      Alpine system vs standard six speaker system

      I'd like to know how much better this system is and if there are some quick and dirty upgrade to the standard system that can be made to get it in the ballpark. I'm not a do-it-yourselfer so the more plug-and-play a set up the better for me

      Thanks guys!

      I have the 6 speaker system and have started upgrading my speakers to Kickers, starting with the dash speakers (DS35's). HUGE difference from just those 2 tiny speakers. I say go with the basic system and upgrade that for less than what the "Alpine" (really isn't Alpine speakers) system costs.

      I have the 9 speaker "Alpine" system in the Durango, and it's extremely muddy sounding compared to my 6 speaker system in the Dart with just $40 invested into a simple 3.5" speaker upgrade. Once I get the Kicker DS693's put in the doors, I should get a large increase in base as well. I may not even feel the need to put a sub in once I do that.

      Did you have any issue installing the dash speakers? Also, do you see any issues with installing the door speakers?

      @starscream5000 , did you put in an amp with your speakers or just a simple swap out of the two in the dash?

      The only issue with the dash speakers was that I ordered a Metra harness adapter and it wasn't the right one. So I don't know the proper part number for the speaker harness for the 3.5"s. What I did was desolder the harness from the stock speakers and just used that after I deleted the capacitor on the harness that was blocking base to the stock speakers.

      The rear door speakers will accomodate the Kicker 693's without an issues. The front doors will require trimming to the bottom of the speaker baskets inside the door since the Kicker 693's are pretty big.

      An amp is definitely not needed, lol. These are plenty loud just being powered by the factory amp.

      If you knew the proper part number for the speaker harness for the 3.5"s, would the install be as simple as the rear door speakers?

      I bought Metra 72-6512 and I can confirm they DO NOT fit.

      Did you personally try out the Metra 71-039c in yours?
