I put Infinity Reference 075TX tweeters in the dash connected to the factory harness (so...in parallel with the door speaks), they come with decent crossovers.

Product page:

I used ABS sheet plastic from Amazon to make nice mounting plates, and used the factory push pins to attach them.

My door speakers are Reference 9603IX
Product Info:

I set the door speaker tweeter control to -3db to keep it from being to "bright"

Sounds awesome... I would would like to grab some fuller range dash speakers and then Bi-Amp them, but there's not a lot of 2.5 inch stuff that sounds great enough out there to make it worth the effort...

For you guys who did upgrade door speakers and run an amp did you still use the dash tweeters or just disconnected them? Is the dash tweeters running an inline crossover or does the head unit do that? I bought my '15 S used and did not have the RF stereo but has an aftermarket Sony DVD double din unit. Speakers sound like poop so I wanted to add an amp (older alpine 40x4) and some different speakers. Not looking to run ultra high end audio but need a little bit better then what I got. So if I buy some kicker 3 way 6x9's what would you guys do about the dash tweeters?
on mine i yanked the OEM tweeters out and swapped in my Focal K2's. the wires for the tweeters i did not use the OEM wires but actually ran new wires back to the door where i have the crossover installed and the wires will have to be connected to input side of the crossover labeled tweeters.

what i did with mine since some people complain of Focal's being too BRIGHT which i think they say the same thing about MB QUARTZ is i normally set my amp on high pass with gain control about 50-60% but i make all my EQ adjustments from the headunit and you can tweek the EQ settings particularily the 2.5kHz-10kHz until it sounds more nuetral/natural

I saw this was for a 2005 Titan. I have a 2007. Would it still be the 6x9 in the front doors and 6.5 in the back door? I keep getting different answers when I Google. Thanks guys!

No. You're being misled a little? I have a 2005 Titan and here is what I've replaced so far. Know that most if not all speakers are 4 ohm even if Crutchfield says 8 ohm. Having said that.. I have a 2005 titan with the RF system and I'm almost done replacing all of them.

Now.. let me state this clearly. Unless you are ready to pay a lot of money (I did) don't F with the speaker at the top of the center dash cluster. That plastic will be terribly brittle by now. The cost for a replacement non-NAV cluster surround is around 250... With Nav? 420 (and there went my tax refund).

Try this link from Crutchfield (note.. I don't own stock I'm just trying to help)

https://www.crutchfield.com/Car/outfitmycar/mycar.aspx?o=m&pg=2&g=400 - if that doesn't work just plug in your truck's year and trim level and look around.

Even Crutchfield is wrong on the "ohms" but they have a great worksheet. You only need to purchase the rear-door-speaker rings to get it. I'd suggest you purchase two pairs of their speaker adapters at the same time. The adapters will save you time adapting/resoldering the factory units: https://www.crutchfield.com/g_103100/Speaker-Wiring-Harnesses.html

Front door speakers - 6x9 4 ohm - Here is what I used for my Titan. You'll have to wiggle the speaker a bit and be creative as the factory 6x9 speaker mounting holes/mounting plastic don't match most speakers you can buy now.

Rear door (lower) speakers are 6.5 round speakers and you'll need an adapter you can get from Crutchfield to mount them

Rear door (upper) speakers are tiny but you can use the existing mounts you just have to resolder the speaker connector and use the existing mounting hardware to mimic the legacy speaker
https://www.crutchfield.com/p_13699048/JL-Audio-C1-075ct.html

Center speaker (RF only?) you'll have to use the existing mounts and re-solder the speaker connector but this speaker works:

They come in pairs... PM me if you want to buy the extra one I have.

This is the "Danger Will Robinson" replacement I talked about at the beginning.

The dashboard tweeters - here is my post for those:
https://www.titantalk.com/forums/titan-interior-discussion/421725-replaced-my-front-speakers-3d-printed-base-new-speakers-some-craftsmanship.html

My next step is trying to replace the subwoofer under the front seat but that will have to wait a bit.

I hope I've helped and good luck!

Stock speakers are 8 ohm...

Front doors are 6x9, rears are 6.5 and tweeters. I replaced in kind (size-wise,) but if I was to do it again I would buy two pairs of 6.5 components and use the front door 6.5 tweeters in the front dash. Most people buy an adapter for the front door and do that...

Apologies I'm reading from the beginning with quotes like:

"I got the door adapter plates from mjmauto (or similar) off ebay. 6x9 to 6.5 front door."

This is misleading and wrong. This is why I interjected... also to just show what I've done so far.

I'm sorry if my wording didn't go well. It wasn't my intention.

Peace out.

I can't speak for all the different speaker options in the Gen1 Titans, but the RF systems have 2ohm speakers.

The RF system in my 2005 has 4 ohm speakers all around. That limited my choices on replacement speakers. Here is a picture of the RF center speaker (3.5") and the dash tweeter speakers. The remaining were all also 4 ohm. The only speaker I haven't replaced (and thus I don't know the ohmage) is the woofer under the driver's seat.

So, you've got two amps running one sub??


Just so you know since I have done a complete audio system in my titan. You have 6x9's up front and 6.5" in the rear. Our trucks also have a large tweeter in the top dash section, however I disconnected mine due to the fact if you buy quality speakers and a 4ch amp that is also good there is no need for them. If you are a fan of loud music like I am then you will want to dynomat your doors to keep the vibration down. Good speakers all depends on how much you want to spend. I use JL audio 6x9 in the front and 6.5" in the rear would be great...match that with a good 4ch amp like a JL or kicker or even a alpine and you would be good to start with. I went more extreme as you can see in my signature
