2012 Dodge Grand Caravan

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I ordered a pair of these speakers that were "scratch and dent". They were absolutely perfect. I couldn't find anything wrong with them at all. I was skeptical about buying them because of one review for a Grand Caravan that stated these speakers didn't fit properly. I was glad I made the decision to order them. The FIT PERFECTLY in my dash corners of my 2012 Grand Caravan, as advertised. They are a great replacement for the cheap factory speakers. They sound great and they were a "drop in installation". If you read reviews that seem to paint a not so pretty picture, take it with a grain of salt. If the manufacturer says its a replacement speaker for your application, odds are they are right. Also, save some money by utilizing Crutchfield's "Scratch and Dent" components. On a scale from 1 to 10, I give these speakers a 10 for fit and function.

Pros: Great fit, easy install

Cons: None

AURORA

Eric from AURORA on 7/28/2019

2019 Chrysler Pacifica

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great way to easily upgrade complex factory radio system. Dropped these into my brand new 2019 Pacifica Touring L with ease.... well mostly. Wasn't sure if you should keep the pre-installed x-over patch cable in the mix, but did so, at the recommendation of Crutchfield Support team, who easily answered the question for me today (a Sunday). Hardest part, if you could call it that, was connecting the speaker x-over to the included wiring adapter, via crimps. (i.e. it wasn't that hard). Fishing the harness and the x-over into the dash is easy on the drivers side, but requires that you make sure you move the boxy harness (which is only Chrysler's fault, not Kenwood), off to the side on the passenger side speaker. I pushed the pieces off to the left, myself. All it takes is a 9/32nd socket, a plastic prying tool, a pair of wire cutters (wires are 16 gauge if I recall, when splicing harness to Kenwood's) and about an hours time.

Pros: Good price, to breathe air into your highs in a factory system.

Cons:

Not a great 'drop in' fit for Dodge

Crutchfield customer from Byron Center, MI on 7/19/2019

2014 Dodge Grand Caravan

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

They are touted as being factory drop in replacements, but the mounting tabs don't line up with the original screw holes on my Dodge Caravan. You have to put one of the tabs over a little plastic tab on the vehicle, and it just floats (rattles) around, while the other side gets screwed down. Once you screw down the side that lines up, it lifts up the other side of the speaker so it is almost off the small tab. When the tab side gets lifted up, it seems as if the cone or surround is up against the dash cover, so it rattles with low frequencies.

Pros: Look like quality speakers

Cons: Poor fit

Great, cheap upgrade

Crutchfield customer from Albuquerque, NM on 6/7/2019

2015 Jeep Renegade

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

What blew me away about these speakers is the bass that comes out them. Obviously it's not like having a sub thumping bass but for a 3 1/2" speaker I was very much surprised!!! I was looking for the cheapest upgrade to my factory set up and these more than meet my expectation. The quality of sound is so much more clear and crisp than my factory speakers.

Pros: Great bass for a 3 1/2" speaker

Cons:

Easy order and delivery. Crutchfield does a great job packaging their products with a personal touch. I am really pleased with the speakers, they sound great! Installation was a breeze and this was my first time for me installing speakers. No modifications are needed. Used the factory screws. I am on the Crutchfield site now looking for my next purchase.

Pros: Easy from the order to the install

Cons: Nothing currently

Great sound thus far, even through my factory amp. Looking to get an aftermarket amplifier soon to see how they handle higher wattages.

Fits Like a Glove

Josh from Davenport, IA on 5/6/2019

2016 Jeep Renegade

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Had some crackling starting to happen in my 2016 Jeep Renegade front dash speaker. Saw a bunch of recommendations for Crutchfield online so I decided to give them a try. It was easy to find the speakers I needed. They emailed me some instructions before I received the product and they were spot on. The speakers even come with the appropriate wire harness so there was no splicing, soldering, or wire nuts involved. Just unplug and remove the old speakers and install and plug in the new. Speakers fit perfectly and sound slightly better than my stock speakers (much clearer). Fast shipping as well.

Pros: Comes with exact wiring harness so wiring was as simple as plugging in.

Cons:

Excellent speakers! Brought for my 2014 Kia Optima front dashboard! I had to use harness from old speakers and could only mount passenger side with one screw instead of two!
