Speaker bar with 6.5 inch subwoofers in it?

Ok so other than being a jeeper I am definitely an audiofile. I have upgraded my speakers and have a decent sized 10 inch infinity sub in the back. I was thinking about getting another soundbar and mounting it on the back of the sport bars (over the trunk facing forward) and putting some kicker 6.5 inch subs in it for some added midrange punch... any thought/ ideas?

It will be a waist. If you already have front & rear highs but looking for more bass just upgrade to a 12" kicker sub or two 10'' kicker subs for more punch. You will not get the bass you looking for from 6.5'' speakers out of a soundbar. I have KS600 Kickers on my soundbar that are use only for highs powered by my HU. Being said that pretty loud in a jeep. Are you looking to supply the whole neighborhood with music or yourself.

The normal sound bars are all made of thin metal and would be horrible for sound from a "subwoofer".. You could probably build an MDF enclosure to spec and it may sound alright. In my experience subwoofers in a sealed box facing forward in an open area like that don't work out to well.

I had a friend who mounted his amp under the back seat. It obviously won't keep it completely dry in a down-pour but better than mounting on the sub box or just about any other place in a Jeep! Unless you want to fab up some sort of enclosure for the amp as well! But it still needs air to keep cool..

Mine was under the backseat too until i was caught in pouring rain, I decided to build an amp rack that fits under my downfiring sub with one fan pulling cold air in and the other pushing th hot air out, and then silicone it and bedline the outside, its gonna be low profile too so no one jacks my stuff. Anyone have a better idea?

you can fit a decent 10" sub behind the rear seat, that's what i started with. there are a lot of good 10" affordable subs out there that can put out some good power.

i like the 10" SSA DCON, its affordable and sounds great for a sub its size and only needs 300 watts, even in a small "hatchback" enclosure it pounds better than most any other sub in its price range.


here is a link, and there are video clips on the bottom of the page

You can even fit a 12" sub in the back. I originally had a 10" Memphis, but decided to get more power so i went with a 12" Rockford Fosgate. They both fit comfortably, but you need to get a shallow mount subwoofer. Memphis and Rockford Fosgates are very good and will last as long as you treat them right. I also have the amp under the seat. the only downside is that they overheat after tow hours and it shuts off to protect it from damage. When my top is off, I usually take the subwoofer out anyways because it is just asking to be taken. I hope this helps!
