some weeks ago i replaced the stock speakers in the front and in the soundbar with some better sony speakers.
the stock radio ist now much louder and sounds better.
my next step will be to replace the stock subwoofer with a better one.

The sound in my Jeeps sucks too. So, just replacing the speakers helped?

I also enjoyed viewing your Photos. Thanks!

Replacing the crappy stock paper cone speakers with something else will help a lot more! So long as you don't get another paper cone speaker.

Yeah a sub will help a lot. My problem was that when I put the top down, I couldn't hear it anymore. And what I could hear, sounded terrible.

So I went to Best Buy and they had some open item stuff. Wound up with 2 10" Sonys, in a box the perfect size for behind the back seat, and a 1000 watt amp all for $239 installed. Someone had ordered them for an install and never showed or paid for them.

So I got 4 matching sony speakers for the soundbar and fronts and never looked back. Sure, I get some crap for "having a system", being a grown man and all , but I'm not one to pass up a bargain when I see one. AND it does sound awesome! Pearl Jam and the Black Crowes never sounded so good.

I still want to know how a grown man is supposed to get his hands up into the dash to replace the dash speakers!

i spend enough time in my jeep everyday for it to be important to me to have nice sound. i've upgraded mine over a year or so and it's almost done as i want it.

pioneer 6500


Kicker KS525


Kicker KS525


Bazooka ELA 260


JL Audio 10w0




currently working on a rear seat in-seat enclosure for the 10" sub. will regain the little cargo space there is and it will sound 100x better.
