jeepwayoflife I put a 6" ported sub in the back, not crazy loud but sounds fine in the little cabin of a jeep, then I put a speaker in the center console. This speaker does mids and bass, so it really rounds out the system nicely. Kenwood head unit, alpine front speakers, sony (ewww) speakers in Soundbar, 600watt amp, and the two subwoofers/mids

wedu22 ^^Nice, I like that

sonofabeach For the front I have some 5 1/4 Pioneers. In the sound bar I have 6 1/2 $25 cheapies from Wally World.
For the back I bought a cheap brand box at Wally World last year.
I have no amp just a 50 x 4 cd player but itall really sounds great


I then cut a thick piece of wood and bolted the box to it pointing downward
Facing downwards, the bass is nice.


I put some brackets on each side and used wing nuts to secure it. Then I rattlecan bedlined it all.

Also do you have the amps yet? If not I think you're going to be surprised at how big they are and you also have to account space for wires and being able to actually get a screwdriver somewhere to tighten terminals down. I have a Sony xm4s which is a very tiny amp, but there was no way it was fitting in the center console without pulling out the inside plastic.
Yep, got the amps.
This one
Amazon.com: Sound Storm Laboratories EV4.400 400-Watt 4-Channel Power Amplifier with High/Low Crossover: Car Electronics
and this one
Amazon.com: Pioneer GM-D7500M Class-D Mono Amplifier with 800 Watts Max. Power: Electronics

They are pretty small for what they push.

Not a fan of Sony. I bought a Sony stereo for my living room and it was in the shop twice in the first year. The last time they returned it all scratched up and wouldn't do any thing about it. A $400 stereo shouldn't be in the shop like that.
Also, we bought about 2 dozen Sony laptops at work and about 80% of them broke within the first 2 years. I haven't heard any thing bad about their car stuff but they have left a bad taste.

Yea, just problems with heat. I like the idea, safe, water resistant, hidden, but there would likely be a bit of heat. Im not sure if it would be a problem though, because you have that big opening for the ebrake. It seems like as long as that big slit stays open, it should be enough to cool it. My amp is in a sealed tuffy box in the back of my jeep. No airflow and its 600 watts. Went on a 3hr car ride in 65-70 degree weather and when I opened the box after it was maybe 86-90 degrees. Not that bad for a sealed box. So, I would say you are fine DEPENDING on how many watts the amp is and how many speakers you are pushing with it.

I love that though i think thats what im gonna do rather than putting them under my dash
02-29-2012 12:06 AM
AirWick i'm thinking of getting the Polk DB521 5.25" for the dash and DB6501 6.5 for my sound bar. Anything else I should keep in mind as far's parts that I would need? I know i'll need a hard plate and baffles for the dash. I'm buying mine from Amazon so i'm not sure if it'll come with all the wires for install? Thanks!

superdavis78 Memphis PR 4" in the dash with adapters, and Memphis SR 6 1/2" in the bar. Sounds pretty good. I'm kicking a 10 year old Pioneer DEH model CD player...really need to upgrade the head unit.

They are 5.25", bolted right in.

All I had to do was drill a 2" hole for the tweeters. The crossovers are stuck inside the pod with that gray double stick tape. There's a square of Dynamat in the pods above the speaker and some poly-fill around them.
At the moment they are plugged to the factory radio but they still sound pretty good. They should sound great once I get the amp in.

The front ones haven't been put in the Jeep yet. They are mounted and ready to be put in, but they are still in my living room at the moment.

02-27-2012 12:54 PM
Dragonii So this is what I settled on...
the Orion separates in the pods

Orion 2 way in the dash


I plan to build the box into the back seat and use a 10", 2ohm, Pioneer flat sub

Amps are these.
Soundstorm 400wattx4 for the Orions

Pioneer 800 watt mono for the sub


and this head unit


Everything has been ordered and everything has arrived but the head unit. They say it will ship Wednesday.

I have a head unit in mind...
http://www.amazon.com/JVC-KD-R730BT-...=3AA7Z78CX4L65

But I am torn on speakers. I know I want 5.25" in the front and back.

What do y'all have in your TJ's?
If you put in Polk DB 521's in front and Polk DB 651's in rear (Fit in stock sound bar), MTX 5.25" speaker adapter, DEI Boom Mat Speaker baffles for 5.25 and 6.5 and speaker connection adapters, it is like $155 on Amazon.
