The door speakers are low frequency speakers, so yes, they just bump, lol.

This Alpine system SUCKS. My friend has a Hellcat with the Harmon system and although it sounds better, its not the best either.

What do you recommend? I'm looking to upgrade my alpine system. I would appreciate the advice of those who have gone before me.

Add a Amp, makes the speakers sound much better, OR you can always change the speakers with the amp.
The problem is the factory amp is only 276 watts with the sound group I and it's not loud at all.

WARNING.......take it to a shop that works on a lot of Dodges or they will have problems working with the 8.4 radio, don't ask me how I know.

Sounds like good advice. The installer I talked to this afternoon did a great job on my 2000 MR2 Spyder, but he didn't sem familiar with the UConnect. I should start a tread for a location-based installer.

Very good idea.

When I took my 2016 SXT PLUS to a audio shop it took about 4 trips to get it right!

BTW.....my used 2006 Ford Fusion with a base radio was louder and clearer than my SG1 Alpine system in my SXT Plus, sad!

It amazes me that still today, cars come with crappy sound systems. It reminds me of the days when cars came with AM radios and a single speaker in the middle of the dash.

In this sense, things haven't changed much. :frown:

Yeah, I remember the first thing you did if you bought a new car years ago was change the radio and speakers.

Funny thing is the SG1 in my 2014 Rallye Redline with the more basic radio was louder and clearer than my SG1 in the 8.4 touchscreen!!
For some reason the SG1 with the 8.4 touch screen was quieter??

I agree, the "Alpine" system sucks. I replaced all of the OEM speakers, not one of them had Alpine anywhere on them. I also added Kicker tweeters to the 'A" pillars. The sound has drastically improved but to get thumping bass, you will need to add an amp. I will be adding a 4 channel amp and thinking about running the door speakers off of it.

You see 276W amplifier, and you have minimal expectations and still disappointed. I have changed the gain on my MP3s and listen at 38, and still want for more. A Guy

Use a pac audio ap4-ch41, replace with aftermarket speakers, and add amp.
