Anybody actually use these factory upgrades? They seem really cheap to be honest. I am also thinking about some upgrades...

Thanks,

Joel

I put in the JDM upgraded speakers 10x the better sound and a friend put the upgraded USDM speakers 9x better than stock

Agreed...the factory upgrades are a pretty good choice for your buck. The subwoofer is also a great upgrade...just a little extra bump without bulky boxes or weight.

What does JDM and USDM mean?

i've got the full OEM set (tweets + front and rear door speakers) got all six brand new off of ebay for around $50 + ship. Night and day better.

For my '98, the speakers are poly cones (replaces factory paper) and made by panasonic. Not sure what the right part will be for your '01, but odds are that it's the same one.

Thanks, but how would you know if you are buying speakers meant for JDM or USDM?

Look from where your buying it from, usually it will state it also ;)

I know that the 05's had an upgraded speaker package. Do the 06's have that? I thought that they just included all that with the 06. I was pleasently surprised and how good the stock speakers sounded. They are way btter than the OEM upgraded speakers I had in my 02 WRX. I would like to install a better 6x9 sub and put in some dynomat. I know that someone on here was going to buy a pair and wanted to sell one, if you're out there let me know (or anyone else for that matter).

What size are those front speakers? 6 1/2"? I like how you don't have to remove the whole door card to replace the speakers. Now that I know that it's that easy I am definitly going to invest in a set of fronts. How do those Pioneers sound compared to stock? Do you have stock tweeters? If so I would think that having two tweeters would make the sound tinny.

Anyone what to split the cost of a set of 6x9 subs to replace the one in the back?

I'm pretty sure that the SF's came with factory door tweeters





As for the sound, I just had to adjust the treble and it sounds great.

The pioneers defintaly helped out with bringing out the high's but the bass still sucks :(

I've got the upgraded speakers (all 6) and the subwoofer. Put them in about 2 years ago. The sound is much better than the standard speakers (still using the OEM deck.) I wouldn't have paid full retail for them though! I think I paid ~$30 for the 4 door speaker set, ~$15 for the 2 tweeters, and ~$120 for the subwoofer.

I realized that the after I left work and looked down and didn't see the lovely lines that would suggest there is a nice little pop off grill that says "go ahead, replace that speaker, it's eeeeeaaaaasssssy".

Taking off the whole door card bites.

Nope. The L models most certainly did not. Pop off the grille and see what's there. Might have changed in later model years, but I think the S models came with the tweets, and the Ls did not.
