Upgrading door speakers

Hey there. I was looking to start upgrading my speakers on my '10 GT Convertible. It has Sync and Nav, etc... I'm looking at just replacing the stock 6x8 door speakers with some JL ZR650 components and installing the tweeters in the pillars above the dash by the front window. I'm planning on running this off the stock deck power for now, but maybe adding an amp and sub in the trunk down the road. Does this sound like a decent upgrade? Any of you have luck with the component speakers installed this way? Thanks much!

Sounds fine. Won't be as loud as if you replaced the factory deck with a new one, but I understand not wanting to loose sync. From my experience people's upgrade pattern seams to go head unit, then speakers then amp and sub.

But components up front will defiantly give you a cleaner sound.

Re: Upgrading door speakers

If you want Clean and Crisp sound, get an amp for your front end speakers..

The stock speakers on the 10's aren't bad at all. If you amp them they will sound better and be a lot louder as well. But if you do that you're most likely going to want to get a sub woofer as hell. You don't need a head unit. I have an amp and a sub right now and it makes a huge different.

You can keep sync just have to keep an auxiliary port open for it, and that means a better head unit. The Shaker speakers aren't bad on the 05 and up models. I assume you the shaker system. Greeting an amp will help.

Thanks for the responses. I don't have any reason to change out the deck. Works better than any other car stereo I've ever had in previous rides. An amp sounds like a good idea, but after comparing speakers in a few stereo stores it does seem like the stock ones in my '10 are not that bad. Not super loud, but it doesn't seem to distort when I turn it up to 11.

Keep your head unit, I recommend adding a amplifier and re wired all speakers with better quality cables... U will hear the difference and adding a sub will be a great addition
