2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited standard audio system wit nav unit (8.4AN)
My install for front door speakers, and the disconnect of the front A pillar speakers. Sound staging was good enough with the Focal's alone, the extra 3.5" in the front were too harsh and shreiking. Disconnecting them really sound amazing, try for yourself after the front door install see how you like it.
I will not be placing speakers in the rear since the rear stock speakers provide a lot of bass, its almost like having mid-bass speakers. Which is a very good set-up.
Next week weather permitting I will be installing a 4 channel amplifier instead of the planned 5 channel. I will amp the front speakers and bridge the other 2 for the subwoofer. Guide, pics and tips to follow.
Pair of Focal 6.5" CA1
Metra 82-6901 6x9 adapters (turned out useless,with some work you could make it fit but I found wood template was better)
Hushmat 10151 Sound Dampening 4 sq ft (used as a baffle not on the door skin since the door skin was behind the door electrical panel and not worth the hassle of disconnecting everything)
Instead of the metra brackets I went with 1/4" MDF wood and cut it to size.
However as mentioned by a few other people now that the mounting depth isn't as small as originally thought we can probably use a lot of 6x9's on the market.
Front Mounting Depth is 3.25" (with the exception of that plastic "stick" it can be cut, see guide for more details)
I assume the rear mounting depth to be the same since it's in a plastic speaker basket and I dont see why it would change since there is no extra bulk on the rear doors)
