According to Crutchfield they won't fit in the front doors but they'll fit in the back.

Top mount = 2-7/8"
Bottom mount = 3-5/16"

Keep us informed

I've been researching for speakers also. It's confusing. I was also looking at the Rockford Fosgate's because the reviews are pretty good. The ones I looked at are the 1693's I think? Crutchfield says they only fit the rear. However, I would be curious to see if that is true. According to them they only have 2 sets of 6x9's that will fit and they are sub-par brands. The Mopar ones that are Kicker brand P/N#77KICK06 fit both the front and rear just fine... If anyone could find the dimensions on those and maybe compare with the Fosgate's they might actually work. From most of my research it really appears that just about any fairly low profile 6x9's would actually fit... If you get the Fosgate's you could try to fit them in the front first, if they fit then order another pair for the rear's. If you discover they fit I would really be interested as I think those are really the best bang for the buck.. fry's even has them for about $40 and sears sells them for $49... Keep us posted with what you find out.

Anyone know the best way to get to the speakers? I tried prying the cover off directly in front of the speaker but that hasn't worked. Do i need to take off the whole door panel?

the grill pries right off. There's an indentation near the bottom for your screwdriver.
Have you tried this on a 2011? I tried that and it didn't work for me. It started to split the grill. Maybe I will try a different door.
Do you have any pics of an install?

Finally got the speakers installed. I can confirm the Rockford Fosgates will fit in all 4 doors. They sound much better than the stock speakers.I am very happy with the result. I tried to take pictures but due to the weather I had to work in my garage and there just wasn't enough light.

Thank you for the information. I think I will order two pairs of Rockford Fosgate speakers as well.

Those rockford fosgates look great. I have a 2010 and I think I might order two pairs of them. How much better is the audio quality? I also have the base 4 speaker system without tweeters in the dash.

I installed my four new speakers earlier today and the audio quality improvement is substantial. For $80 this is a great upgrade. Easy install too.

if they fit in the front they should definately fit in the back,,,well on my 2009 patriot the front and rear speaker holes were exactly the same size and i installed 4 of the same exact pioneer speakers in all 4 slots...with the correct brackets/adapters i think anything would fit.

and as far as the audio improvement...the speakers i took out (base system speakers) were only 15watts each....kinda cheasy...so.....imagine

Has anyone tried the Alpine SPR-69Cs? There's a ridiculous deal on Amazon.com right now and I'd like to hear from someone with first-hand experience.
