passenger side dash speaker

I was driving the other day and heard a poping nosie from my radio and a burnt electrical smell. No more sound out of the speakers so I turned it off. I turned it back on later and got sound from my driver side speaker. I smelled the other speaker and I am pretty sure it is shot. My question is why did they make it so hard to change out the front dash speakers. Also how do I go about changing them out and what is a good speaker to use in place. I figured a marine speaker would be best for the application. As far as my options for a 4x6 there isn't very much.

Is it possible to remove the speakers with out the dash coming off. I've seen a couple posts that say it can be done.

I just changed dash speakers in a 91yj. I removed the dash made it a lot easier to gain access to the speakers. You need to also lower (tilt) the windshield..............be carefull, I cracked one of the hinges

Well I went ahead and tried to remove the passenger side speaker without removing the dash. I was able to remove the 4 nuts holding it in pretty easy. Although I was not able to slide the speaker back far enough off the studs to remove it. Any ideas? Anyone do this without removing the dash?

I figured out an quicker way to replace the speakers well atleast the passenger side so far. I didn't replace the driver side speaker yet. I was able to remove all (4) nuts holding the speaker from behind the dash with very little problem. A 1/4" ratchet and a deep socket did the trick. Once they were loose I spun them off with my finger. It was when I tried to slide the speaker off the studs that is where ran into a problem. So I removed the (3) torx bolts from the side of the dash. I was able to lightly pull on the dash and I gained enough clearance to slide the old speaker off the studs. I didn't have to remove any other torx bolts. Which reduced the pita factor. Install of the new speaker was reverse. I used 4x6 pioneer 2 way speakers.

Yes. They mount with the tabs on the outside. I started two of the nuts and just slide the speaker behind them. They went in very nicely. Still have to do the driver side. I will have to remove the emergency brake. I think I can do the same thing I did on the passenger side to pull the old speaker out.

I recently replaced the stock sound system in my 95 wrangler and i had the same problem with the indash speakers, i used the same pioneer 2-ways up front as you did and took the sound bar off ordered 2 6x9 boxes to mount ontop of the wheel wells and got 2 6x9 5-way pioneer speakers in the back with all new speaker wire and a dual deck with the motorized face plate it sounds amazing blows the stock system out of the water i can finally hear music loud and clear with the top and doors off

They sound pretty good for such a small speaker.

Yeah I found a wiring harness with the wires cut just behind the passenger seat. I think it had rear speakers at one time. I will probally just make a couple small 6x9 boxes for the wheel wells or something.

I have tried replacing speakers both ways and the easiest way is to either pull the dash or pay a car audio place 25 buck to do it for you. lol

I was worried about that too, so I purposly stripped the screws holding the speakers to the mount and hot glued the top of the hex screw that holds the mount to the roll bar

nobodys gettin away with those speakers...well except me when I spend 2 hours drilling out all the screws and buying new mounts if I ever blow out the speakers that are in there now
