ronbero I un-soldered the receiver from my stock speaker and connected to my new Polks. worked well - and THANK YOU for a battery tip ! as an FYI if you put the stock connected on the new Polks in the same way as the stock speaker (i.e., left side on stock, stays left on Polk) - you have the polarity correct.

That was a great tip! Thank you!

I do have to drill new holes but it shouldn't be too bad, I live in an apt. complex, so I am going off sight so I don't have eyes on the new speakers going in!

I also found a link if others are interested, that lists many different Jeep models wiring diagrams.

Thanks again guys!

thetrifakta I may just splice them. X Mas shopping and the little guy going to a birthday party are taking over right now! Thanks for the battery/polarity tip!! Thought I saw something like that in JP magazine recently!!

Macman1138 I got 2 pairs of Sony 4 way speakers to replace the stocks and they made all the difference in the world.
I pulled the bass in the back and replaced it with a really tough Audio Pipe.
Everything sounds nice now.

Jma20a Best buy would have them. Or u can just tap into the factory harness. I believe the negative wire has a stripe on it. Or u can run all new wires to the soundbar

I didn't!! No one seemed to know what I needed and said "you should be fine" So I just got the speakers and I'm prepared for a surprise! I didn't even think I would need one!

thetrifakta Thanks! I picked them up today and will put them in sometime this weekend. I'll let ya know how it goes!

Jma20a they should fit fine, if anything the only drilling needed is a few small holes to secure the speaker, takes 5 minutes.

Sound Bar Speakers

Hey all,
I want to replace my stock (blown) speakers in my sound bar. They appear to be 5 1/4.
I am told that 6 1/2 will fit and may require only a "little drilling". I am just getting a pair of cheaper RF and hope they don't get stolen.
Any experience with this? Any advice is great!
Thanks!!

Here is a link to the speakers at Car Toys if you're interested.
