    It really is pretty awesome, a lot of people think I have an aftermarket system.

    the 18-speaker/900w system is nuts. I fucking love it.

    Although sometimes I feel the bass is too much, im on -4 from the middle. LOL
    I play music directly from Iphone or ipod. IMO streaming (bluetooth) music will never have the same quality as a wired setup.

    You’ll never find the replacement screened speaker grills to replace the blanks. I spent months trying to source them no luck.

    I’m in the same boat. Spent most of the winter looking and have reached out to all of the usual suspects (new and “junk” yards) and found nothing. Seems all of the upgrade kits were gone looong ago!

    I did the upgrade on my first 3 speaker ACRE to the 18 speakers and that was the only part that could not be sourced. They have no part number. They are not orderable. And not only did I search for months but Mark from Woodhouse AND Jon B couldn’t source them. The only option was to try to find a pair of doors from a wreck that had the 18 speakers and buy them both. Junk guys don’t want to part out the doors. Kind of expensive for two speaker grills. I ended up making my own from the default blanks.

    ViperJon - Did you buy bulk grille material and shape them off of the blank or modify the existing blanks? I was looking into bulk material but figured I would screw that up royally!

    yeah.. i've been looking for 6 months with no results. Mopar says they are back ordered.. this was 12 months ago! I bet the speakers can be bought from Harman/Karman, the speaker grills are the hard find.

    That speaker upgrade kit that’s now impossible to find was even cheap! It somehow made it past the Viper markup team, was extremely reasonable, and even came with a couple spare speakers if you started with the 12 speaker setup. I’m very glad I did it on my TA before it disappeared.

    I did the upgrade kit on my TA as well and the bass is now out of control. I usually have it on -5 or so, but it sounds AMAZING once you get the balance right.

    Not that easy. The blanks have the tabs to hold itself in place, you’d have to replicate that. You can’t just glue a piece of grill in there as nothing would hold it in. Using the blanks and if done neatly you can’t tell it from OEM unless you had a car to compare it to side by side.

    Given the information in the above link, saying that the speakers are "GreenEdge" high efficiency, it appears that the speakers are JBL models. ( JBL is in the Harman company group & also uses the GreenEdge trademark in its advertising)
