Replacement speakers

I have a 2014 Summit. A couple of the speakers are starting to buzz and are probably blown out. I will probably replace them. Has anyone replaces the speakers and if so, is there an aftermarket brand that should be considered?

Not sure how many miles you have on the vehicle but I've had speakers replaced under warranty a couple times.

I have replaced the OEM speakers in my 2012 Summit, still have them boxed up, they are near new. PM me if your interested in them.

I have a pair of OEM front door 6X9's, a pair of OEM read door speakers and the 3.5"dash center channel speaker.

Those aren't the ones I need. Thanks though!

Hey bobs4state,

Sorry to hear about your audio concern. Do you experience the speakers buzzing anytime there is audio playing, or does it vary depending on the media you are using (radio, iPod, steaming)? What type of UConnect system do you have in your Summit?

Thank you,

Thank you,
It is two speakers in particular. Either the speakers are blown (most likely) or the panels around them are buzzing. Regardess, it makes no difference what is playing. It is a Summit so it the top model - 8.4AN.

on certain songs (via USB), i can hear a slight crackling sound but these songs are the lower bit rate quality mp3. however, on the higher quality ones, its very crisp and clear and very much impressed with HK system. Streaming via blu-tooth i find is not great (like am radio almost) and much better via USB cord and USB drive.

Might want to try true CD quality music in your CD player (if you have one) or high quality MP3 >128 bit. If it still sounds bad, could very well be your speakers/hardware.
