Any Way to add Beats speakers/sub after purchase

I have 2012 300C with the Alpine, wondering if you are able to purchase the Beats speakers and sub after purchase to upgrade speakers and add sub.

Thanks

I am sure there is...but in all honesty for the money that you will spend, you might as well buy a small amp and woofer/enclosure to tuck into the corner of the trunk.

I have the BEATS audio and I am not that impressed...it is only marginally better than the alpine system IMO.

I agree. It's okay for a stock system, but I certainly wouldn't pay any money to try and replicate it. You can buy better, cheaper aftermarket stuff and have a much better sound.

I've experimented with several OEM "upgraded" systems on several LX's and two Ram trucks. None of them really did much to improve the sound, IMHO, especially when you consider what the dang things cost.

In my experience, a better bang for the buck is going aftermarket. Better stuff, better specs, better sound, better price. All in all, it's BETTER!

We owned a 300C with the Beats system for the weekend and our current 300C has the Alpine. Personally I don't see much difference in sound quality.

Anybody know how the Karmin Hardon system rates compared to the Alpine and Beats? I have that in my 2012 AWD "Limited". Slightly off topic but related kinda...lol Just wondering

It is the Harmon Kardin system and I didn't care for it when I listened to it either. I'd consider it a slight step down from the Alpine and Beats systems.

IMO none of them can match what you can do aftermarket for the money.

Mods (2005 C): Stereo only, PAC SNI, Peripheral CHYX, XM Commander, AudioControl four.1, MTX TA5604, MTX TA5601, Polk MMC6500, Polk MMC690, JL CS212R-W0 (2013 C): None..........yet
