If you have not yet heard it use www.dodge.com to build an SXT basic with the musicgate sound system and then search your local dealers inventory online for one. After finding a dealer online that shows one in stock, call them to make sure they have one on the lot to listen to.
If you buy a Caliber before hearing the musicgate sound system you will hate yourself...IT ROCKS!
Yes, I HAVE IT!
I took apart the liftgate speakers and found out that they are full range 3-1/2" speakers(no tweeter). I wonder if the dash ones are the same, and could benifit from an upraded better quality coax. I also put to rest whether the liftgate speakers are Boston Acoustics......they are! But they can be upgraded easily with a same size speaker.......putting any thing larger would require cutting a hole in the liftgate and mounting them on the outside(at least from what I can tell). Boston Acoustics makes a nice Coaxial 3-1/2" model# S35.

In fact the it is so my driverside dash speaker sounds like it's showing signs of too much volume. On some songs (not many) I hear little sounds like someone is talking through foil.
I've already talked to guys in the repair hole on how is the best way to take out the speaker and replace it. If it gets worse I will do just that and post pictures of a How-To-Repair.
In my opionion kicker is well known for it's subwoofers...not so much in the way of other speakers. Quite possibly a speaker uprgade by any company may not be a huge difference in sound for the amount of money spent.ejfb said:I'd still wait for the Kicker Mopar upgrade before changing out much on the MusicGate, should be plug and play.
ejfb said:You could possibly be right, but the kicker upgrade has made a big difference for the standard speaker system, and I'm sure Mopar (Chrysler) wouldn't go to all the trouble to make an upgrade for the MusicGate speakers, if it didn't do something worthwhile.
