Easiest way to upgrade speakers
I have a 2011 compass with the BA speaker system. I would like to upgrade my rear tailgate speakers. Any suggestions how to do that? Any suggestions what would be best to put in there brand/wattage wise? Is that the best way to improve the sound in the car? Thanks!!

Sound qaulity wise they aren't bad for a factory system, however you are quite limited in changing things out while retaining alot of the factory parts.

What I mean to say is that, changing the speakers and not changing the amp will have little effect on what sound quality you will get.

There are the kicker audio speaker upgrades which are a plug and play option from mopar, while I haven't used them myself personally they do exist.

The speakers in the BA system are 2 ohm so it really limits you on what you could change out while leaving everything else the same.

What part of sound quality to you feel is lacking. The front tweeters in the dash handle most of the vocals and high frequencies, if anything I would think they would be responsible for an increase in sound qaulity if changed out, however if you start changing things out, its pretty much remove the entire boston acoustics system and go aftermarket.

For myself I find the sound quality just fine, I just thought the bass was lacking a bit and added a 10" Kicker L3 sub in the back trunk area.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Here is the application guide for Kicker stuff

You'll see you can get the 77Kick16 to change the front speakers and tweeters, Those speakers will also go in the rear door as well.

77Kick25 is the fold down speakers in the hatch.

There is also an amp upgrade 77Kick18AB I"ve thought about this one myself but don't have a spare 200 to spend testing it out.

I learned a long time ago that speakers that sound good to one set of ears not necessarily good for yours. This is why auto sterio shops have so many different sets wired up and a switch to move the sound from one set to another.

Go to your favorite shop. You might mind the upgrade you're looking for, or you might find that what you have if just as good if not better than any alternaivee you find.
