Speaker sizes

Thinking about upgrading the speakers on the Murano, does anyone know all the speaker sizes on the non-bose system with NAV?

Another member, Assad, posts here pretty frequently. Not from a mechanical standard, but electronic, he's damn near torn his whole car down doing various mods. He might be able to tell ya.


Possibly one of these documents might help.

The sizes are 6.5 inches front and back (see av.pdf page 12).
Remember, they are component speakers with a separate tweeters above the dash and the crossover is built in the tweeter. The hardest part was finding an adapter for the speaker connector, I had to cut the wires.

Thanks Assad, how about the center channel one above the radio? Is there a speaker located there? Also can I get any 6.5" not necessarily components type speakers for the front and rear doors if I leave the dash mount tweeters alone.

If not component and you leave the tweeter in place, then you will need to adjust the highs on your audio system, otherwise the sound may be distorted.

If you want to go with coaxial speakers all the way, then you can just unplug the tweeters. The tweeters are easy to remove, and just unplug the cables. This way you can 4 coaxial speakers ( 2 front + 2 back).

They look really good, believe me anything you get will sound better than those factory speakers.

You are going to face 3 issues with the component speakers ( same issue I faced when replacing my component speakers).
1- The set that you showed me has a separate crossover, which means that you will have to route the speaker cables from the audio source to the crossover, then the crossover will split the cable going to the tweeter and the woofer. If you are using the factory head unit, then you will have to cut the 2 front speaker cable and extend them to the crossover ( 4 cables total).
2- There is not enough room inside the door panel to place the crossovers, so you will have to find another location. I put my crossover inside the glove compartment and secured them with velcro.
3- That tweeter may not fit inside the nissan factory tweeter location, so you will have to do some mod to secure the tweeter properly or find another location. Then you will need to provide additional wires to the new tweeters.


My recommendation would be to buy 4 coaxial speakers and then just unplug the 2 factory tweeters up front ( it is very easy to do). This way you can use the factory head unit and you won't have to cut any cables.
The difference between the component and coaxial is not that much in terms of sound quality, unless you are a hardcore audiophile.

Important:
Also make sure you ask them if them carry the speaker door adapter for the Nissan Murano. As you can see, those MB Quart speakers have 4 screw holes, while the nissan speakers has only 3 (see pic above), so you will need an adapter to make it fit inside the door properly.

Also, I just noticed that in the specs of the MB Quart speakers:
- 4 ohms impedance

Make sure the speakers you get are rated at 2 ohm impedance.

Thanks for the info I will talk it over at the audio installers near me what option to do. Its a shame how awful the sound quality in this 3rd gen murano. My 1st gen that had oem speaker had better quality sound.

Can you guys also post the difference between the new and old speakers? Is it worth the money? Is it a night and day difference? I have the 2016 MO platinum with the Bose system. I am wondering if just and only replacing the speakers would make a difference on the sound. Also, coaxial vs component. What was the best? This thread is very important, please adjourn it properly! (Thanks guys for all these)

Don't have the Bose, so I cannot say.

My speakers were regular, but saw a big difference just by replacing the amp.

Bose speakers are ususally pretty good, so I would try replacing the amp first before moving to the speakers.
Component for front and coaxial back.

Thanks Assad! Lets see if someone with the Bose system has replaced just the speakers. You have done so amazingly with your murano.
