Are the 3.5" Dash speakers worth changing? With stock speakers I don't really hear them.

I replaced mine with a set of infinity reference 3.5's and it made a huge difference.

I am planning on upgrading them very soon. I think you hear them far more than you think.
Pop off the grills and unplug them, you'll see how low and flat your sound stage is w/o em.

I agree - those are the speakers I used too, and it made it so much clearer the difference is amazing. Well worth it, and an easy changeover if you use the crutchfield speaker harness adapters. go for it!

Yes! If you only change one pair of speakers, it should be the dash speakers.

Unplug the center one (if you have it) - that'll help a lot too.

I changed mine, and now that's all I hear. I'm eventually going to eliminate the corner dash speakers, and go with full components in the front doors.

Bringing this back from the dead. Just bought Kicker KS35's. got them 10 bucks off at Crutchfield as I sprung for the "scratch and dent" option lol. 40 bucks shipped.. cant beat that. Anyone have any experience with these? The reviews section only had positive things to say about them but figured I would ask here as im PUMPED! I also have not looked in to how to install these. Some info on that would be cool too!

I have a 2014 Express and just replaced the dash speakers with the Kicker KS35's and it made a huge difference to me. I am extremely pleased with the sound difference from the stock speakers. Very easy plug-in-play upgrade.

I just watched a video on how to install them. Looks super easy, however I'm wondering about hooking up the harness that Crutchfield supplies. Is it obvious which is ground and positive? as they are just press connectors on the speaker, I don't want to get them backwards and break anything.
