Having had a base express and my 2018 alpine there is a different in speakers. The alpine use bigger magnets snd a better woofer cone (not just paper) they are also a 2ohm speaker and not a 4 ohm (stock base dash speakers are 8 ohm too). Alpine systems also have an amplifier under the dash and not just powered by the radio with a dedicated sub output. Alpine also comes with a 150w 8” sub, 2 ohm 3 dash speakers and tweeters in the headliner. Stock for stock it is a noticeableAppreciate the replies thus far but - the question remains. Are any of the speakers actually aftermarket or Alpine? I've googled the numbers on the back of the 6 I've replaced.. all OEM Mopar. Happy with my factory replacements I've funded, but I'm curious what it is that made the "premium" stereo ALPINE.. I'll reach out to RAM but expect no response.
Difference with an alpine and non alpine system. The 2 ohm speakers allow more power with less resistance than the base 4 ohm system. Upgrading the front doors is pointless in a stock system as they are mid range only. Back doors are full range so an upgrade is good idea, same for dash.
