The factory ones probably not much but sensitive aftermarket replacement I bet would be loud just like the rest of the speakers. Listening at 20 is almost unbearable now it's so loud lol the volume difference is astonishing

Very happy with this Focal speaker swap. I was on the fence about doing just the speaker replacement, but I would do it again without any reservations. I was very happy just swapping the Polk center and the Focal ISS 690 in the front doors for about 5 months. I had to take a rear door panel off to do some other work to my Jeep and decided I may as well replace the rear speakers while I had it apart. I was not expecting much improvement by adding the rear speakers but the difference was very pronounced. What surprised me the most is the amount of improvement in the low and mid range much louder and clearer. As the speakers break in the improvement should be even better.

These front and rear doors are flying off..How difficult is it to remove the door panels without breaking any tabs etc?

Not hard at all. I found that when reassembling the door is the most chance of damage. I would recommend that you have all new clips on hand and replace them. They only cost a little over $5.00 for a box of 15.

I use a flat pry bar behind the push clip to get it loose. Also when putting the panel back on be sure to make sure clips are aligned with the holes in the doors.

The plastic door sticks seem to flex too much when running across a stubborn clip.

It was very easy with a plastic pry trim removal tool. Just make sure they are lined up when you are putting the door back on before you start pounding them in. I was worried it would be hard but it was simple!

You guys got it easy. Back in the 60's you had to fool with a clip behind the window crank and door handle. What a pita...Now you just have to worry about aligning the plastic pins. Easy to do.... The door handle stays put.

All you need to do, is look at the pictures on page 1 of this discussion. You pry on the door panel, it makes scary sounds as you disengage the pins, and the panel is then in your hands.......

Guys these infinity's sound amazing I'd love to compare with someone who went with focals.

They are pretty much all broken in and I can't explain how great they sound!
