I am seriously contemplating upgraded speakers for my 2019 GMC Canyon (base model V6 4x4) with the 7 inch infotainment unit.
I am on a strict budget. I had two Subaru Crosstrek leases, which had upgraded (Subaru accessory) Kicker tweeters and door speakers, and I put in a RockFord Fosgate P300-10 subwoofer, which I removed (sub only) at the end of the lease. The stock system is not terrible, not amazing, somewhere about decent, but doesn't get all that loud (and starts getting a little muddy at the highest volumes). I feel like something is missing in terms of clarity in the mids and highs. In the Subaru, I felt like the clarity in the mids and highs were absolutely amazing, especially when listening to live music (like country or rock) being played in a studio or small setting - I felt like there was so much more I heard that I never heard before.
This is what I am thinking for the truck:
Option 1: (~$200)
Front doors (Focal Integration ISC 690): https://www.crutchfield.com/p_091ISC690/Focal-Integration-ISC-690.html
Rear doors (Focal Integration ISC 165
Tweeters: Stock (Don't want to remove the dash to get to them)
Subwoofer (Rockford Fosgate P300-10, which I have already) - link: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_575P30...h-P300-10.html
The above Focal speakers are supposed to have extremely high sensitivity, so they should work well without an amplifier. I know adding an amp would significantly improve them, but the truck is a lease and would need to be brought back to stock in three years.
Thinking of keeping the stock tweeters in dash, and behind the driver's seat, reinstalling my subwoofer (Rockford Fosgate P300-10).
The stock tweeters are not a common size and majority of tweeters on the market would require cutting and significant modification to make them fit.
Option 2: (~$110)
The other option I am thinking of is keeping all of the speakers stock and adding a tiny Alpine KTP-445u amplifier behind the dash to the four door speakers. Not sure if the speakers would be able to handle it or if the speakers are super cheap and will just sound like loud crap. Link to the amp: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_500KTP...ower-Pack.html
I would still reinstall the sub back in, and would play with the Equalizer to dial out the bass out of the door speakers and just have the bass go through the sub. The amp is about $108 on Amazon.
