6 speaker replacements JBL

All I can say is WOW! I have a 2017 with the UConnect 6.5 6 speaker system. I first changed the dash speakers with some Kicker 3.5 speakers. I thought the Kickers were too high and had little mid range to them. I ordered all 4 door and dash speakers from Amazon. I replaced the dash speakers with JBL GX302 and the 4 door speakers with JBL 6x9 GTO939. I have never used JBL before, but the reviews were very good and the door speakers are 2 ohms. I think that it the key to getting a good sound. The JBLs were the same price as the Kicker speakers and some no name 2 Ohm speakers on Crutchfield...win-win.

The overall sound is very good condescending the limitations of the factory head unit. I am getting very crisp sound and nice deep well rounded bass. To test the sound, I used the remastered version of U2: The Joshua Tree. The words with "S" and symbols did not hiss, the guitars riffs blended well along with any keyboard/synthesizer and the bass was very good considering there is no subwoofer. The 6x9s fit in the front and the back doors. There were no modifications on the front doors needed but on the back there there is a small plastic cross brace that can be simply pried out with a pair of pliers.

I cannot get over just how CHEAP the factory speakers are. All 4 magnets are as heavy as one of the JBL speakers. The cheap paper factor speakers are also very shallow in depth compared to the JBLs.

Question Blown Right Front Door Speaker

Hey hey - I have a blown out stock door speaker, its driving me nuts and has to go!
I know this has been asked before but please just want a final confirmation before buying. I have the six speaker set up and need to know the right ohms for the front doors and dash. 2 or 4 ohm please? I'd like clear highs on the dash and some nice bass from the doors. Thanks Rene Forum!

Does anyone know if the dash speaker wiring harness is on Amazon yet? I saw the Metra 71-039C referenced earlier is no longer available as it now Metra 72-7902. I found the 72-7901 on Amazon but assume those are different and won't work.


Thanks!
