I've seen a bunch of posts here about replacing the factory speakers and they mostly seem pretty involved with Dynamat, rewiring, new amps, etc.

Has anyone just replaced the stock speakers with upgraded ones? Without rewiring with heavier gauge wire and all that? I'm thinking about changing the stock speakers out and wondered about the component setup in the front doors with the tweeters in the A pillar.

Thanks and sorry if this has been beat to death. I just can't leave stuff alone....;)

I put a set of Infinitys in my 2014, including new tweeters in the pillars. Made a huge difference in clarity. Sounds like I pulled a blanket off. I didn't bother rewiring as the amplifier in the head unit isn't powerful enough to take advantage of heavier gauge wire. Also added a small powered subwoofer in the trunk area near the battery. I needed some adapters to mount the new speakers to the factory screw holes, but it was pretty painless.

Awesome! I hear 6.5" speakers fit best?

Did your Infinitys have a crossover you had to wire up or were they just a woofer and tweeter?

Yep, 6.5" for the doors. There was a passive crossover for the tweeters. There was enough room in the pillar to secure it out of the way. I went with full-range two-way speakers in the doors all around, rather than just a woofer in the front doors. The speakers I got have aim-able tweeters so you can get a little more fill with the high frequencies.

I used these adapters:
