Wanted to see if I could get some audio advice. I own a 2018 LEAF S. The stock speakers are just so bad.. I really wanted to replace them. To me.. they just don't have any clarity.. seem to be missing high range frequencies (and generally just not good). Although it does seem that the 2nd Generation LEAF does have better stock speakers than the 1st generation. At least the magnet seems to be a little bigger than the one in the '11-17 models.
So I found some speakers on sale and just put them in today. I have to say the sound is better in someways.. but actually worse in other ways. I'm a bit disappointed. I'm sure if I did a new head unit, an amp, and a sub, it would put it in a whole new world. But I don't think I am up for all that. I was hoping the speaker upgrade would make a bigger difference.
So I do hear much better clarity now (high frequencies are back and things sound more full range now). But it seems that the stock speaker actually had better bass and low frequencies. I guess I'm just really surprised. Did I just pick bad speakers.. or are they just not matched well to the stock head unit (an ohms issue)?
Any advice would be much appreciated. Should I sell my replacements and try a different brand?
The 4 replacement speakers that I put in are the:
