Greetings, new to this forum, you all seem to have a much greater knowledge of what's going on with these vehicles vs the club site. I've had my GX for about 30k miles and love it, and by browsing this forum I seem to have really gotten lucky in finding a non-nav, kdss sport model locally at a decent price. I did't really know they were rare when I was shopping for one, I just wanted non-nav and snagged the first one I found.

My passenger front door 6x9 is blown. I found a ton of info on the ML stereo systems, but I don't need that. I want to just get confirmation from you all that the system is in fact 4ohm for the non-nav? I assume most 4ohm 6x9's will work but I'm guessing I don't want a 3-way. Am I looking for a 2-way speaker, subwoofer, or full range? I don't know speakers well enough to know the terminology to find the right speaker. Have you all seen a tutorial or recommended parts list for replacing the non-nav speakers but keeping the stock head unit?

If I'm replacing a blown 6x9, should I replace the 2" and 1" also, and what about the rear doors, are they 6x9 also?

Thanks.. i have some other issues that I'll post about later, hope you all can help get my ride back to 100%.

I just had my non ML system totally replaced ... Pioneer head unit with Carplay, and JBL Stadium GTO 960C, 6x9 component set and added the 2" mid for the front doors, the rear doors got some Alpine 6.5" coaxial I had left over from a previous vehicle. All powered by a JL Audio 900/5HD amp. I am still working on the sub setup as when I started I had no clue what the factory sub was, its a 6.5", and I thought it was an 8". Now that I am home from Hammers I will get back after it.

There was a lot of discussion on ML replacement speakers on GXOR. I believe you can just get 4ohm speakers to match and replace at will.

I also have not found much info on the non-ml system speakers. We do know tgat they are 4 ohm and use the pioneer amp. I’m thinking I’ll eventually replace the lower speaker with a 6.5 or 6.75 component set and just eliminate the middle speaker. I’m not sure how all the crossover and stuff work on the oem setup. I’ll replace the rear doors with a 6.75 2 or 3 way. Replace the sub with Kicker 6.75 shallow mount. I’m going to try and maintain the current oem pioneer amp for now.
Switching out my head unit this weekend for an Android unit.

Btw, you can not search on gxor if you don’t have fb or at least I’ve never figured it out. “No results found”

Try this link from crutchfield. If it doesn't work then you can use their selector tool.

I just did this replacement like 3 weeks ago. Surprisingly straightforward to fix actually, and I'm not particularly handy.
I used these speakers

You will need these brackets

And these plugs

I did have to solder the wiring directly to the woofers because the crimp connectors didn't attach to the leads on the speaker.

No problems, everything sounds good. But then I discovered my driver side tweeter was no longer working too. Never ends.
