|TJe0454||do you have an instatrunk? i mounted my head unit for my sub in my trunk|

i'm just saying, i wouldn't be too worried about theft since you have a hard top unless you live/frequent rough places around your area.
i had a soft top on my TJ for 8 years and never had an issue in the suburbs around DC

|jrohan07||Yes Hardtop always. Maybe this is why my setup seems to sound better. I will have to get a softtop as I only have taken out my freedom tops with a JKINI. The hardtop is awesome for some security but a pain in the butt to take off by yourself and having to ask friends to help.|

tint your front windows so they can't see your head unit. mine are tinted to only 50% and you can't see the head unit or anything down inside the car at night.
you could also get a head unit that looks stock and won't attract much attention
wait, you have a hard top...

I am going to get a new head unit soon and probably add a sub but I hate giving the thieves new gear.

thats neat. what is the foam called? i'm stuffing my speaker bar and dash pods with polyfil and its supposed to have a similar effect.
i've been wondering about the dodge nitro amp. i can't seem to find any for sale though

|BlackMountain||do the back speakers still sound way under powered? thats something that only replacing the head unit can fix|

|TJe0454||new head unit should be the next step IMO. one with a removeable faceplate preferable.|

Nice, i'm surprised you got such great results with just replacing the speakers.
Mr. Sinister tried replacing the speakers only at first and reported that he got lots of distortion.
Glad you had better results.

Budget sound improvement on STOCK Radio and Speakers
For those Jeep owners with the stock radio with no amp or sub who want HUGE improvement over the stock speakers without replacing the HeadUnit.
- I ordered the MOPAR KICKER 77Kick10 6.5 speakers for 65 a pair to replace the front and rear soundbar speakers.
- First I installed the rear because those were very easy. Sound was a slight improvement sitting in the back seat (stock radio somewhat mutes the rear for some reason) but volume increased with better bass and clarity (no rattle).
- Next I replaced the front speakers (used instructions that came with speakers) Note do right speaker first cause this was the easiest and then do the left a liitle pain in the butt and I used the cardboard that came with the speakers to hold the cover dash panel open so I could get to the screws..take off or unstrap the left door to give you more room to work.
- The top screw holding the speaker in remove first and install last.
- The sound with all 4 speakers was incredible over stock...much better high, crisp, sounds like a small sub has been added.
- Next I found out that the 2 tweeters upfront could be replaced with JW-JKTWEET super tweeters with included crossovers and installed them. Sound is even better than stock.
Overall I am extremely pleased with this setup. You could get away without replacing the the rear speakers but the front and tweeters make the JK much better than stock at a great price.
