Default Door speaker: stock vs aftermarket

So I'm no noob when it comes to speakers, but I still don't understand some things. Why do stock speakers have more bass than aftermarket comps and coaxs? And if u can get decent bass, u have to basic reconstruct the door and fortify it. I want some comps in my new ride, but I've never had comps out do stocks. I feel like i'd be wasting money. These now have rear view shaking bass and no comps have ever done that for me. I'm thinking about trying to amp theses and add subs.

speakers aren't supposed to produce bass...midbass at MOST...no speaker should play below 60hz ish...most even higher...that's all supposed to be for subwoofers...when u dip that low, u risk damaging the speaker and with a stock speaker/headunit, youre probably clipping the hell outta them.

After markets are designed for clarity, not bass. You can get some with decent mid bass not not usually as much as factory's. They do this IMO to eliminate the use of aftermarket equipment that ppl would want to add.

I wish they had the bass of factory but the power and clarity of afternarket.

Most factory speakers are paper cones. Paper cones have better tonal quality. The problem with paper cones in the doors is humidity. Humidity will deform speakers. Also factory HUs have built in bass cancelling as volume is increased so they don't distort. Most people who just replace factory speakers and use factory HU complain about the performance after installation. People who just change out factory HU blow out factory speakers. After market HUs produce like 15 watts RMS not 50 like on box. the real specs are in the back of manual. If you were to install aftermarket HU and speakers you should be happy

You guys are still missing the mark. A lot of vehicles have factory audio components(speakers and amp) that are tuned specifically for the vehicle to get that full sound. If you replace the speakers but not the amp you can lose bass. Aftermarket speakers aren't optimized for your vehicle and they definitely don't match your factory EQ curve. There is a lot that goes into making a good speaker sound great in a car. Car makers have their own design process, but the aftermarket can do it better. Can you do it better?
