audio upgrade yj wrangler

So im new to the wrangler forum and so far everything has been very informative. I am also a recent wrangler owner. My primary vehicle is a 2005 wk Grand Cherokee, and i just purchased a 94 yj. I havent had to do much because the original owner took great care of it. I dropped the tank and replaced all the ruber fuel lines ans I am slowly attacking small projects. Last week I painted and plasti-dipped the bumpers and bumpettes. I also took care of a simple tune up. Honestly it runs great...slightly noisey when running which I expected with 160k it bears a slight resemblance to an E320 diesel...my thoughts possibly lifters but thatsa topic for a different thread. My question is about audio. Ive already swapped out the stock 4x6 byt lets face it, no matter what brand speaker a 4x6 will never compete with road/wind noise. So my question is has anyone had anyluck with speaker enclosures? I have four 8" mid/full range speakers and am looking for ideas in enclosures before I resort to building my own. I like the idea of wakeboard enclosures because they can be easily mounted to the roll bar and most are waterproof... any ideas? Or word of wisdom? Thank you

4x6 speakers in the front and a sound bar overhead can put out a lot of sound, you could probably try to locate a couple of TJ sound pods (not the sound bar like the first generation of TJ), which can fit a 6.5" speaker. Those alone put out a lot of sound on their own in my 89.

From there, the only way to get more bass is to either amp the speakers, or run a subwoofer, most prefer to run a sub.
