Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

I haven't pulled off the panels to look yet, but Crutchfield says its 6x9 in the front and 6.5 in the rear.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

6x9s in the front door are a new shape and not at all aftermarket shaped. Crutchfield will send you generic adapter that fits many vehicles. But the height of the speaker off the door metal will be different, will be closer to metal. so be careful of speaker magnet getting close to door glass. And the sound will be odd because the speaker will be further from the door trim.
6.5s in the rear door are a shape nissan has used for a long time. good install kits exist.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

I've been looking into replacing the factory speakers on my SV crew cab and from what I have read online you shouldn't replace the factory speakers with a regular aftermarket speaker due to the ohms. Apparently most aftermarket speakers are 4 ohms but the factory ones are only 2 ohms. I'm having an under seat powered sub installed in a few days and plan on asking the car audio guy about this while I'm there.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

Me again. When I spoke with a sales consultant at Crutchfield they confirmed that the info I had seen online is accurate.....you shouldn't replace your factory speakers with aftermarket speakers unless you plan on replacing the factory amp with an aftermarket amp (or amps).

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

There's a whole lot that goes into that discussion.
voltage out of the IC is based on source material and gain. so for a given song at a given volume setting, a speaker with impedance of 4ohms has (approximately) half the current and so half the power applied, compared to a 2 ohm speaker (going to 2 ohms is a easy way for OEMs to get more volume for less cost than changing the output IC)
So if your problem is it's not loud enough, then going to 4 ohms is definitely going the wrong way.
But there are 2ohm aftermarket speakers available. But that replacement opens up a whole, heated discussion on audio quality.
Assuming you have a base grade audio 6 speaker system, then a powered sub is a great option. Factory system will roll off about 60hz. so a powered sub will fill in a frequency range that directly affects your perception of loudness, without changing the factory EQ in the mid-band.

if you still need more volume then the best is a external amp, with some powerful EQ capability either in a new head unit, or a sound processor like the Rockford 3sixty.3. Without that you're EQ is at best luck and guessing.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

I just did this. Used 6.5 coax in rear and 6.5 components in the front. The rears fit without an adapter but you have to take a small slice of the door about half way around the opening to enlarge it. The front fits with adapters but you have to modify them for the hole pattern a bit and there's a bolt for the window track that gets in the way of the adapter as well. The dash tweeters need some straps or custom mounts but it's pretty straight forward.
As for the factory 2ohm speakers they just suck. I replaced everything because I added a powered sub and nothing was loud enough. I recommend an amp or switching to a decent head unit. I went with a new head unit and it powers the replacement speakers much better then the stock/stock setup. Much louder and cleaner sound.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

I purchased my 2017 Titan SV King on Black Friday weekend. Best Buy put in SPE-series Alpines in doors, 4-ohms. They didn't change out the dash speakers. Sound is better, but not much. Not much bass to speak of. I talked to a Audio shop. and he recommends a subwoofer and Kenwood amp (1000 watts), and a line converter. He said to leave the Alpines in since I already paid for them. I'm wondering if the door speakers should be put back to 2-ohm speakers, or replace the head unit too. The factory radio has navigation and backup camera. I know there is a harness kit that allows using OE camera and voltage. But navigation will be lost. No biggy. I could get a carplay system and use my iPhone for navigation.

Should I just see how it sounds after subwoofer installed? He hasn't got back to me on cost yet.
Should I just say, replace HU with a CARplay system along with subwoofer? Then I don't have to worry about ohms.

BTW, I'm 62 years old. I'm only into reasonable quality sound. I don't want to blow the glass off the truck.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

I'd like to replace everything but the head unit, but don't wanna 1) tear my brand new truck apart, or 2) ruin any of the stock head unit's functionality.

So I'm thinking about repeating what I did in my '05 T: Leave the stock stereo alone and just run my iPod directly into an amp, replace the rear door speakers with 2 high quality 6.5", and add a single sub box with a 10" sub. Worked fantastically for many years. Sounded awesome. This is not the most elegant looking solution, and it does cause the stock stereo to not have speakers in the rear (but why do I care, as the driver ) but it does eliminate having to tear into the dash and front doors. And when you switch trucks it's very easy to remove your expensive aftermarket audio equipment. Of course, Murphy's Law came into play, and I ended up keeping my '05 many years longer than I ever thought I would.

If you like the factory headunit then just add an amp via a line out converter. Good door speakers with good power to them might be all you end up wanting. I wanted additional functionality (carplay, backup cam and dvd player) which is why I switched the head unit. I was going to add an amp regardless but the aftermarket head unit (kenwood ddx9903s) powers the infinity speakers I put it without a problem.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

I got mine done. Picked it up this evening. All I can say is WOW. This thing sounds incredible. This is the best sounding system I have ever had. And I still need to fine tune it. The Fox box fits perfect in the crew cab. The box does not stick out from the seat anywhere. We mounted the amps and lc2i on the back wall. I left in the factory head unit. My installer was quite impressed with tthe sound from the factory unit. I will get picks of everything tomorrow. We went with an lc2i instead of the lc7. The lc7 I bought was bad so I returned it.

I purchased an SV model that doesn’t have the fancy Rockford Fausgate system so I changed all of my factory speakers with aftermarket 2 ohm Rockford Fausgate 6.5” 3 way speakers in all four doors. I purchased the adapter and from Chrutchfield and everything worked just fine. The sound quality is so much better! I also installed a Rockville 8” powered subwoofer that I bought off of Amazon and it sounds pretty amazing for such a low cost subwoofer. Here are some pics of the sub and the parts I used from Crutchfield including the speaker mounting brackets I used for all four doors and the speaker wiring harness so I didnt have to cut the factory wiring to install the new speakers. You don’t necessarily need these, but I prefer to do an install as clean as possible.

Re: 2017 Nissan Titan Factory Speakers Replacement

I removed the dash speaker from my 2017 Titan SV King Cab. It is 4 ohm, 40 watt max, 20 watt nominal. It measured 2 3/4". I replaced it with a Polk Audio tweeter, 4 ohm. It came with its own bass blocker. I don't know what the factory door speaker ohm rating was. The guy at Best Buy destroyed it to use the factory plastic mount for new 6x9 Alpine. But it now has 4ohm tweeter and 4 ohm coaxial, in parallel, bringing load to 2 ohms, I guess. Anyway, it sounds very good, other than the weak Nissan head unit driving the aftermarket speakers. I do know the rear door speakers were 2 ohm, 40 watt max, 20 watt nominal. Eventually may add an amp. I did put in a Kicker Hideaway subwoofer under the rear seat. I installed the Polk Audio tweeters using universal radio strap bracket with holes. This is stiffer than the plumbing strap from the hardware store. I bent the bracket so the holes would align with the mounting holes in the dash. The tweeter has mounting option to use screw in the bottom of the speaker mount and bolt to the universal strap bracket. Then I angled the tweeter slightly toward the occupant. The picture of the Polk had to be taken from outside the windshield, so there is some reflection glare. BTW, I shined a light into the hole where the factory dash speaker was, I could see light below on my floorboard. Good to know if I ever want to do a rewire.

I also purchased an SV model without the Rockford system since it wasn't available with a single cab configuration. I had Car Toys replace the door speakers with 2 ohm Rockfords and added 2 new Rockfords on the back deck. The adapter they used meant no wire cutting and although I don't have a subwoofer the sound is quite good. Maybe because its the smaller area but the sound is more than satisfactory. In fact, when I added the upgraded Nissan HU with Nav it sounded even better. YMMV.
