Door speakers replaced

So being a guy who enjoys a good quality stereo system in my home, I enjoy the same in a vehicle. To my ears, the factory speakers just did not deliver a nice full range sound. I opted for MB Quart to replace the factory ones. Got around to doing this today. Once I removed the speakers from the door, I was shocked at the weight of them. ANYTHING has to be an improvement over these things, not judging by their weight, but the sound. The MB Quarts really helped the mid / high frequencies a lot. I will definitely be replacing the rear one soon now that I hear such a difference. Heres a stock speaker, weighing in at a whopping 12.9 ounces. Pathetic, and this is supposed to be the premium speaker? Whats the non-premium one consist of? HAHA

Here are two pics from the 2013/14 premiums. Just the doors, the rears look similar to yours. But yes, the magnet on the driver was pathetic.

I can tell you honestly, those look better than the ones that came in my base model. I replaced all 4 with entry level Focals....one of the better mods

The stock speaker magnet actually is not pathetic. They do not weigh a lot and are not big because they use a neodymium magnet instead of your typical ferrite magnet. Neodymium magnets have a much bigger magnet charge. However, they could of used a better tweeter and cone for the mid range. So they did well with the magnet, but everything else sucks lol.

So do aftermarket speakers typically use the ferrite type?

It depends on the brand and price range. Don't get me wrong ferrite is a good magnet to built a speaker with. Most aftermarket companies who design in house know how to make a respectable speaker with either magnet. However Neodymium magnets have there advantage when it comes to space savings and weight.
