Boston sound system

My 2008 Overland has the Boston sound system. The drivers door speaker Is blown and I believe the right rear door also. Im sure all 6 could use replacement. I see I can get all 6 OEM Boston speakers new for about $240. The system sounds extremely good for a stock system and has no problem vibrating the truck. The stock sub woofers are really good, but If there's something else that's better and plug and play, I'll go with that.


It doesn't matter If the guy next to you doesn't know your racing winning Is winning.

Kicker used to offer a direct replacement speaker and amp upgrade specifically for the WK but I’m not sure if that has been discontinued or not

You can still buy the complete kicker system, it's pricey though, probably better to go aftermarket. Check out for the subwoofer, it uses a special connector to hook it up. You can go for the speakers and amp only but you may notice a 'lack of bass' due to the amp's eq settings tuned to work with the whole setup.

I have the front 4 speakers (driver/passenger doors & 2 in the dash) that appear to be in good shape (aka not blown nor tears/holes). Vehicle had about 120k miles when I pulled them and only pulled them because I already had nice aftermarket speakers from another vehicle I sold around that time. Honestly couldn't tell the difference, but wasn't going to swap them again just because.

I do have the Boston Acoustics package.

PM me if you are interested.
