6x9 Speakers

Looking to replace factory door speakers with aftermarket. Not too familiar with which will fit. Need some input and help.

Anyone with expertise in this area?

all 6x9 speakers should fit no problem. the doors are pretty deep for a speaker location.

here is a link to the patriot forum, this will show you how to change your speakers. hope this helps.

Good deal! I was not sure of what was in the doors or how to get to the speakers. I used to work at a car audio place several years ago and most of the time, the whole door panels had to come off just to get to the speakers! I am glad that they are easy to get to on the Compass! I like the stock sound in ours (quite a bit of bass for stock) okay, but I would like a little more bass and filling sound.

Can anyone attest to the sound difference in the Compass with aftermarket speakers?

Speaker wire color code

I just posted this in the Jeep Patriot thread that link is provided above. But to shortcut, I couldn't find any wire color code reference to which speaker wire is positive and which negative. Mine is a two wire "Base system)

The answer is, Dark Grey/Violet (DG/VT) is positve and Dark Grey/Yellow (DG/YL) is negative.

One more thing. All 6x9 speaker exterior frame dimensions are not the same. After doing my homework I purchased a set of Sound Stream SST's. However, the lip protruded more than the stockers to the point I had to grind down the ends a bit to get them to fit in the opening. Much more work than I certainly had anticipated, a one to two hour job turned into a four to six hour job. But the improvement of the sound was worth the extra work.

2010 Compass LTD White on black.
Added UConnect w/IPhone cable, front/rear MOPAR mud flaps, K&N drop in air filter, hardmount gooseneck cell phone station, MOPAR cargo liner, MOPAR cargo net, remote mount ESCORT Radar/Laser Detector w/Voltmeter readout, upgraded speakers, added stock mount Tweeters & sub-woofer, MOPAR Back-up Camera/monitor, front lower grill, interior wood accents
