    Default Looking to replace factory speakers on a budget.

    Hey guys,

    So the factory speakers on my 2010 have finally started crack and pop.

    Just wondering what options I have replacing them with something direct fit that won't break the bank?

    I'm not planning on changing the deck either. Clean install is a must.

    If some off you do this on the side..send a PM as well.

    Thanks

    where abouts are you located and do you have a rough idea in mind to spend? our ice guy at the dealer might be able to get you something decent but depends what the budget is.

    I'm at DVP/401 area...no price in mind, but just want a little update from stock.

    What you thinking?

    If you're going to upgrade speakers, I suggest installing an amp as well. I had bought some really nice speakers for my old 2010 that sounded much worse than the factory speakers (this was without an amp), later installed an amp and then the upgrade was actually worth it, but without the amp I would have rather just been stock

    Anything is an update from stock

    On a budget - go with JBL or even Alpine S-class speakers WITH a door-kit sound deadener like Dynomat (or cheaper substitute)

    It all depends on what you want to spend. You can spend say 100+ a pair on a decent set of clarion/ kenwood/ Alpine that will sound great. Or you can look into components up front and co axils in the rear. 6x8/ 5x7 are the direct fit for these cars as well. I went 6.5s and got a bracket for them. An amp is well worth it as well however with that saying if you don't replace the deck then you will have to run a Line Output converter for the speaker amp. There's so many options. I've had so many different sets lol.
