|Tonycrd||New(-er) headunit solved the problem, thanks!|

|felix225||The problem is the speakers are 2 Ohms..which means they are drawing way more power than the stock headunit can provide, which makes the speakers clip and distort..either upgrade the headunit (I would suggest) or go with an external amp (more wiring, more complex install but more flexibility later on).|

|Tonycrd||I corrected the +/- swap the PO did... nothing. Tried the speakers in another car, work fine. So I guess the problem is the head unit.|

|I-Want-A-Jeep||I don't know what the stock speakers are as far as impedance. My suggestion would be to get an amp for the speakers.|

Thanks guys... these speakers are only 2 Ohms...

Possibly the impedance of the speakers is much lower than the stock speakers and is causing the stock head unit to clip the signal. It could also have to do with the aftermarket speakers being more efficient than the stockers.
Answer, get an aftermarket head unit that can operate at the resistance of the speakers or get an amp to be able to adjust the signal so it doesn't clip.

|the rock99||Not sure about Spain, but in the US there are two common impedance ratings for speakers, they are either 4 ohm or 8 ohm, if they don't match your amp, they will not work right.|

That's weird: JBL GTO 6428
Last saturday I replaced the TJ's dry rotted brand X speakers for a set of these JBL 6x4 GTO 6428.
They sound like they are constantly overloaded, even with the volume way down. In fact, they sound even worse then the crap I took out. I have the stock '98 head unit.
I don't get it.
