I've known a few that just replaced the soundbar speakers with some Kickers, and that was good for them. I did the same thing and it helped, but still wasn't what I wanted (I'm old and deaf). I had the basic non-Infinity stereo (7 watts RMS), so I replaced that along with all the speakers with Polk db651's. Much needed improvement.

I have heard nothing but good things from the kicker replacements.
But you can replace them with any 6.5" speaker of your choice, i believe the stock system runs 2ohm.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

I have the entire kicker system with the sub and its phenomenal. Bass is strong and not super punchy but just gives you the "bump" in your music, I also go the upgraded tweeters from quadratec and it sounds way better than stock.

FYI i have an entire infinity system for sale if your interested

I have heard people who upgraded from the Infinity system to the Kickers say that it is a huge improvement. If I were upgrading, I would go with the Kickers and if you do a search there is at least one other thread on this subject... . The thread even goes into detail about cheap places to buy the factory upgrade so it is a plug n play install.

I feel your pain. I just traded a truck with an awesome sound system and couldn't believe the JK cracker box set up.

My new JVC speakers and amp just came in and I can't wait to get them installed.
