Speaker fitment

OK so I'm looking to replace the entire jeeps audio.
So when it comes a to audio I feel very retarded, I don't understand what the receiver box thing does with audio and what speaker will fit.

I came across a thread where this guy lost some of the controls for the speakers.

I've been looking at Polk and kiker. I don't want to have any problems with the. Controls or anything, just a direct fitment with a decent amount of bass.

There are many threads that talk about the Jeeps audio. I don't know what year your Jeep is but if it is fairly new, the audio system sucks. Whether it has a 130N, 430, or 700 series, the problem lies in the entire system. The speakers are all 2 ohm. If you replace just the speakers, not much improvement will happen. And if you replace the speakers with 4 ohm speakers, your volume will be cut in half. To do the system justice, you need to replace the tweeters, the dash board, the sound bar and the sub if you have one to much better 4 ohm speakers. Then you must get an amp and use LOCs and PACs. If you don't know how to do all this, you should bring it to a good audio place that knows how to do all this. You shouldn't lose any controls if done properly.

Definitely look at the Kicker model 77kick10 speakers. They are a replacement upgrade speaker made specifically for Chrysler vehicles. You do not need wire harness adapters or mounting adapters. The factory harness plugs directly into them and they sound great.

Those speakers are coaxial. The rear(Roll Bar) speakers are coaxial. For the front it depends on whether you have components or coaxial. My understanding is that the front speakers are components in a JK, depending on the year. Components do normally sound better, but you can place coaxial's in the front too.

When you say the entire system, you mean just the speakers or are you getting new amps and the whole shebang?

Go to Crutchfield.com and many of your questions will be answered, including "What fits?".

and a lot of money, I am sure. It is the price you pay for good sound.

So true. It depends on how much you value good sound. Priceless? Sure, if I could afford it. lol.

I spent about $1200.00 on my system, and I didn't need all those PAC adapters.

Then honestly,and I mean no offense, you should not try doing a system yourself... Find a buddy who does know that can help/teach you car audio. When your jeep is in pieces is NOT the time to realize you're in over your head.

Trust me I'm not offended at all, I never planed on doing this myself. I just wanted to know what I can do to get better sound, I'll probably go with the kikker77kick10

Or spend your due diligence researching what it is you want and how to achieve it. Break it all up into compartments: Speaker upgrade, Head Unit install, Amp install, Sub install. Draw up a FULL plan and tackle them one by one.

There's nothing too complicated in an audio upgrade. But you need to have a full plan and understanding of what you're doing before you get started.
