2019 CX-5 Touring Non-Bose Speaker Upgrade

Hey guys! I bought a ‘19 CX-5 Touring with non-Bose. Needless to say, the stock speakers are absolute trash. I had a 2012 Cadillac SRX with Bose before so it is a huge downgrade in the sound. I don’t know much about anything. So I guess I’m asking, what’s the easiest way to make this sound better? I want to upgrade speakers but I want pretty decent base without a sub and don’t know which ones to buy.

just curious did you read ANY of the previous threads?

"So I guess I’m asking, what’s the easiest way to make this sound better?"

Do you have a budget in mind? Are you DIY?

With no information and just a random person responding to another random person:
Upgrade the front door speaker to ANY speaker pair over $75 and report back.
What brands? Oh goodness this should be good thread.

In general stick with a top name brand (yeah yeah there are boutique brands out there that sound amazing). Most manufactures now have a entry mid and top tier to the product line.. so go middle of the road.

*edit for giggles some not so obvious selections
https://www.morelhifi.com/ (CHA - CHING!)
https://ddaudio.com/ (would recommend)

perhaps where to browse a bunch of options at once:

Just to set expectations though .. the problem is ~most~ of the decent sounding speakers need a bit more power than the approximately 12 watts RMS provided by the factory. Look for a speaker with high sensitivity rated in DB .. 89DB or higher. But hey you can upgrade the speakers and then add Mo Powa Babeh later!

oh and if you read this thread: https://www.mazdas247.com/forum/ind...lity-difference-between-bt-and-usb.123874639/

you will know if you start with a trash audio source.. your gonna have a bad time even if you upgrade the speakers.

down the rabbit hole..
