Got Alpine speakers and with a 3D printed adapter found in this forum, bigger ones in the back.

They sound better than the stock ones

After some reading, I did the following speaker upgrade for my 2015 spark EV:

front: JBL GTO429 (RMS 5W-50W or 35W, 3 ohms) from Amazon for $46.95
rear: Pioneer TS-A4676R (30W nominal, 4 ohms) from sonicelectronix.com for $44.99
cable (for rear speakers): Meta 72-9300 from sonicelectronix.com for $5.99 x 2

Overall these speakers produce much-improved sound than that came from the stock ones. Because of their size, there is not really much bass that can be produced by these smaller speakers. I do think a subwoofer is needed for a fuller and more satisfying sound. Anyway, I am happy about the result for now.

I think the stock speakers do a good enough job. To each his own.

New to me 2016 owner here. I just want to thank all of you for setting my expectations SO LOW for the audio quality of this car. After reading/researching adding speakers/amps/subwoofers etc, I was pleasantly surprised at how decent it sounds in factory form haha.

I daily drive a 2015 LT2 and agree that the sound system seems quite adequate to me. I listen at home when sound quality is a significant factor.

Then again, we all have differing priorities.
