Aftermarket component speakers are designed to produce mid-bass. If you are looking for more "bass" then you are looking for sub-bass and would probably benefit from a sub-woofer.

edub707 oh i guess i should tell you i got the kickers on crutchfield. best price i could find and it came with the adapters to fit in the jeep. the front ones needed a tiny bit of cutting and they also come with the stock speaker wire adapters so you dont have to cut the stock ones. i got the infinity basslink on ebay that was the best price i could find for that. you can decide if you want the basslink 1 or 2. i have 2 kicker mopar 10s in my challenger not that good wish i would have just put the basslink in as in the jeep it sounds great

i got the kicker ds60 for the front and the kicker ks6.2 for the soundbar was able to put the crossover in the soundbar. i got a infinity basslink subwoofer for the back system sounds good for a little over 400 bucks and some time to install it. dont expect whole bunch out of the soundbar without an amp though. i dont want to do the whole amp thing dont want to take out the factory head unit. that would be a big job. you can see pics of the sub in my profile.

derfC +1 to tubes.... adds more 'thud' than 'thump' to your sound.


IMO, the stock head unit is the biggest issue. The rear channel is so quiet that back seat passengers can barely hear it & replacing the soundbar speakers doesn't help much. A sub helps a bit, but it's still lacking.

I recently installed a Pioneer AVH-2300 (double-din DVD) & the difference is HUGE. My dash speakers came alive & I can finally hear something coming from the soundbar! I get decent bass out of the fronts (soundbar speakers don't fare as well due to their enclosure), but will be adding a powered sub very soon anyways.

FYI, if you opt for the Polks, you will definitely want to also add a sub. I've used Polk speakers for years & while they sound spectacular, you won't get much low end out of them.

I don't know abort the kickers but I know unless you like muddy bass I would steer away from bazooka tubes. Never been impressed with them.

Yes usually you can find a place, or get a a set like the alpine sps600c that has the cap for the tweeter inline. Not sure about size or fitment in the jk's though. Haven't had much experience with them, got out of car audio in 2010 and no one had brought one to my shop for anything other than a remote starter or heated seats!

I am going with these (Polk Audio db651s) overhead and was thinking that I should just get two sets and put the same in the dash as well. I can get them for a steal on amazon and they can get wet which is sweet.

Give me your opinion please.
