Speaker Upgrade

For the 2018 models, does anyone know who manufactures the stock speakers for Jeep? Just wondering before I upgrade to a Alpine or JBL (Harman/Kardon) coaxial and find out I'm replacing it with the same thing. Thanks to anyone who knows....

Could be. Alpine or Kicker. But one of those two!

I've got the "Beats" speakers in my Trailhawk, as a factory option. Love them.

The stock speakers for the 2018 Compass are manufactured in Mexico and are cheap/garbage. On the Mopar parts websites they were priced for around 23 dollars each for the OEM door speakers. What caught my eye was that they were a few pennies more than the Beats system speaker part number. Makes you think what really are the Beats speakers? I installed as replacements to the front & rear doors the Polk DB+ 5.25 which experiences no breaking up or crackling sound even at max volume. Could not be happier with my choice of speakers. Plus they are waterproof and at a great price from Crutchfield.com.

Did you replace them yourself or had a shop do it?

If you did them youself, how hard was it to do? Lastly part number on what you bought?

Thanks!
