Audio upgrade!

Hey guys. I've seen a bunch of post on here about speaker and sub upgrades. Gotta a question thought. Got a 08 jk 2 door. Do you think it would sound good or be smart. To take out the rollbar speakers and replace them with 6.5 subs with some poly fill. Or will they be pointless? And just go with a nice quality speakers

your best bet would probably be to go with 2way 6.5 inch speakers up there along with the poly fil. stock is just a woofer type 6.5 inch. with the 2way speaker, the tweeter is what will give you the feeling of more volume coming from the soundbar. people like the infinity kappas, alpines, and polks.

if you aren't going to put in an aftermarket amp, you may want to go with 2ohm speakers to get the most out of it.

I just got a sport jku with the infinity sound system and I read on here that the polks blow mine out of the water and they are only 100 bucks at best buy so I was going to give those a try along with polyfil. My brother keeps trying to get me to upgrad the sub but I think I'm going to keep it for now

Okay. Ya. I was going to put Polk 651s in the front. I have an eclipse avn 50d head unit. Puts 15w rms for 4 speakers. It isn't much. But the whole audio system was bone dry stock. No Infinity or anything lol. But the I want those for the front. But the rollbar speakers I want some bass out of them. So I was thinking the kicker 6.5 shallow 10cvt 65. But I don't want an aftermarket amp
So poly no point without aftermarket amp?
And the Polk 651 are 4 ohm. What diff would it make with the 2?

I've got the polk dxi650s shallow mounts with stock non infinity head unit. They're way better than it was stock. Poly fil helped too. They really brought my sound bar to life. I can't speak for upgrades to the infinity system, but just adding the polks to the sound bar made a difference to the stock system. Granted, some 2 ohms could have helped more, but from my experience, the polks are more than enough for the soundbar.

I'm now adding a jl 700/5 amp, focal 165 component fronts, and a jl 8" sub to fill out the sound some more.
