Question Questions about stereo upgrade JK (crossovers?)

I am looking to upgrade the stereo in my new JK... had a few questions answered when I posted in the JK forum.

I was originally looking into a Alpine set up with the CDA-117 HU. To save some money I am thinking of getting a Sony CDX-GT700HD..

and some cheaper speakers. Anyone know about this HU? Looking like good reviews.

Main question. Would like to get a component speaker set up. Where is a good place to mount the crossovers in the JK?

stay as far away from sony as possible!!!!

that is a nice alpine unit, you might want to check ebay for that unit, usually much cheaper than from crutchfield and other sites.

i have a tj with a factory soundbar and installed a set of infinity kappa perfect components and mounted the crossover inside the sound bar with some double sided foam tape. the kappa components go for a good price on ebay.

here is a shot of my sound bar had to do some trimming of the cover to get the tweeters in, and had to drill 2 small holes for each, two for the mounting screw and two for the speaker wire hole that is all hidden.

Dear Algebra, Please stop asking us to find your X. She's never coming back and don't ask Y.
