Vibe optisound. Comes with a complete kit to either upgrade, or with loom to add tweeters (if your van never had them). Mostly plug and play.

If you know your way around an install, you can buy the Vibe slick 6c component speakers. source the bits yourself and it it works out a little cheaper.

lots of threads with general instructions, and vide on YouTube. I bought the 6c speakers and did it all myself. I think I posted in 'what did you do to your van' with details.

Massive upgrade and sounds excellent off factory headunit.

I got a Audison APK165p set from Amazon a few years back, sound is fantastic but I'm not into loud music. They can go to 240w max so an amplifier is an option if you feel it necessary.

I fitted ESX QXE-32 speakers on the spot where the tweaters are supposed to be it was a mess getting those in lots of modification of the plastic and airduct underneath and with my 2-din radio i used the signal forr the speakers in the rear(later switched cabels by moddifing the iso harness so these are now front and the door is rear) but if you go for one with less depth its probably easyer to install and then you can have extra speakers instead of just a tweeter probably the Alpine SXE-0825s will fit

Check out Crown Custom Audio. I bought my door speakers and tweeters from here.

Not sure which kit I got now, but the site seems to have more options now.

I don’t have the caddy at the minute but looking to order speakers to minimise downtime once it’s returned. Is 2018 highline swb van likely to have dash tweeters from factory? I have the CarPlay discover media setup

I ordered the ones for tweeters in the end & turns out mine had factory wiring & tweeters. Upgraded the speakers but spare harness. Oh well

I’m running some BLAM 8inch speakers in mine with the tweeters, If I was to do again though would go for the 6.5 in door and a dedicated sub

Only had my van 2 weeks, noticed straight away there was no bass from drivers side, not investigated further as just expecting the speaker to be blown so ordered a pair of Focal ICVW165 units from fleabay, hopefully will be a big improvement.

Theres so many choices really and considering its in a van cab then any majors differences in quality will be negligable.. you can get adequate replacements for 30-40£ but myself am just going staright in with Focal Speakers as they are renowned to be up with the highest quality drivers made. However if its power and loudness you are after then id suggest looking at Pioneer.
