2008 Audio Upgrade Help

I have a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 with the stock navigation and rear camera system, NOT Boston. I'd like to upgrade the front door speakers first. Does anyone on here have experience with this equipment? Should I go with a 2-way or 3-way 6x9? I'm pretty sure the front door speakers are "full range" according to the wkjeeps website. My guess would be that I should pick up a 3-way speaker.

I'll either do the rear door 6.5" "full range" speakers or the dash 3.5" "high frequency" speakers next. I'm not looking to switch out the OEM radio at this time, so I'll probably need something that sounds decent on low(ish) power.

I'm not looking to compete, I just want decent-to-good sound. The stock setup almost sounds muffled. I've seen the recommendation for Focal Auditor speakers for my setup, but any other recommendations would be appreciated. I just want the high frequencies to be more clear and the maybe a hair more bass.

Re: 2008 Audio Upgrade Help

Can anyone provide any input? Is there a mounting depth limit to stay under or should most 6x9's fit?

What about the 3.5" dash speakers? Looking at the JBL GTO329. Amazon says they fit but they've been wrong before...

I run kickers in mine but they contact the window track slightly. They have a depth almost at 4"

Re: 2008 Audio Upgrade Help

This doesn't really answer your specific questions, but I think this thread will help with the install of the amps/wiring and placement.

Stereo Install

Let me know if you have any questions...hope that helps some!
