Here are two pics of OEM center speaker out of 2014 Overland
The HAT Legatia L3 special edition does not have the "wings/tabs" like the OEM. HAT is circular and mounting holes are "closer" together. (No pics). This is NOT a plug and play setup. Had to fabricate a mounting adapter. No pics of this since install took longer than expected. All the effort is well worth it. Would do it again. If you are planning only one change to the audio system switching out center speaker is it. Using a HAT Legatia L3 may be overkill without other upgrades but sure is nice and is icing on the cake.😀

Greetings,

I was anxious to listen to it during the build process and I had it up and running under the factory DSP/AMP. It was for sure an improvement over stock. Then, when I had it under an aftermarket amp, another improvement. Finally, when it was a proper DSP, icing on the cake. Because I like to so much, I changed the plan from the L3v2 for the rear D-Pillars to the L3SE.

For the center channel speaker, it all depends on the listeners tastes and their degree of sound perception. It is an audiophile speaker.

Best for now.

Re: Replaced my 2014 Overland Dash Speaker

How was the speaker change while just using the original head unit and without the amp?

Greetings,

The vocal's were clear. After we added the Pioneer Appradio 3 into the system, the definition came alive. The bottom line, finally improvement. However, for me, the real improvement was via the aftermarket DSP in order to set front stage to my liking.


For those who have the 2014+ with the Uconnect built into the factory head unit, you might hear or not hear an increase in definition. This is subject to your perception of sound. Regardless of that factor, a better aftermarket speaker will help and it does not need to be a audiophile ( one.

Good sources to check out are these online folks who sell speaker drivers.

https://www.parts-express.com

https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com

Most of the brand names you find here are the same drivers that companies like Alpine, Pioneer, JL Audio, Polk, etc... have them manufacture the speakers for them with their specifications adjustments.

Best for now.

Cool Man I am always late to the party ... Thanks for the reply.

I ordered the Polk DB351 centers and also ordered the Polk MM840 DVC slim sub from Amazon. Got some sound control mat ready to go in as well. I am going to try to get rid of these crazy little rattles I hear everywhere and double check the Visor recall that was supposed to be done right before I bought it. I have the Panoramic roof on my 2011 and I have a feeling they broke some clips during the repair and were too lazy to get new ones.

Greetings,

I am using 2 of them. The JBL MS-8 for my surround processing via the LOGIC 7 and for the fine tuning I am using the RF 3.sixty.3. I will be replacing the RF with the Helix DSP Pro later this year. However, I am still debating on whether to replace my exhaust first now that I have the DS tuner in play.

For more details about the DSP's hit the link in my signature and goto part 3.

Best for now.

Let us all know how the Polk 8" DVC sub fits and sounds in the stock enclosure.

I had been looking at the Pioneer TS-SW2002D2 8" shallow mount sub. The sensitivity is only 86db, but the voice coils are 2ohm like the stock Alpine sub. Not sure which would be better on the stock amp. I would assume the Polk being it has a higher sensitivity rating.
