Default Need advice of speaker replacement '06 convertible

I am looking to upgrade the speakers on our 2006 convertible. From the research I have done on the forum looks like the door speakers are 6.5 " in diameter. I have not been able to confirm size of rear speakers in quarter panel trim area.

I would greatly appreciate any feed back from those that have up graded their convertible speakers. Thinking i would leave the stock head for now and just upgrade speakers to start. I know this is not ideal but figured upgrading the speakers to start could not hurt the sound quality.

Thanks in advance for any insight on best speakers for cost with stock unit and size needed on back speakers etc. I am guessing that back speakers are the same size as door speakers but want to confirm before I order them in. Also checking to see if same wire conversion kit used on rear speakers as door speakers.

There was a thread here from 2011 called:

Remind me NEVER!!! again to change out the rear speakers in a 2006 PT VERT

I can't seem to link to it, but it exists and should come up if you search. It had a lot of advice and good pictures.

On my convertible, I found a $100 head unit with a bit more power gave me all the performance I needed?

I think you will find this interesting. A member bought a very affordable OEM MOPAR subwoofer on eBay for the PT wagon and then adapted it for the convertible. I've had these MOPAR subs in both my PT Cruisers and they really sound good.

And here's link to the subwoofer on eBay. Several members here have bought from this guy and he's great to deal with. It's an auction but the subs usually sell for under $80.

Thanks Handy that was me.

I did not change my rear speakers out. I install a set on the backs of the rear seats. When the top is down the OEM speakers are hard to hear.

Here's a post with some pictures:

Thanks to all of you that got back to me on this. I will give good thought to replacing rear speakers but I run a body shop so should be pretty straight forward if I decide it is worth the effort.

Looking forward to better sound as the stock speakers are not that stellar. Any upgrade should make a noticeable improvement.

The rear speakers in my 05 Vert were six by eights. Yes that's an odd size but they do sell Them. You could probably make six by nines fit if you are inclined. . I am not certain the 06 are the same.
