What size speakers?

What size speakers are in my YJ? I dont have a sound bar, just the front ones. I am on crutchfield trying to figure it out but they say it can take 4", 5 1/4" or 6". That cant be right...

Would like to see the audio systems people have.
I have a Sony explode headunit. Replaced stock dash 4x6" with coaxle. Installed 4" coaxle in each door. 2 6x9 triaxle in custom soundboxes in rear. Sound boxes are mounted with special bracket w/wing nuts to easily remove when needed.(no amps or subs)

I got factory dash speakers(As I haven't gotten into tearing the dash apart yet, to change them). I have a factory overhead sound bar That I put 5.25 inch Yamaha speakers in. Got lucky and the Jeep came with a Pioneer Supertuner(50 watts per channel)CD, MP3, WMA, USB and one wire hook up. The USB is great, put my music on a 8gb flash drive and never once heard it skip while off-roading or hitting bumps on the road. I then had a sub box w/2-12" Memphis Subs and 1100 watt Amp from my old S10 Extended cab, so I installed it in the Jeep, after removing the back seat( I am divorced and my son is 24 yrs. old, so no need for the back seat anymore). I have had many different sound systems over the 31 years of owning and driving vehicles, and none of them sound as good as this one does, in or out of the Jeep. Its as loud as I could ever want, Feel every stroke of the bass, but its not obnoxious sounding and vibrating every loose peice of metal in my Jeep. Couldn't be happier, except replacing the Dash Speakers.

If you choose that way then get a new cowl gasket because yours is probably going to leak after you fold down the windshield. The second way is have lots of patience wiggle your hand in the with a socket (youll feel like a contortionist) take the bolts off slide the speaker on down and reverse for the new one (this is the way i did it all 3 times). It takes patience this way but it is very doable. I wouldn't ditch them myself. I would think it would sound better with the indash speakers and soundbar. Im actually considering of adding a sound bar in along with the 6x9's in the back and 4x6 in dash speakers. But good luck.
Hope that helps! I tried the hand in dash am didn't have patience I ended up just disconnecting them and getting tweeters and running the speaker wire from there to the tweeters. Plus I also have a sound bar btw

Iv also had three different after market radios in there it came with one that didn't work half the time so I replaced it with an extra I had around the house and then I wanted a aux cord outlet so I did some bartering with a couple buddy's and put the one I have in there now in. Like said before its probably the back ledge all I did was get a long flat head screw driver and managed to get it down or push it back up.

I replaced my fronts with the Polk marine 4x6 speakers. The holes did not line up with my YJ studs. I figured out that by laying the old speaker on top of the Polk and drilling out holes to match my studs it lined up and went on perfect. I did need to add some foam spacers because the Polk tweeter is not flush with the front of the speaker, it sits out a little.

I just did mine. Did a pair of Alpine coaxials up front. Not much fun to get your hand in there, but my windshield hinges are frozen so I couldn't drop the windshield. Passenger side is easy, especially if you pull the glove box. Driver side is more difficult, pull the emergency brake assembly and take the three screws out that are to the left of the speaker. That will allow you to flex the dash out a bit.

Because I put coaxials in I needed to space the speaker back from the dash a bit. So I put a set of nuts on the dash studs and left them about a 1/2" from the dash. Then I put in the speakers and then the nuts to hold the speakers in. This stopped the highs from rubbing on the back of the dash.

I just bought some kicker replacements so I will be doing this very soon. I'm not excited but it needs to be done.

Darnit.....

I want to do all new speakers, and put in a radio into my YJ, but you guys just made me decide to put it off for a while. LOL

I would prefer and recommend a marine type speaker for the Wranglers as it tends to get wet, and sometimes muddy inside, and its great to be able to just hose it all off.

It's a good way to get to know the dash and all the wiring behind it as well as the removal and replacement. It is a royal PITA. However it is a good opportunity to repair anything behind the dash that might need it, as well as replace the windshield cowl seal.
I did mine and decinded to take apaprt everything and repaint, went from tan to black and am very happy with the results..
This is NOT a 3 hour project, don't underestimate the pain of a Jeep.

It's not all that tough. Just get in there and do it. It's about a three hour job. Most of that time is spent swearing though.

Eventually I will. Working on updating the mechanical aspects of the jeep first. Radio is far far at the bottom of my list for about any vehicle. lol
