putting bass blockers on the door speakers and getting a powered sub for under the rear seat.

RECOIL REM65 Echo Series 6.5-Inch Car Audio Component Speaker System https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08DNJDR6K/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_04QYCKW906G9MC6WAY3C

I bought two sets and didn't use the tweeter for the rear. These are 4 ohm impedance, but the DCR is 2.8, so they are technically 3 ohm speakers. Sensitivity is also good at 90dB. They put out a lot of bass and the highs are quite clear.

A small 50w x 4 channel amp in the glove box and it's loud enough to deafen you.

I'm having an JBL 60x4 amp installed soon, but that will be in the trunk near the factory amp.
