Bought 2 pairs of Infinity Reference 3032CFX to replace the three dash speakers in my 21' Big Horn 1500 with Alpine. Swapped the speakers out and was expecting a significant improvement. To our surprise, neither wife and I noticed anything different. I took a closer look at the OEM speakers, and found them to be quite different from the 19' or 20' made in Mexico. The 21' OEM speakers are made in China with much bigger magnet, and has comparable weight (even slightly higher) vs. Infinity:

Has anyone else have a chance to experiment with 21's dash speakers? I am considering returning the Infinity's.

I put new high-end Boze speakers in my daughters old PT Cruiser and nobody could hear a difference either.

Best regards,

I put the Infinitys in a 2020 HK, no significant diff. Door speakers went Polk Compnenet, bigger difference.

Now if we could only tame that obnoxious sub...

I like Quality sound and I cant complain. Not sure if the added expense to upgrade would be worth it. So I will stay stock.

those stock ones definitely look beefier than my 19's did. I went reference in my dash (3), and did notice a difference. Your stock ones actually look bigger than the Inf's.

Curious. What’s the cone material? Surround material ? Tweeter?

I saw the same with the speakers that came out of my '20 Alpine system. The magnets were much smaller than the Infinities I replaced them with. Definitely a sound improvement for me no matter what kind of music I listen to. Even talk radio sounds better :ROFLMAO:

I'm interested in the materials in the '21 speakers too. The dash speakers in my '20 Alpine system had paper cones, and what looked like rubber surrounds. I don't know if there was a tweeter because there was fabric covering the speaker, which I didn't remove.

You can for a few hundred bucks and hours of work. My advice though, just unplug it for free with 5 minutes of work.

I will post pictures of mine when I take them out. I replaced my base front corners in my 14 bighorn with the kickers and they sounded much better than these alpines.
