Re: Upgrading speakers for starters

^ Just so you know, those aren't the Mopar/Kicker upgrade dash speakers... those are aftermarket/store bought.

Re: Upgrading speakers for starters

I have the factory BA sound system. I up graded the Dash speakers to the 3.5" Infinity Kappa speakers and immediately noticed a difference.

I am looking to get the Kicker Upgrade eventually but for now just doing the dash speakers with the BA in the doors made a huge difference.

Re: Upgrading speakers for starters

Well i think sometime this week i might just go ahead and order the front dash, mid-bass, and rear kickers if i get a chance for the hell of it. I am just wondering why this kit says that you need the premium sound system to get the kicker upgrade. I don't think there is an answer to that...

I definitely dont have the premium system in my jeep so we will see what happens when everything gets installed. If i screw up anyhting or blow anyhting, I have a max care warranty for another 30k miles.

I'm guessing the Mopar/Kicker amp interfaces with the harness that the BA amps use. Actually, I'm certain that's the reason.

Re: Upgrading speakers for starters

I put the kicker upgrade in the dash and front doors and I just have the RAQ with no amp. Huge difference from the factory speakers. Woth the money. I'll probably get the 6.5 for the rear doors eventually, but for right now I have Sony xplods from another radio.

Re: Upgrading speakers for starters

I'm a new member and this is my first post so let me say hello to everyone. I have an 09 WK with the base system and have been trying to figure out which speakers to get. I noticed they do sell these for the base system
http://www.justforjeeps.com/kifr6x9sp7.html
Maybe they are more efficient speakers if you don't have an amp? But it doesn't look like they have dash speakers for the base system upgrade, so I'm not sure what to do. Any recommendations on what speakers to get without an amp?

This is what i was looking for. Someone that has upgraded to the kicker setup with a base sound system.

So overall you would say it is worth the upgrade? Better quality, bass and the works? If so then i am going to purchase the kit. Was this the two sets you installed? http://www.justforjeeps.com/kifr6x9sp3tw.html and http://www.justforjeeps.com/kire62sp.html ?
