scwalls I just replaced my stock speakers (both dash and soundbar in my 2006... head unit already done) with Polk DBs (from Crutchfield).

As a relative electronic newb, 'twas an Incredibly easy install... Got the poly fill at Michael's Arts and Crafts; one pillow was enough.

Quite happy with the results. The Polks came highly recommended in multiple threads and the marine rating helped sell me as well.

I wholeheartedly recommend going for it.

Jerry Bransford Yep, just go to your local yardage store and buy a bag of polyfil pillow stuffing. It costs about 1/10th for the same stuff that the local audio stores sell.

rawdawg44 hey rumdog...i've heard many others mention adding polyfill...please excuse the dumb question...i'm still in newbie status...is polyfill just the inside stuffing of a pillow? and how much do u put in? as much as can fit?

thanks!

Jerry Bransford Yep Polks are good because they typically have the high Sensitivity rating needed to make them work well with the low powered factory stereo system.

For the dash, I'd go Polk 5.25" round with adapters to convert them from the factory 4x6 size opening. Round 5.25" speakers sound better than oval 4x6 speakers do.

I don't think Polk makes any Jeep size speakers with the undesireable low Sensitivity ratings but to make sure, just make sure the Polk speakers you buy have at least a 90 or 91 dB Sensitivity rating which will assure you will have plenty of volume from your factory sterero.

JeepinCpt Great thank you for the advice. How about the dash?

Rumdog make sure to pack the sound bar with polyfill. The best speakers money can buy will still sound like crap in that hollow sound bar.

USMC0802 I would recommend the 6.5" Polk dbs for the sound bar. They are great for the money, and marine rated, so you don't have to worry about them if you get caught with the top down.
