Could you recommend a set of front speakers that might clean up the dialog? If I read you correct, I would not use the included Polk crossover in the new component set?
Greetings,

That is correct. The Alpine OE system has the crossover's built into them. The passive crossover will cause problems giving you distortion and robbing you of the power.

Look into this Polk for the front doors:

Polk Audio DXi6501 6-1/2" component speaker system — also fit 6-3/4" openings at Crutchfield.com

The next step up in price range, you will be looking at the $300.00 range.

Hope this helps.

Best for now.

Re: Replaced my 2014 Overland Dash Speaker

Greetings,

It will work for the back doors. My personal opinion if you mount the tweeter to close to the front seats, it might not be to comfortable for the those who sitting in the front. In addition, depending how you like your music, it might also throw it off balance in terms of your sound perception.

If the above cons fit your description, then if you are looking to stay in the Polk family, then check this one out, it is a coaxial:

Polk Audio db651s 6-1/2" 2-way shallow-mount car speakers at Crutchfield.com

Best for now.

Greetings,

The easy install would be a 25mm or 1 inch tweeter. Depending on the assembly of the tweeter it might have to modified to fit in the original opening.

Tweeters come in different types of dome material to replicate the sound and this is were you come in. A Focal tweeter that comes with the component sets has a metal or tinny sound and it has more of a bright sound that sounds harsh to some. Best example for this, if what to replicated a dance club sound or the modern hip-hop, electric and various similar types. The other type of tweeter is a soft tweeter that has some sort of fabric such as silk or something similar. The sound is a more natural and very crisp. Music like Rock, Soft rock, easy listening and jazz are excellent choices for this type of tweeter.

Now remember, we all here differently. So what excellent for me might not be good for you and visa vicar. Pop into a local BestBuy and do a comparison test between the different tweeters that come with the component set.

Best for now.

Re: Replaced my 2014 Overland Dash Speaker

Why did you choose that particular set of speakers for the front and rear doors other then they probably will fit well in the openings?

Greetings,

For that price point, the Polks have a nice balanced sound. They also a very efficient speaker that does not require an over bearing amount of power to push them. If the music you listen too requires more of a mid bass punch, then you have to step up in price for a better 6.5 speaker.

On many of these component sets, the more money you spend, you are not getting better speaker drivers. You are getting a better passive crossover network and if you are doing just a straight speaker swap in the Alpine Factory system, you not be gaining any advantage since you can not use the crossover properly. When purchase speaker drivers my themselves or really expensive set with the xover, then you really setup.

This something to consider when trying to improve the system and the budget you setup for.

Best for now.

Re: Replaced my 2014 Overland Dash Speaker

I went with the Polk DB351 and purchased an inexpensive scratch free auto-trim removal kit from Amazon, I always like to have tools around.

It was a very simple upgrade and now I'm looking to replace the other speakers with something equivalent or better.
